DS did it! He spoke to his father about how he wanted to homeschool. He was articulate and thoughtful. At one point, he told me that his father had asked why DS wanted to homeschool and DS responded with several  things- among them that he did not want to have to keep waiting for other kids to catch up. His father responded by saying that DS better get used to that, it's part of life, and it's never going to change- he will always have to wait for other people (what the heck? who says that to a kid? can you see part of why we are divorced?). And DS told me that he responded by saying, "I know how to wait. I just choose not to." :-D I am so proud of my boy! And he was so proud of himself. And his father told him that he would agree that DS could home school for 1 year and see how it goes. And if it goes well, he will let him do it forever. DS is so happy and excited! He wants to finish out 3rd grade in his school and then it's on to homeschooling! Woohoo!

woohoo

 That's great! Children should always get a say in where & how they learn, it is their education after all!

Sounds like you are raising a very articulate young man!!  I would be very proud of him.  Good luck in your journey.
