Man I have really slacked off on my blog, especially this summer!! And boy oh boy do I need it to release some of those extra thoughts and compile all the favorite recipes, crafts, etc I find into one place so I've got to get back to it! So many things have changed over the summer!! We started out this school year with virtual school this year for homeschool to try things a little differently! It was a really awesome option through K12 that allowed us to get a lot of curriculum (18 boxes) for the kids with out paying anything! Helps coach you a long the way for those that might need that extra help with online virtual teachers. It also gives the option to be able to link into the school with testing and so much more too. However as the weeks passed by and having a few more problems with the kids that needed I think a little more experience with it we decided to put them back in Public School after doing a lot of research with the schools here on post. We were very pleased with what we saw on post and how at ease the staff made us feel when we met with them and went over the needs of our children from autism to possible dyslexia. I absolutely loved homeschooling them, learning with them and having the time with them but some things I think would be much better off in the hands of someone else for us personally as a family. The possible dyslexia is a little beyond me in my opinion and I want to ensure he gets the best help. They already have him in a special reading class to help him with his problems and he is already starting to pick up in some trouble areas all because this one teacher is working well with him and his last public school he was failing because she blew him off and called him a failure! So I am very happy to see what we are seeing so far! They have been back in public school about 2 weeks and though they were hesitant to go back after their last experience they are absolutely loving it and look forward to going back every day!! I feel they are in very good hands at this school! Of course sending them back doesn't mean I have lots of free time since I still stay very busy daily babysitting! And I still teach the little ones here the basic things! So I'm still having lots of fun here!
