This is a homeschool post.
So this year has gone okay so far. I could have and probably should have done a lot of things differently. We’ve had lots of stinky days. We’ve had lots of days that I thought I was doing more harm than good. But we’ve also had some really great days. We’ve spent a lot of time together this school year that we otherwise would have. I definitely don’t regret our decision to homeschool Jackson this year. I have learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t.
But now the problem I’m facing is when do we send him back to public school. We know we’re homeschooling next year for 3rd grade. I feel about 97% sure that I don’t want to do this through high school. And I know that I don’t have to make the decision now and I know that we need to think about it and pray about it and all that stuff. But I know that some of you reading have had kids go through Rasco and LJI and if that’s you, I would really like your input. That doesn’t mean that I’m necessarily going to take your advice but I would like to hear what you have to say. I don’t know if it would be better to send Jack back to public school when he starts Rasco or when he starts LJI. And if he’s going to go to Rasco then maybe I should send him back in 4th grade so he can make some friends before I throw him to the wolves at Rasco.
So what are your thoughts? And if you are 100% anti-homeschooling (like I used to be) then try to keep an open mind.
