No, I'm not crazy.

I'm going to start homeschooling my kids. I have thought about it a lot for the last few weeks. The more unsatisfied I am with the kids school, the more I want to do something about it. M calls me daily and asks me to pick him up, his "tummy hurts", we've done everything we can think of to "fix" it and nothing is helping.

I know I can do a great job and feel like this is the best thing for us to do. I've immersed myself in everything home school related. I have books on how to transition, books on what level they should be at, what the differnt types of techniques are.

I'm going to start Little Man as well. So we'll get all three kids going and catching up to where they should be as well as advancing in areas they love.

I'm excited and ready to go. Though we will wait until January so I can finish my finals and get everything all set up. L can't wait to start many craft projects that we just haven't had time for, as well as baking! M just wants to be home where things can be faster paced and he can wiggle from time to time ;). Little Man has no idea what is going on, haha.

There are so many resources out there now, so I think it will be much easier than it was when I was a kid. But still quite a bit of work :)

Good for you! I keep waivering back and forth between taking the homeschool plunge and not... Thankfully my kids school is pretty good, and the "hand picked" teachers I choose every year have been AWESOME!

Good luck!!! :)

Cool! We decided to do it, too, but I can't manage to get set up before next fall. I'll be checking in to see how it's going.

Wow, Meadow! I think it's great you are willing since you see the need. Good luck!!
