Hi; I hope I can find someone who can relate to this. We just moved to our new house in the country, on a 3 acre farm. We feel very inclined to unschool, and I had been dreaming about this moment for years, yet these few days have been very dissapointing. I am home all the time with my 3 yo. son (he'll be 4 in September) and I feel very isolated most of the time.
I am eager to homeschool, and feel inspired by such a beautiful place and the simple life, but also feel guilty because he only gets to see my face all the time; dh gets home after 5 pm so its just ds and me. How can I keep the motivation to homeschool without feeling that I am depriving him of socializing with other human beings (not just children)? This also makes me feel desperate for having more children (well, we really want a large family) but haven't been able to conceive and I fear my ds will be really lonely as he grows up.
Sorry about the long post.
