I'm putting a lot of thought into Emma's schooling options this week. She will be starting Kindergarten in the fall so it's time to get serious about this.
Brian's job this week is to arrange for tours of two public schools. One is the local "regular" one, and the other is a magnate school for the arts.
My job this week is to research home schooling options. A bit of background: I was home schooled from 2nd - 9th grades, and although I had a good experience with it, I SWORE I would never home school my kids. I also swore I would never live in Idaho, so shows what I know.
I have a lot of research to do because frankly the idea of home schooling terrifies me. I think in order to be successful at it I would need to have a good support group and the right curriculum. I know of a home school co-op near us where kids attend classes at a church two days a week, then the parents teach at home the other three days. I am excited to find out more about that.
As far as Emma is concerned, she just wants to ride a bus. Basically she will have achieved all she needs to achieve by stepping on a large yellow bus. Hmm, maybe I could just rent one for an afternoon?
