Thankful day 12

I am thankful my school aged children are doing well in school. It was a hard decision to give up most control of their education and send them to public school. Both J. and I had many fears. But so far, they are having fun, making good friends, and learning a lot! L. got 4 A's and 2 B's on his report card. This is great news, and an encouragement to let me know I did a good job teaching him at home. C. and K. have their conferences in a few weeks, and I have no idea about their grading system. I know that they both struggle in their own areas, but they are getting caught up quickly. It is so nice to have some time to just spend with E. and S. I think it is helping them both to have mama and papa focus their attention on them while the big kids are in school.

So glad that things are going well for the kids. That was a tough decision to make. While we have primarily homeschooled our kids for the past 19 years ... every year we look at our situation, and look at the needs of each child. Most of our older children spent some time in "regular school" classrooms over the years.
