Homeschool – so far

We have not a full week of school, yet, but things are going well. We waited until after labor day to start, so our first day wasn’t until last Tuesday.

Here are pictures from the last 2 years, for comparison. I know they aren’t perfect, but I have them and I will always treasure them. Oh, and I was doing it before all the cute fancy ones that are all over pinterest.

Wednesday Will was sick. Go figure.

I planned for this to be a full week but Lucas started having heavier nose bleeds (and started wheezing…) so we had a few interruptions due to doctors appointments. I’ll talk more about that later.

All in all I have been very happy with how things are going.

I won’t lie.

It hasn’t been free of frustration.

It hasn’t been free of empty threats.

It HAS been the best choice I’ve made for Will’s education and I deeply regret not following my parental instinct 2 years ago.

Copywork. . . handwriting (print) skills are important! (we will start cursive next year)


Hands (and tongue) ON in science! Tasting/smelling/observing spices (because Christopher wanted to find the Indies so he could bring spices back!)


He didn’t use the “F” word so we aren’t on the hook for beer. We (Charlie) can’t use the “F” word that means the same thing as before your second/initial when we are at the drop zone (DZ)…..

I take that back. I’m grateful for the friends I made while at Murchison, but it just wasn’t for him.

It might be for Lucas.

I really don’t know.

People are SHOCKED when I tell them Lucas is going to preschool and that I might be sending him to public school next year.

Every child is different. They each need something unique.

I honestly do not know what Lucas needs yet.

He is LOVING preschool though!

First day of Pre-K


Meeting Mrs. Katie!


He didn’t even say goodbye! He was SO SO excited!!


  1. Its really a great story of your children. Each child has their own specific needs. And they can get the education as per their interest.
