I know there are a few other homeschooling families on this ddc! this will be my first time homeschooling with a little baby around. We started homeschooling our boys about 2 years ago and they are now almost 6 and 8.
for those of you that have done it how was the transition? was it easier/harder than you expected? did everything just flow into place (this is obviously what i'm hoping for!)?
We are pretty liberal homeschoolers, do use a curriculum but mostly are child led learners and aren't too hard core about age group standards or grade level expectancies. we are part of a distance learning program and are 'holding back' our what would be third grader next year so he doesn't have to take standardized testing for another year. really this is only in the eyes of the state, as we don't care waht grade level he is in and he doesn't even put any weight on the issue of grade level himself. we will keep learning/teaching to what ever stage he is ready for.
i'm excited to hear what other families have/are planning to do with their homeschooling life after the new LO arrives. My DH is nervous it will be 'too much' for me (i am the sole homeschooling parent) and I'm hoping to prove him wrong.
