Today, I'm hoping to feel well enough to attend the state homeschool convention. Yes, we are joining the ranks at least for next year. We have pretty much officially decided to homeschool kindergarten. I'm excited and nervous. We've considered different options and feel that this will be the best for our family. And I must note that this in no way reflects on our time at the boys' preschool - we have enjoyed that overall! We will take it one year at a time and I'm sure there will be days that we will take it one day a time.
We have been considering classical education for a few years and that is the route we have decided to go. We have found excellent classes and great curriculum. We look forward to connecting in the local homeschool community. I'm hoping from some great tips, inspiration, encouragment, and ideas at the convention. And even if I don't find that, I will enjoy looking at the curriculum in the exhibit hall. :)
It's been a tough decision for us. A decision that we have discussed since before we had kids. It's a personal decision and not a choice that we feel is right for everyone. We don't know if we will homeschool for one year or for many years. We just know that this is the right choice for our kids for right now.
We pray for grace, wisdom and patience as we venture into this homeschooling journey. It is not a decision that we take lightly but we trust it will bring great rewards and lots of joy!
