I have been dealing with a pretty severe bout of depression for the past month. My husband is in the military and away, but in a month we will be moving to be with him. I am seriously considering enrolling our oldest (she's 5) in public school. I know that I haven't kept up with her academic needs (she is gifted, so she's beyond the usual kindergarten stuff, otherwise keeping her challenged and engaged wouldn't be an issue). The area we will be in has good public schools and a great program for advanced kids with lots of flexibility. This has not been easy for me- I have always intended to homeschool, even before having kids. I feel guilty, but I don't want her to fall behind because of my issues (due to dh's job he isn't really able to help contribute much). Any advice would be appreciated.
