Homeschool!

Aaaah! We're actually doing it this year!


I'm nervous about it, sometimes I think I'm crazy for wanting to do it, but mostly I am excited.

This is something we wanted to do last year, but it just didn't work out and it wasn't right for us then. But now...it's a new year and it DOES feel right. Everyone's on board so we're going for it! We have decided to try homeschool for one school year and see how we all come out at the other end.

I've come to the conclusion that we're a mix of unschooling, Montessori and Waldorf. What would you call that?! Hahaha!

I am going to use a Montessori curriculum and supplement it with other resources, extra-curricular activities and excursions (aka field trips). We will also be doing private music lessons (Mermaid Girl's already started piano this summer).

I am certain it will be hard, but the good kind of hard. I am also certain I will say "What was I thinking!?!?" Many times, but that's OK, it will mostly be me letting off steam.

But I am also certain that my kiddos will have a great experience.

{And if I am wrong about then, that's cool. And, in Mermaid Girl's words, "we'll just go back to regular school"}.
