Monday, Scamp and I went to a friend's home for a playdate. My friend homeschools, and I wanted to ask her some questions about it since she has children around Scamp's age. Beef and I have decided to either send Scamp to a private Christian school or homeschool her. Right now with the budget, it's looking more like homeschool is the option for us.
I've been in lots of prayer over this because homeschool is a big endeavor. The decision to homeschool has come up sooner than I thought because Scamp will be four this year, and we are deciding whether to send her to preschool a couple of days a week or not. I've already been working with her on the things she'll need to know to enter kindergarten.
I've discovered many people have strong negative views about homeschool. I mention the word homeschool, and people snarl their noses and say "Doesn't she need to be around other kids?" Homeschool does not mean I lock Scamp in a closet. I'm leaving the decision up to God. What He puts on my heart is what I will do.
God started opening my eyes and making it an option in my life ever since I met Beef in college. Many of you know he and his three siblings were all homeschooled, and they are the brightest, most well-rounded people I know.
I've been researching, and the city and state I live in have great options for homeschoolers. This is an exciting yet scary endeavor, but I know God will be in control of it all.
