It’s less than 2 months until we officially start the homeschool journey with Kai. We’ll be doing some preschool/kindergarten with her to see how things go. This is our test year. Our year to see if I am able to pull this off.
We chose this age ’cause we decided if it didn’t work out, at least she wouldn’t be behind the other kids her age. But, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit nervous to try this.
Still, I think it will be an exciting adventure for Kai, me, and the rest of the family.
My biggest fear is socialization. Or rather, lack thereof. I tend to be a bit on the introverted side in real life (the internet gives me amazing courage) so my biggest worry is that my tendency to withdraw in social settings will ultimately affect Kai in a negative way.
But, I’d love to know, oh blogosphere friends, do those of you homeschooling have any words of wisdom for a fledgling homeschool mom embarking on this journey? And tips for making sure she’s educated and sociable??
