Today begins our first day of homeschooling as a complete family. For a number of reasons our oldest is now home, continuing 2nd grade in a new way. This is not the path I imagined we'd walk when I first became a mother or a teacher, but it's the direction the last eight years has gradually pointed toward. We are so excited to be beginning.
The stories and resources I've found online have made homeschooling feel possible. I don't have friends that are homeschooling. I wasn't homeschooled. This is new terrain for us, and yet I don't feel alone. I'm so thankful for the online homeschooling community. A community that is constantly growing!
So it only seems fitting on our first day home to show you this...
