Homeschooling Begins

Today we began our homeschooling journey! I am more positive than ever that this is the right decision for Clayton and for us as a family. We began the year with a tiny bit of math, some handwriting practice, and we started a week-long unit on transportation. Since Clayton is so obsessed with trucks, bikes, and go-karts, it made perfect since to start the year off with something he loved to talk about! And what made it even better was the weather---we were able to do some of our work on the porch since it's so beautiful out. Great advantage of having school at home!

Oh I wish I lived closer to you. I so would love to have Daniel homeschooled but I have no idea how to go about it. What training or anything. Would love to hear more about it.

School starts here in a few weeks and if it goes like it did last year with him being sick all the time I might freak out!

Sounds like the year is off to a good start. I love the picture of Clayton - he looks like he is really focused on his work.
