Homeschooling Adventure!

We are officially a homeschooling family. I never would have thought that I would be a homeschooling mom! But this is what the Lord has orchestrated for our family for this year and I am so thankful that He did! Not because it is easy, because it is not. And not because we hate the public school system, because we don't. We simply think it is what is best for our family right now. One of the best things about this homeschooling adventure is the support from our local charter school! Valley Oaks Charter School provides Reese the opportunity to go to school one day a week to take Enrichment classes! This quarter Reese is taking Creepy Crawlers, Campfire Circle, Music and Farm Warriors! Her school is equipped with a farm that has goats, sheep, horses, turkeys, chickens and (her favorite) rabbits. She has wonderful teachers and gets to be in class with many of her friends from church.We are soo thankful for the school and for the privilege of homeschooling her.

Reese's first day of Enrichment classes! She was so excited to go to "real" school and use her princess backpack that her daddy bought her!

In line at Valley Oaks with Jaden and Luke! I am so excited to share all the ways we learn and grow as a family through this experience! Stay tuned:)

Oh my, Reese is so big! She looks so cute with her little backpack. I miss you Staci and I really hope to see you soon. It's been just about 2 years since we visited Bako (not counting the time we stop to eat there on a way home from a trip).

Love ya - Cheryl = )

I'm glad to see you up and running with your blog. I haven't seen pics of Dax since he was, well like you said, 2 weeks old! It's so hard to believe that our babies are a year old already...well, mine as of the 16th and yours soon. Yay for homeschooling...that's great! It sounds like you have a neat set-up with the charter school. I'm homeschooling MWF with my boys and they go to preschool TTH. We're still on the fence about Kinder for Aden next year...homeschool or the Christian school where Daniel works? We'll see. Good to "see" you!

I'm so curious to hear about homeschooling... We will be embarking on schooling adventures not too long for now, and it is great to hear about what our friends are already doing. Love you, Lauren

So proud of your dedication to homeschooling, sister. You are such an inspiration to me.
