Well it looks like our winter break is officially over. As sad as the kidlets and I might be, it’s time to hit the books again. Now that we are officially half-way through our first official year of homeschooling, I can say that I think it is going pretty well. I’m not going to lie though, it has definitely been a big learning curve not only for the kidlet but also me as well. Going into this I didn’t know how much work or time was going to be required of us. Nor did I know of a good schedule for us to be on. But after our first couple of months we finally started to establish what we think is a good schedule.

I have really enjoyed homeschooling though. I like seeing my son grow and learn every day. We have enjoyed tremendously getting to know other homeschoolers in our area. Going on field trips and meetups are always a blast! Some days are better than others but overall I think we are getting a pretty good hang of things now.

As we start our second half of the school year, I look forward to many new adventures in our homeschool journey. I hope to stick to a more set schedule and daily/weekly routine.

    I can't even imagine everything that goes into homeschooling. I used to help a girlfriend of mine when she got behind on grading papers for her 9th grade Technology class… I also helped teachers when I was in school, from 5-7th grade I went back to assist my 4th grade teacher with her stuff. She had bin after bin of dollar store finds, that she would assign values too on a point scale, by using blank colored price tags, and the more kids got the bigger the prices they could 'buy'. based on the score the kid got on the assignment, I knew which tag to tape to their paper. I love silly busy work like that. :)

    Ah, those were the days. :)
