I can’t believe I’m closing in on the end of my thirteenth year of homeschooling. When I started thirteen years ago, I was begging just to “try it for a year.” I only had one school-aged child at that time. Since then, I’ve homeschooled every grade. I homeschooled my oldest for nine years before he graduated. My middle son was homeschooled from K-8. He’s now thriving in our local public high school. Emma – currently fifth grade – has been homeschooled all along. She will be my first to homeschool all the way through.
We’re currently exploring a few co-ops in our area. We’re investigating one right now that will allow her to take a pottery and a Shakespeare class next year. She’s quite a bit excited about it. I’ve never used a co-op before so I’m a little nervous. But, I’m excited about our options, as well.
Right now, we are focusing on wrapping up this year. We have 2 ½ weeks left of our “official” school year. We may have to do a few extra days of math, and we will be working on some grammar stuff over the summer. But, we’ll officially wrap it up at the end of May. I’ve purchased all of our curriculum for next year, and I’m anxious to open the books that are currently stored on a shelf. I will spend a few hours each week this summer planning our studies for next year. I’m hoping to make some changes to how we do things, but that’s a post for another day.
