Zero support from husband and family... Year two
Last year was our 1st yr homeschooling. My dh was very against it, and other family members were, too.
My mom even talked me out of buying curriculum (except for Saxon math) since she was sure I'd go back to public schooling the kids after a month.
I made up my own science and English curriculum from internet finds, and going with what the kids were interested in. History, that was up to the kids. Once we spent 5 hours mummifying a Barbie doll and making a sarcophagus out of an old spaghetti box. It. Was. AWESOME!
But now we are starting year 2. I WILL buy boxed curriculum since I liked having that all done for me in math last year. It kept me less frazzled. Im more confident, however, my mom says she thinks the kids should be in public school, my mil asked, "isn't the youngest going to kindergarten?!? What, you're going to homeschool ANOTHER year?!?" And dh, well, he hates homeschooling all together.
I have NO support from family. I do belong to a homeschool group that meets 1x a month and the kids do classical convo. 1xa week, so I have friend support.
Anyone else in this bind? I thought one successful year of hs would convert them all! Dd started an instrument, won the science fair, went on field trips, is ahead in math, and most importantly learned to love reading.
