Did you know that Blair from Facts of Life home schools her kids?? No, I haven't been stalking her since Facts of Life went off the air but I recently ran across a great book written by her all about home schooling and she has a website about it too.
I know you think I've lost it and I agree with you. Feel free to tune out now if you think I am crazy. I can't believe we are seriously considering this. I've been doing tons of research and the more I read the more I like about it. I think my organized structured self would be in heaven getting prepared for "school" but I fear that I would lose my sanity once it actually came to teaching and I fear that the kids would miss the social life that comes with regular school. I think there would be a lot of positive things to come out of it for our family though. This economy crap scares me and a year or two without tuition would be so nice. It would also be nice to not have to be somewhere every morning and to not have to remember to dress my kid as a princess or a wacky tourist or send an empty coffee container (especially since we don't drink coffee) or collect 121 things that start with the letter "B" or send a check for this fundraiser or that fundraiser or drive on a field trip every other afternoon. Don't get me wrong...I love the teachers for making learning fun...I just can't keep track of it all!
Are there any home schoolers reading this??? I'd love to hear from you. I don't know a single soul who actually home schools. I want to know the bad stuff that the books and the websites don't tell you.
I'll be posting PaperDoll Pics soon and I'm thinking about a giveaway or a special. BTW, check out the giveaway at Lollielicious.
