Samuel and Micah are excited. Abraham is aprehensive, mostly about not having as much socializing available to him everyday--all day. It will be a challenge, but I am looking forward to spending more time with the boys and getting to see them learn. We decided to use The Well Trained Mind model of classical education. I am also excited to learn along with the kids. There many things I didn't learn over the course of my public education and my unfortunately shortened, unfinished college education. One day I'll go back, college was fun! We are not in this to get our kids ahead of schedule or keep them completely protected from the world. For awhile I thought about afterschooling, but by the time the kids got home they didn't want to sit still any longer and needed the time to get outside and play.
Right now I am trying to decide on curriculum. It's hard because there is so much good and interesting stuff out there. I am currently trying to figure out language arts. I think that science will be just as hard to decide on because that is the main subject the kids will want to do.
So if you want to tell me I'm crazy, that's fine, but it won't change my mind.
