I have to say, I'm not feeling all that positive about starting to homeschool my daughter. I don't like feeling like this. I 'm just being selfish, that's all. It's not that having two kids at home means a quiet day. Those two often fight, but it's really kind of peaceful after the other three kids and Hubby leave. That quiet won't be the same with my daughter at home. She's a talker.
I also enjoy a little more personal time during the day that I'll loose with homeschooling.
It was hard to send her to school today, for the last time this year. As I watched her get on the bus I wondered, again, if I'm doing the right thing. There are certainly some things about school that I can't offer here.
But I start thinking about the reasons I'm doing this. It's for her. I can offer her an education that she can't get in the public schools. The schools must teach to the lowest denominator. The slower kids need education too, but it's tough on those who are ready to learn more and can advance more quickly. There are many reasons I'm doing this. They are all for her. That is what is most important. My two little ones will benefit from her school instruction.
My daughter is excited. That's reason enough.
