We have three kids and every year we've prayerfully considered how to educate them. So far the right answer has been a wonderful private Christian school. Before the most recent school year was over, we knew that next year will be different. Our oldest will continue at the school in grade 8, but our grade 5 daughter and grade 3 son are going to be schooled at home. We know lots of homeschooling families so we already had a lot of ideas on what we would like to do and what we wouldn't like to do! The family I admire above all others has used Sonlight for all five of their kids. I researched it and everything else on the market anyway. :-)
We bought Sonlight (Core D).
We know that we know that we know that we've made the right decision to homeschool these two.
We know that some days next winter we'll need to remind ourselves of this.
We know that not everyone will think this is a great idea.
This week has been one of those weeks...
One day people we love and respect told us that maybe it's not such a great idea.
I had to tell my employer that I won't be able to carry on with my position. (I teach adults with low literacy skills.)
At the end of this heart-wearying day our Sonlight cirriculum arrived!
So. much. fun. Opening the boxes was a high equal to the lows! The whole family was immediately engrossed in wonderful books. I admit I sat in the middle of the mess and laughed and cried. And then stayed up late reading the IG (as a teacher, I'm thrilled with the brilliant organization)!
Sorry that I don't have any cool pictures. My nose was stuck in a book. :-)
Looking forward to being part of the Sonlight family...
