First Day!

I decided to do a trial run to show my kids who are wanting to homeschool what it would be like.  We had a good day.  I'm feeling more confident, and I think I'll end up with all of my kids at home for this year.

    way to go

    First of all, your kids are all beautiful!! And so are your sunflowers : )

    Secondly, my kids were older when we did the ivory soap experiment, but they got a big kick out of it!! What did your kids think?

    And lastly, you can totally do this!!! Just hang in there. In a couple months you and your kids will be so happy to realize what a great decision this was.

    Thank you!  I don't think it would be summer at our house without our sunflower hideaway.

    My oldest read the Ivory package before I opened it up and read that it floated, so we had to start our experiment time finding out if that was really true.  And then I had to send them to find a different bar soap in the house to see if it would float (Irish Springs, so it sank).  The kids were so excited by the experiment, they really loved seeing it.  I need to spend more time with the older kids to go over why it did that and would the Irish Springs have done the same.

    I'm a waffler.  I went out with a mom who convinced me to send my kids to a charter where she was sending her kids, and now I'm second guessing my homeschooling thing again.  Waffle, waffle, waffle....

     Are you a "waffler" by nature? Or is this something that is inclusive to your new venture of homeschooling??

    I think I'm a waffler in particular where it concerns my oldest.  I still don't know what's right for him, though we've found many things that are wrong for him.  And then, do I want to bring the other kids along on this adventure, only to have that be so completely wrong for them and have it disturb my oldest?  Yeah, I'm a waffler.

    They're 10, almost 9, 7, 6, 4.

    I'm assembling a hodge podge of things.  Life of Fred and some worksheets and games for math, literature, BOB books, handwriting worksheets, tons of library books, and a mess of science I find here there and everywhere.
