I picked 6 # of green, yellow, purple beans today and want to make some good eats.  What are your favorite way to serve 'em.  We usually just eat them raw, but I'd like to get crazy and cook them up.   I also would love recipes for other kinds of beans.  Kidney, black, pinto, and garbonzo are our favorites and I have gotten a bit bored with how I made them, so send recipes my way!!    Thanks

We live in a "great district" and still homeschool because I fell that is what is best for my family now.  However, it is real comfort knowing that if or we (or our children) decide to go to school  they would end up with a good education.  You could always HS in the beginning then send them.  Do what you feel is right in your heart.  As parents we must listen to our instincts, and those instincts may change with time and experience.  Good luck with your journey.
Do you "need" to go through the charter school or are you choosing to go through the charter school?  If you decide not to go with the charter you would have much more flexibility.  I know cost is an issue for some people and that many like having the lessons all planned out, but if it's not working it's not working.  Sometimes if the material is boring, (or even to hard) I know my kids will react by refusing to do anything.  We then take time off of whatever is causing...
Look and see if your library subscribes to Mango Language Learning.  It is all on-line and free.  Our ds likes it much better than Rosetta Stone (which is bummer since we own it)..
