I started getting some stuff ready for the girls for school this year. Some of the excitement is back. I love “planning”. Plotting a course for the year (whether we keep to it or not), deciding what I want them to learn this year, how I want to go about teaching it, Playing With All That Paper!! . . . I would guess that not everyone would be able to relate, but I love this!
I know some people question my desire to home school, but I love teaching my kids new stuff. I like helping them hone new skills, and for the most part I feel comfortable playing teacher. Dan was very much in favor of home schooling and wanted to help. I was hoping he would handle the science department and DEFINITELY the chemistry since I managed to flunk that class quite well. Guess I will have to do it for a little while . . . Maybe I will be able to pass this time. =)
