((thanks)) nothing against anyone else, I just want those who have experience on this one though.
This is my first year hs our kids, and I feel my family is a mix of those who feel it is "ok" and those who think it is kind of insane. I guess this should not bother me but it does.
Thn I have days like today, when learning seemed to go SO nicely, but we met with my Mother in law for something, and the kida are fighting and embarassing me :'/
I mean if they think I am not capable, maybe I'm not,you know?

I agree, your kids will fight no matter, and they are bound to embarrass you once in a while. I wouldn't worry too much about the family that falls on the "thinks your insane" side, I know a lot of my husband's family thought I was crazy when we pulled out kids out of public school. My MIL's voiced concern was that I was not "qualified" to teach the girls - I have subbed for years and now teach preschool, but I don't have a degree so in her eyes I'm just not good enough. I have to keep reminding myself that my kids are learning - a lot more than in public school - and that we learning about homeschooling together. Work on the things you see as issues and don't worry about what others think, you are doing this for your kids, not them. Good luck!
