We are beset with the responsibility as parents to weigh our options for our children’s education… Now it’s my turn to face those very possibilities. My little boy just turned five last month… and I must decide if this year is his very first for school, or if I should wait until next year. Which school? That is another serious question. Homeschool is yet another option. I was homeschooled myself, through the 4th grade on and all through high school. There are both pros and cons to homeschooling, but I personally believe there are some valid positives… I’ll be homeschooling Lucien for his first year, as a sort of experimental trial to see if it works for the both of us. We chose K-12 to guide us along the way… which is both a little scary and exciting. We’ve also enrolled him in some new activities, such as taekwondo (which he’s THRILLED over) and we hope for some piano or classical music training soon. As I’m writing this, it’s easy to feel a little heavy… I’m here already? This time came quicker than I could have ever imagined.
