My 6 year old has gotten to the point where she wants to be around more kids her own age more often. We have them in dance class and have her in a homeschool class every week, but it seems we need more.
I know there are a lot of homeschool organizations in the area. I am looking into getting into one. It would be nice to have heads up on all the homeschool activities going on and to know some of the kids the girls know will be there. Having a sort of support when it comes to the "classroom" would be nice, too.
My husband has talked my daughter about sending her to public school. She seemed to like the idea. I am not sure how i feel. I would love to have the time to myself and for her to have time the with other kids. If there was a good program for advanced kids, I think she could benefit from that over having her at home. But, unfortunately, I haven't found anything out here that I am happy with. Then, there is my concern about kids' behavior that is tolerated in public schools I know some are better than other. I just don't like the idea of having to unteach my kids how to act, if that is even possible while being exposed to unwanted behavior all day. I also really enjoy having a flexible schedule, especially with family out of state to visit.
The nice thing is, there is no pressure for making a decision. Homeschooling seems to be working well for now. When something comes along that trips my trigger, we can always give that a go.
