Back to Homeschooling

We are going to let the kiddos finish out the school year here, but when we move to Maryland next year I am going to go ahead and homeschool Beth and Matt for first grade and kindergarten. I guess our adventure in public schools has proved to be short lived! I just really miss the freedom we had at home. Right now our schedule is me driving, driving, driving....and Beth's schedule is school, homework, a short playtime, then dinner, bath, and bed. I miss all the free time we had to do things as a family before. In any case, I am not sorry I sent them for this half of the year. They are enjoying it, and it has given me a lot more time to spend with just my little girls. I'm planning on taking the summer off, and then I think we will all be ready to pick back up with the schooling in September. This also means I can stop worrying about finding a half decent school in D.C. or Maryland, and that is a HUGE relief.

Homeschooling definitely spoils a mom. We cyber schooled and within four hours we had our day done with extra work completed and no homework. I loved it!

I think it's important to have had the experience you're having - Some days I could totally use a reminder as to WHY the heck I put myself through this!

Enjoy those two little ones while you have the extra one on... two time! I know you must cherish every second.
