DH and I decided last week that we are going to try homeschooling again. We had a conversation about Sweet Pea and our worries about possible bullies and bad attitudes. We decided that the best thing for our children is for us to take care of their education.
The original thought was to let Sweet Pea go to 5th grade and then we would start with 6th grade. By that time, Little Bit would be old enough to go to Kindergarten, and Sweet Pea and I would have uninterrupted school time.
But the more we talked to people, the more support we got, we understood that we needed to start as soon as we can. We're going to leave Sweet Pea in 4th grade, but we will start homeschooling her in 5th grade.
So that leaves Little Bit. What to do with her? The obvious answer is ... homeschool her as well. Thankfully, she is ready for preschool. But we don't have 2 vehicles, so we can't take her to school, so..... we're having school here.
I got a preK cirriculum book, and we have started "playing" school this week. We did half an hour on Tuesday, and we've "played" twice today for a bit over an hour. I'm glad Little Bit is having fun, but I wonder..... when will the novelty wear off? When is it going to start being difficult getting her to "play?"
So, if I don't blog as much, you know why. I'm in school.
