It has been six months since we started our homeschool adventure with Jack. It has been wonderful, challenging, and a learning process for both of us. A lot has changed from my post back in November, but changed for the good.
First of all, I went back to work almost full time. I now work at daycare/ dayschool. I have done childcare and babysitting since I was 12-years-old, but never in a licensed, structured center before. It’s been a learning curve for me. I love the job and the kids make the job worthwhile. However, it is personally challenging at times since their teaching/care philosophy doesn’t always line-up with my teaching/care beliefs. But, I have learned some great skills that I have incorporated into our homeschool, though.
So, what have I learned so far? What have I changed? Let’s discuss.
I am sure every parent new to homeschool has made these mistakes and more. This is a learning process for the entire family, not the the kids. But, it has worked very well for us so far. My husband loves seeing the progress Jack has made in these six short months. He has even gotten in on it by taking him to Free Forest School classes around the Portland Area.
I have set-up his curriculum for the summer and the school year already. Even Bear is going to start some basic stuff in the Fall. I am super excited to see what path this adventure takes.
