So excited. A homeschooling program! ***UPDATE***
January 22, 2013 at 3:34 PM

We are members of our local children's museum. The other day I logged on to their website to check party space and saw they were offering a homeschooling class for kids 1st thru 4th grade. Its a pilot class and its 10 dollars and he gets to go for an hour. If the feedback is good they will continue it during the fall.
I just registered DS for the pilot class in two days. I hope he likes it!



We just got home, I don't know exactly what went on because i had my three year old with me and wasnt allowed to sit in the room with her :( but I peeked in the door a few times and he seemed to be really enjoying it. I saw him raise his hand a few time, he came out after the hour was over smiling and waving a "treasure map" he had made in front of him. They used graph paper and each 1 in square counted for 1 mile. His was 6 miles long lol. He then wanted to go do reading time! A first for my kids. We went into the library and listened to The Kissing Hand. (A favorite in our home) and we played a bit more and then came home. I had to babysit so it was a short trip. I got to drink a cup of coffee and watch DD play for a while. It was actually relaxing for me. I so hope they keep the program. It will only be a once a month thing though, sadly. 


Also, I picked up a local magazine called Parents and Kids and found this edition slam full of resources for kids with ADHD and a few resources for local homeschooling groups! I made a few phone calls and applied for two homeschool groups in my area. Yay!!!!

    Wow!  That's great.  There is nothing like that here.  Not too many homeschoolers around.

    In small town Mississippi I'm surprised they are offering it as well. We got so lucky finding it before the registration was over.

    I got lucky. I wish I knew of some homeschooling parents around me. Maybe we will meet some at the class. We are all alone here in this.

     Our local science museum used to offer homeschool classes & they where great but the lady that was in charge of it got fired for stealing from the museum & they stopped offering the classes after that.
