The changes of life

Photo by ladybugbkt

So once again things are changing here on the farm. We have had some difficulty with #4's teachers. I have been to the school more times than I can could count and was re-teaching everything to him when he got home form school. The teacher was unkind in so many ways, it was just too much.
I took the leap and we are now homeschooling #4 and #5. It is a big step, I am still a bit shocked at our choice but I can already see a huge difference in attitude and self esteem. A poor teacher can really do quite a bit of dammage and we are working on repairing that.
I have some friends that Homeschool, (and do it well)and have gotten so much help from them. I LOVE the curriuclms that we are using and it really makes teaching my kiddos fun. I am glad for the change but terrified all the same. I love being with the kids and they have really stepped it up a notch and are doing wonderful things.

Kudos to you for standing up for your family! The adjustment will be hard but the benefits are worth it. We thought about homeschooling because my son's teacher is EVIL (no exaggeration) but he really liked school. ALAS, I let him stay because the kids have to want to be homeschooled for it to work.

I was surprised that my kiddos wanted to homeschool... I think that the bad teacher made it an easy decision!!lol

You will love homeschooling! We have been doing it for 6 years now, and I couldn't imagine doing it any other way now! Way to go for taking the leap of faith!
