Loads of things contributed to our switch. I am honestly, sincerely, thankful to my daughter’s school. She had some lovely teachers and an amazing counselor. You know how it is, educators are just fighting a losing battle on an empty stomach. They have no backup and they are outnumbered! It was not a great year.
So, we took this opportunity to actively evaluate our lives and make a decision that fit our circumstances. For us this is right. At least, this is right, right now.
I am confident that our homeschooling/unschooling experience will strengthen our family and our bonds with the community in ways we never imagined. Right now, we have all the potential in the world to succeed. The sky is the limit and we are in control.
And as for fixing the schools… that is not my job. My job is to help our daughter become healthy, strong, smart, and, above all, kind. So that’s what I’m going to do… in my own way. Follow along if you’d like.
