School Decision Time

Just over two months ago our family made a big move to a new state and new home.  Then came time for another big decision....what to do about school.  In my husband's last call we were blessed to have a wonderful Lutheran School.  That made all our schooling decisions easy for the last 8 years.  We knew that each and every day they would be growing in knowledge but more importantly their young Christian faith would be nourished.  Our new church does not have a Lutheran School and so we were faced with the decision for Public School or Home School.

Ultimately after a lot of prayer, the decision was made to go the home school route.  
And here's our why:

Nothing is more important to us than making sure our children have a foundation in Christ. So while it will mean a lot of extra work, discipline, and organization on my part; this is the route we are going.  We're committing to one year at a time and going to take things where the Lord leads us.

Our congregation and community is packed with home schooling families so we have a ton of resources on which to rely.  We also have a lot of people encouraging us and that is always helpful too!  We are getting involved in sports and homeschooling co-ops so that we will get out of the house regularly and get some exposure to extra classes and activities.  Our youngest will be going to traditional preschool too for a couple days a week.  We actually got started with Math and Language Arts a couple weeks ago so we could dive in slowly.  I will admit it has been fun and good for my brain to get back into teaching mode.  I'm especially enjoying Pre-Algebra :).
