I have always wanted to homeschool, before I had my darling children, before I got married, all the way back to when I was in school and wished for something different.
Now that I have kids of my own, and the oldest is nearing "school" age, it is time to put all my half-way plans into action, to get serious, and start planning our homeschool adventures! One of my 2011 Plans/Goals is preparing a weeks worth of lesson plans per week, not preparing them the week I'm doing them, but to prepare in advance a weeks lesson plan. I think I've done a pretty good job, seeing as it's only the third week of the year, and I've already done way more than three weeks worth of planning. I think the trouble I'm going to have, is limiting what I want to work on to not overwhelm the kids. I've found many resources on the internet that I want to utilize, and lots of blogs to read through to get ideas.
There are so many things that can be used as learning opportunities, I can't wait to share all of them with my girls.
