I can't say that it has been any busier around here, same amount of house work, chores, kids, husband, dog, pig, chickens, but, I seem to have been overwhelmed and not on my computer as much. I have missed you all. It must be the heat here in the South.
Last week I went to the school Superintendent's office in our closest town to turn in my homeschool form. I was a little worried because I had heard accounts of them not being very nice to homeschoolers. But, our first visit there went great.
As soon as the lady at the desk turned around, my 5-year-old Little Buckaroo held out his hand and introduced himself. He had her wrapped immediately. Then, she saw Littlest Buckaroo's big blue eyes and melted. She was more than helpful and courteous and all my apprehension went out the window. I had heard that when it is your first year to homeschool that the superintendent might want to meet with you. It is not required by law that you do this, but I was more than willing. I am more than happy to help break down the stereotype that homeschooled children are unsocialized, weird kids. I did not have to meet with the Superintendent, he was not there and the nice lady said it was not necessary.
Now comes the hard part, I actually have to get ready to begin homeschooling Little Buckaroo. I have some various curriculum's and new school supplies, so I guess I just need to decide on the start day (which of course will be a big first day of school party). It' s the after the party stuff that has me a little scared.
Watch out Kindergarten, here we come!
