Last week we bought school supplies, and yesterday we headed to our local uniform store to buy school uniforms for Honeybee. Yes, Honeybee is joining Dimples at school this year. She is entering the fourth grade, one year ahead of Dimples. We spent last year doing intensive tutoring, not knowing then that we would choose school (rather than homeschooling) for Honeybee, but we are as sure as we can be that this will be the best learning environment for her.
I say it to myself, and to others, regularly, “My children all have different needs. We can’t do everything the same, because that would not be best for them.”
This year I will have one daughter in medical school, another daughter and a son-in-law both at local universities, Noah and Samuel at a local university, Dimples and Honeybee in third and fourth grade at a small Christian school, Rusty taking a combination of classes at home and at the local high school (another first for us) and the rest of my homeschoolers in seventh, third, K and preschool.
I”m looking forward to Sonlight American History for Ladybug (7th) and Sunshine (3rd), teaching Eby to read (and letting Little Man come along for the ride), seeing Honeybee and Dimples come home happy and tired after a good day at school, “sharing” Rusty with the local school (okay, I’m actually nervous about that), and supporting Samuel as he begins his college education.
It’s going to be quite a year and I look forward to sharing it with you as I begin my twentieth year of homeschooling and my more recent experience of having children in school.
What you are you most looking forward to this school year?
