We start school as soon as our summer vacations are over. I told the kids we could wait until August to officially start school, but once the box arrived, anticipation was high.

Ready to get started

We had to run errands first, clean the house, put laundry away, eat lunch, and FINALLY it was time to open the box. Warren, the oldest, had to be in charge of course. They spent thirty minutes looking through all of their books and supplies.

Exciting new homeschool books and supplies

They separated them in categories on the dining room table and then we spent the afternoon cleaning and organizing their homeschool cabinet for the new year.

Our homeschool cabinet

They've decided they can't wait any longer, so we are starting homeschool as soon as the baseball season ends on August 1st! There's nothing quite like the thrill of crisp new books full of knowledge, boxes of science tools and looking forward to cool fall mornings sipping tea by the fireplace while we read aloud. Life doesn't get much better than that!

    Hi, was wondering if you'd still recommend "Sonlight" for children with NLD? Did you supplement math? A subject my daughter struggles with. ANY info would be appreciated. My daughter is entering 7th grade and I'm seriously considering homeschooling this year.

    • Hi, Rebecca. I have found that Sonlight works well with a wide range of students, and I believe that you could absolutely make it work for your family. You may find that doing more of the books as "Read-Alouds" (where you read them to her) may be a great way to help her succeed. My situation was very different, but my mom read many of the books out loud to me because I struggled with the mechanics of reading. For your daughter, reading aloud to her will give her the opportunity to thrive in her strengths (listening) and you the chance to take time to discuss ideas at her pace.

      Sonlight has a wide range of math programs available to you, so pick the one that will help your daughter the most.

      If you have any questions about which materials might be the best pick for your family, I highly recommend you chat with one of our Homeschool Advisors: http://www.sonlight.com/contact/advisors/ They will be able to help answer your questions.

      Homeschooling is a great option, and I look forward to hearing about your success as a family!
