Re-Post from February 2012
Here is where home learning comes in: we do currently have curriculum at home (mainly classical education material) and we do many of our activities at home in a learning style. He is so easy to teach to, wants to learn, has a sweet nature, and loves family life- why not keep him "home" teaching for approx. 2-3 hrs daily and playing/experience learning the rest of the time?
I realize this is a HUGE commitment on my part but I don't find it overwhelming or find myself wondering how I will get through the day with both my boys at home with me. I enjoy them and find it easy to have fun, to learn, and explore with them. It makes me happy. So even though he is attending a fantastic school that has some wonderful teachers and offers fantastic experiences, I still wonder if homeschooling is the right choice for our family. My next step in the final decision: test results from a GT evaluation, teacher conference and counselor conference. (I sure wish my mother-in-law where still here to help me understand the public school system better and help guide me on the right choices for my boys.)
I look for guidance and have had some positive feed back from mamas/teachers that I admire and respect. The signs are here..........even Dean is impressed with the information on homeschooling that I have given him.
It will become clear soon.
