While I am excited that DH and I have agreed that we are going to home school the twins (Ayden and Kathryne), I am feeling a little intimidated by it. Truth is, this is a little sad, but I am worryig about a very distant future! Keep in mind, they are only two. However we feel that home school is not school at home...it is more like a lifestyle of constant learning! So we already do some things with A and K. I know it will be a few years before we really have to worry about the Alabama requirements, but already I am nervous.
On top of that I find my mind drifting to middle and high school, and how we will set up college prep. I know I am worrying over nothing. From what I hear, as long as you (or your cover church) keeps a good transcript, colleges will be very welcoming. I hear some even PREFER home educated students. And I know ABEKA provides degrees, along with a few other programs. So all the necessary things will be covered. But it just seems like it's a mess to get organized when the time comes.
And yet, my kids are only 2....why am I already worrying? Okay, I know the answer to that. *grumbles* stupid anxiety....
I know that once we really start the home education I will calm down, and we'll find our flow. But I'm just intimidated by the future. Excited yes, but intimidated all the same. Thoughts of "will I be a good teacher?" "How will I teach them things I struggled with?" "what if I have to start working?" constantly cross my mind, even though I know there are solutions to all those problems.
So tell me ladies, was anyone else intimidated?
