I know I have mentioned homeschooling before, here and here . And I haven't regretted my decision at all. I'm absolutely amazed at how far Kristopher has come in four short months. Most of you know that I am only homeschooling Kris. I had to pull him out mid year because his placement just was not right for him. Johnny still attends public school. There has been some things at school that I am not thrilled with. I have toyed with the idea of private school for Johnny since 1st grade. He's in 3rd this year. A few recents events have sealed the deal for private school.
I have found a very small private school that has a "homeschool" program. Very small as in, it's k-8th grade and there are 42 kids! It's a magical place. The class size is usually 6-8 children. You can send your child 1, 2 or 3 days and homeschool them the other days. Well, they are both going for a "visit" tomorrow! I am thrilled, excited, nervous, happy, afraid of the unknown and a million other emotions. Johnny told me today "Mom, I'm so excited to go to school with Kris tomorrow, I miss him SO much everyday" This literally melted me! He is a wonderful child with a BIG heart. And the bond they share as twins is unbelievable. The fact is, they haven't gone to school together since Kindergarten. Because none of the placements have been right for Kris. I know this has been a lot for Johnny to process as well.
I am PRAYING this works for them. I am happy to continue homeschooling, but it would be SO nice for them to share this experience together there. I just want to see my boys happy, safe and learning! Hopefully I will have an update tomorrow afternoon!
