I'm just wanting to get a feel for how long you ladies have been homeschooling.  I have 3 kids and we have been homeschooling since the oldest was born (10 3/4 years).  wink mini  We are moving into our 4th year of official schooling.  Keeping records, having the kids answer the age old questions "What grade are you in?" and "What school do you go to?"  The law in our state (ID) says that 7 is the age for starting school, so that's when we officially started.

What have you found most challenging and what have you found most rewarding?

For me the most rewarding thing is to be able to be with my kids all the time and watch them mature and learn and become passionate about what they love.

The most challenging thing for me has been dealing with my son's attitude about school.  Especially since he LOVES learning.  It's getting better, but some days are still a fight.

My son is almost 3.5 years, and we have been homeschooling since the get go.  Since he's Preschool age, we don't have to keep any offical records for now.  And we won't until he turns 5.  But I still consider myself a homeschooling mama

We pulled her out 4 months ago. She was getting bored with school and they said they wouldn't bump her a grade

This coming up school year will be our 5th year homeschooling. It sure does not seem like it though.

 weve been homeschooling for 27 years

most rewarding- is looking back at how the kids have grown in there personal lives, what they are like now, being able to teach them, looking at the choice they have made growing up! watching them grow up and being able to be there the whole time! i sure miss those younger years!

challenging- keeping ahead of them in math!!!
