A New Year and a ...New School?

No, we're not moving. Yes, it's the middle of the year. We have decided to homeschool Steven for the rest of the year. Or, kinda homeschool him. :) We are transferring him to Nevada Virtual Academy, which utilizes the awesome K-12 curriculum, but is still considered "public school".

This isn't a decision that we entered into lightly. Our daughter started disliking school in the 7th grade, and it just went downhill from there. Steven has been asking for quite a while to be homeschooled, but his grades are now starting to slip, so we did a lot of soul searching and question asking, and finally made the decision.

And now I'm excited about it. Is that weird?

So, in addition to writing, now I get to teach as well. It really is a new year!

Wow. How is the homeschooling going? I have a friend that does that I have to give her (an you) alot of credit. It takes alot and you deserve a pat on the back.
