because every blog needs a picture
and just in case anyone was wondering
how we get foot prints on the walls...
One of the reasons I started blogging was because I get a lot of e-mails about homeschooling.
I'm glad I have written this stuff down over the past few years because, after a while, it gets all smudgie in my brain.
Here are some things I have written in the past couple of years.
I'm not really qualified to tell you about anything except our own experience.
And your experience should look different.
I mean, it is for your kids/family.
So no comparing.
Here you go:
Why we started to homeschool:
David's Aspberger's Syndrom
Asperger's and Dyslexia
Books on Asperger's, sensory stuff and just my fave books on how people work.
What I used to get started...and once we started:
The first 2 things I read
Pulling together my first curriculum
What we used for 1st & 2nd grade
Random thoughts on 1st and 2nd grade
More on how I got started
More on "how do I start?"
What we used in 2nd and 4th grades
There is more that I wrote that you can see if you click on the homeschool link to the right.
Like I said, I'm not qualified to tell you what your day should look like. And some of those posts are kinda rambling. They were written to answer a question or to capture something I was thinking about at that moment.
The only thing I feel like I am qualified to talk about is freaking out.
I am good at that.
Talking about it.
You are supposed to freak out.
Every parent does.
For homeschoolers, it is just in a different catagory.
I don't fret about getting the right teacher or riding the school bus or picking the right school.
I fret about a whole other group of things.
I mean, it is about my kids
So I'm going to fret.
Fret is one of those words that when you say it enough times it seems like a non word and I think I have used it one time beyond that.
Fret. Fret. Fret.
So if you are one of the people who have e-mailed me in the past few weeks about freaking out:
congrats. You are on track.
