It seems like we just wrapped up our homeschooling year and now the books and curricula I've ordered are trickling in for the new year. I'm almost done ordering everything which is a great feeling. This past school year wasn't the most stellar of homeschooling years for us (though the boys are all doing fine); I think it kind of had to do with the fact that we adopted a little someone special into our family last fall :-) I love the flexibility that homeschooling provides and I'm looking forward to a good solid year. You know, I always wanted to be a mom and a teacher (just like my mom), but never did I think that I would get to be my own children's teacher! I love it! Sometimes when we're out and about town, people will ask the boys where they go to school. They are always happy to reply, "my kitchen!" :-)
We have decided for Darya to go to school. I have heard great things about the local school where she will be attending the ESE pre-k class. She will get speech therapy twice a week and occupational therapy once a week. If for some reason it doesn't work out for her (though I imagine she will love it), then I can look into other options. I am certainly not opposed to homeschooling her, but for now this is what we decided would be the best choice for her. So, while she's at school in the mornings, I will homeschool the boys.
I can't believe the first official day of school is in a matter of weeks. When I was a kid, it seems summers where much longer - we didn't start until AFTER Labor Day.
Anyway, three more wonderful weeks of summer break to enjoy! I think I enjoy the break as much as the kids do :-)
