Jeremy and I have discussed for the past year and a half or so about homeschooling Henry. I'm not going to get into our reasoning right now, as that could be an entire post on it's own, but more or less about my heart's uneasiness about such a big decision.
Today Henry and I are starting a 'pre-school' type of regimen that I have been working on for awhile now. Each week we will go through one letter and number and pair that with books, songs, trips, movies, etc... pretty much we will have a 'theme' of the week and stick to it all week long. I'm going to see how this goes, if I can stick to a certain schedule and successfully teach Henry a few things on my own.
We have prayerfully considered our options and we feel as if homeschooling is best for us. However, we are also considering 'sending' him to a fellow homeschooling mom's home for school. I know that sounds a lot like sending him to public school, but the curriculum would be quite different and we feel like his life would be enriched by a different sort of learning experience guided by what we feel are essential lesson plans that include Biblical teachings and community service.
So pray for me today as we start on this journey. In a few years when it comes time for 'real' school, Henry may just end up going to public school. We don't know. We just know at this season of life, right now, our heart's are pulling us in this direction.
