 sweet...and when is the baby due?stork

Quoting Donna.June: They like it. They are 8, 6.5., 5, 3.5, and 1.5. With one more on the way :)
Quoting shadenn766:

 seems like its working out pretty well for you guys...do the kids like it?, and how old are they?

Quoting Donna.June: Dh and I have several reasons why we chose to homeschool. We both went to and graduated from public school. Of course, safety is a concern. But most of it is we don't agree with the way education is going. Texas doesn't follow common core, but there is still a lot that is skipped. Our typical day starts at 8. Breakfast, chores, and getting ready for the day. We don't start our lessons until noon when dd5 is napping. Otherwise, she bugs her sisters. Lol. We do math and reading Sunday-Wednesday and a different subject each day. Thursday, Friday, and every other Saturday is our weekend. We visit the library Monday and Tuesdays. Mondays is when the kids club meets to do arts & crafts, science experiments, or build with legos. Tuesdays is storytime, except they are told in ASL, Chinese, or Spanish.
