We are now 10 weeks into our new adventure. In the beginning there was definitely a learning curve, for Hudson and I both. But now we've settled into a groove and I really look forward to our homeschool days. He goes to school all day on Monday and Wednesday. His teacher is great and his class has only 15 kids which I love. I volunteer every other week and have loved getting to see him in class. On our homeschool days we try to sit down around 8 am to start our school. We have 5 subjects (right now) and have work to do in every subject on our homeschool days (Tuesday and Thursday). Depending on what we have to do (and our attention span) we are usually done by 10. I had a picture in my mind of what homeschool would look like, I would have a room and desks and be a teacher... but for now, it works well for us to work at the kitchen table because I can keep an eye on brother and it just works for us.
All of that to say, something different works for everyone. And I am really glad this is the route we chose and it works really well for us!
