In a couple of days it will be our 1 month anniversary of homeschooling. I must say it has been an experience like none before. The first few days I was ready to send her back to school. We both shed some tears that first week! We started out with a workbook based curriculum, that I will not name because I'm sure it is excellent, just not for us. After the first week I started looking for a new curriculum. Kayla hated the one we were using, mainly because she is a busy, hands-on kind of learner. I hated it because she needed my help every 2 seconds and I had my own school work I was trying to do. I googled "cheap" online curriculum and I found time4learning.com. I wasn't sure about it because it sounded too good to be true. I read reviews and talked to my cousin, Stacey, who has been homeschooling forever. She checked it out and called me back and said it looked wonderful! So, I signed up and we LOVE IT!!! Kayla says she feels like she is playing a game all day, but she is learning also!! We have come a long way since that first week and I don't think I have threatened to send her back to school in the last 3 weeks. I'm sure we will still have issues, but so far, so good!
