      It’s worth the effort if you can swing it. :)

  3. I think one of the main reasons why I want to – and probably why I shouldn’t – homeschool is that I’d want to write my own curriculum for everything. I used to teach and I love planning lessons (but not as much implementing them).

      OMG! Me too. I love the planning and like the implementing less. That’s why we switch up a lot. I suggest my post- how to end your homeshool year like a hippie. You’ll find that every year I get caught up in planning next year to the point I feel like the present year suffers. It’s just a personality thing I can’t seem to break. The planning is part of the excitement, but I can buckle down to action when I have to.

    Ah, my son is in 6th grade right now. I can’t imagine homeschooling him. I like having an opportunity to “miss” him every day. =) So I can be happy to see him afterwards. hehe What a devoted mother you are!

      It was fun, the years they were in school here and there to pick them up and see the excitement on their faces when they see you in the car line up. Then we know what happens next…Ice cream! There is so much fun to be had either way your choose to educate the children. Those after school routines are special.

    It’s interesting and very helpful to read that what worked with one child did not work for another child. Eye opening.

      Yeah, never get too comfy or attached to a curriculum because you might just have to change your mind- and its better that your mind be somewhat open if that happens!

      Thanks. The picture is the right daughter doing art but the wrong year :) I think she is 3 or 4 there. And after a quick google, I find that there seems to be some debate over the word ‘atleast’ and ‘at least’ lol. I didn’t know that was an issue.

  7. I am so impressed with your curriculum! I hope she realizes how amazing you are – or at least she will some day!

      She would probably realize it a lot sooner if I would make your Molten Chocolate Lava cakes a couple times a week. Even I would think I was amazing!
