Homeschool. Wild. Bizarre. Shoot me. Help me. I'm thinking of homeschooling. We're doing a trial right now. What on earth am I thinking?! I'm not happy with their school right now. It's overly focused on digital exploration and not at all focused enough on the crystallizing of actual knowledge. Like math facts... or sentence structure... Oh well. So- this Christmas break we are doing a "trial". The children were super excited. Me? I'm overwhelmed. I feel like in order to effectively trial this I need a really clear agenda which I have none. I'm basically going on what I think they are learning right now. And this is what it looks like so far...
Catholic Icing. Her advent book is the bestest ever. I ordered it after the 2nd Sunday of Advent. (I told you I was slacker mom) and found it to be such a wonderful security blanket to get me through my hyper charged expectations of what this season should be for my children and for me and for my husband. She walks you through the planning stages of everything without turning you into a type A wannabe. She also keeps your realities in check. I love that she makes a case for slice and bake cookies and instant mashed potatoes. Anyhow, I just really recommend this booklet for next year.
