    Smile So it looks like.... Update in post 9

    We will be starting a trial homeschooling period in our house next week. I talked to hubby about it today and he said "sure whatever"..So Im going to take that as an opportunity to go gung ho on this and start next week. Think we will try it for two weeks, structured (per Hubby's request. Think I have better chance getting him into homeschooling than unschooling so this is how its going to go down ) The kids are excited. I think this way my hubby will see how it can work...or I will see how it cant work LMAO

    So Im excited!

    kinnnnnnda. LOL. I have a few moms from our Church that have some cirriculum that we are going to look at, and I have found some free online stuff that I have bookmarked. I guess over the next few days Im going to look at it all and try and make a decision on whats going to work best for the kiddos

    I hope it goes well for you.


    If your looking for ideas on things to do, is a project on a subject the kids wanted to and getting bristol board and making a big poster about it. They were to into it and SO excited to show my husband and talk about it all with him when he came home.

    We do those through the year but it's always a huge hit.

    You can check out the Ontario curriculum to see what is being taught at their grade level...it is broken down by subject too. This is helpful to make sure you're on the same track if ever you decide to put them back into school or they have to write some standardized test(s).

    So after lots (and lots and lots) of prayer and testing the waters we have decided that we are not going to homeschool this year. There were a lot of things that effected the outcome and I have a very huge peace about sending them to school this year. I feel this is the right move for us and for them. Just wanted to give an update Thanks to everyone who gave me advice and encouragement! Who knows what we will be called to do next year!!!
