    Default Hello from MO

    Hello all! I'm so glad to have found this forum and all these amazing resources. We're going full time homeschooling this year after a rocky couple of years. Our at-home lessons have always been successful but public school has been moving slower and slower for DS10 and he's drifting in boredom. Anyway, it will be great to talk to more parents in the same boat.

    Welcome! Have you started homeschooling yet or is your son still in school? Is it relatively easy to start homeschooling where you are, or do you need to fill out paperwork?

    I started homeschooling my oldest when she was 8 after public school did not work out for her, and we have been homeschooling for 2.5 years now. Still figuring it out I find our plans and curricula are changing all the time.

    Welcome!

    We also started homeschooling when our kids were 7 & 8. Having homeschooled all the way through high school, NZMama is absolutely right--plans and curricula DO change all the time. One on hand it can be frustrating, but on the other--it keeps things fresh!

    We will be starting this summer when school lets out. He's been in public school so far, so we're excited for the change. We have to write a formal withdrawal and keep records of our hours of schooling every year, but I don't think there is any other formal paperwork after the withdrawal in my state. We don't need tests or licenses like some other places thankfully. We would still do them if we needed to, but it's nice to not have that pressure.
