    Expanding!

    We're in year three, formally, officially. Going by what's actually happening, it's more like year 4, but splitting hairs, so no big. ^_^

    We have no co-op, we have no real supports, and the only professionals we've seen are homeschool-hostile, so it's been interesting. However, I'm in a place where I'm basically chucking curricula at my kid to see what sticks. We go through a ridiculous amount of material each year, and are changing things up to work around the February blahs, hockey season, and DH's work schedule. We're technically on an extended spring break right now, but since Mad Natter has just gotten over the chicken pox, it's all considered "good" by the pearl-clutching folks who think he needs to be doing school at the same time as the PS kids.

    Our weeks now run W/Th/F/Sa, and we're setting up to have our year run from April to November, with 'add on' days 2x/week past that point as needed. We're learning a ton as we go, from how fast Mad Natter learns, to just what he's fighting through to do it, and we're still trying to find something that doesn't end in complaining about how often we have school days - I suspect this will be a battle until the end of time, honestly. XD

    We're nearing the end of our 2nd year of homeschooling. So far, so good!

    I think we are at 7. I just had to google "What grade are 12 year olds in" to get an idea! My 12 year old son was to start K when we decided to pull his sister's and to keep him home as well.
    Our style is mostly eclectic, child-led and extremely relaxed.
    Curriculum varies year by year and day by day.

    Girls: 17, 15, 2
    Boys: 12, 10, 4
