Time for Scool!

September 21, 2012   |   by Rachel

So we've done it!  We've decided to do something that I never thought I'd do.  We're homeschooling, Winfield at least.  I've always had great awe at homeshool parents and wondered how they did it all!  Win had a great experience at Holland East last year.  His teacher, Mrs, Fuentes, should get and award every single day.  She has all of the enthusiasm of a first year teacher but all of the experience and nuance of the 17 years that she's been teaching.  However, looking forward we could see that Holland East probably wasn't going to be a good fit.  Winfield has a unique learning style and a traditional school model isn't likely the right spot for him.  He really wanted to homeshool, so we're giving it a go. So far it's been a good start.  If you see nervousness in his expression just be glad that he didn't photograph me!  Talk about nervous.  This momma was kinda freaking out and trying not to let him know.  We're 3 weeks into is (thus the lack of blogging lately) and we're off to a good start.  We have a good groove that will probably change 100 times this year.  But it's a start. BTW, that stack of books is Jared's.  We were rearranging our book shelves to accommodate the homeschool material :-)  It oddly looks like I'm going to make him read non-traditional eschatological texts and Watchman Nee. Homeschool is particularly easy now that I've taught Dale how to keep Win on task :-)

wow, that's awesome rach! that first picture of win with all the religious books is pretty hilarious. good luck!


I've been following your blog awhile for the photographs but after this post, I'll be following your homeschool journey also. As a fellow homeschool mom, I remember those days wondering how it was all going to play out. Ten years and two kids later, we're still going strong and loving the journey. P.S. Sonlight ROCKS!
