Checking in...

Well, we have decided to homeschool Abby in the fall. So I have spent every available moment this past week reading and researching. And honestly, I am completely overwhelmed. I finally got Cathy Duffy's Top 100 Curriculum from the library and that (I think) is going to help a lot. It is amazing how much curriculum is out there - so many different philosphies. Of course, one of the best things about homeschooling is tailoring the curriculum to your child's learning styles, interests, and abilities. Unfortunately, for every person who LOVES one curriculum, there is another who couldn't stand it (because of their child's learning style, interest, and ability!) I think a lot of this will involve trial and error.

Otherwise, there isn't much to report. Danny is getting bigger and more smiley every day. The girls are all healthy and happy. Garr and I are good too! Will try to take some pictures over the weekend. We have our church Easter egg hunt in the morning, and then the girls have their first Little League practice in the afternoon! So I'm sure all have lots to write about on Sunday!

Yes- I second that, congratulations on the decision, I'm sure abby will thrive. You might want to check out the local homeschool association (I know there's one here, I'm sure there must be one there)- they might be able to help you decide which way to go- they also organize field trips and stuff! Hope you are all well!- gina
