Midway through our 7th year of homeschooling! How about you?

So, we are in January 2015 and that means we are midway through our 7th year of homeschooling!
How is that possible?
We started this for 5th and 6th grade, using Time4Learning and we have stuck with it!
When I looked up the 5th grade curriculum and 6th grade currirculum, I knew it was a good start for us.
My boys started from day one and it just clicked for us.

7 years later, we are still here!
They now have high school levels and OMG!
The biology teacher is the current favorite for my boys. He cracks them up and they are learning.
Mom is happy that she doesn't have to find and cobble together stuff.
Nope, 5 classes online and they are smart as whips!

When we started out, I put them in the same grades that they had been in public school. Older son started only 6 weeks into 6th grade so he really had not learned anything yet. Younger son was midyear when we pulled him and he started at the beginning of 5th grade. He was shocked that he had not been taught much of what was required. So was I.

We walked away from public school and never looked back.
My boys have flourished! They do not lack socialization. They are at ease talking to both adults and kids.
They can handle almost any conversation thrown at them.
Homeschooling was the best decision we ever made!

Our only regret is that we did not do it sooner.
Have you been considering homeschooling your child? Just pulled them and don't know where to start?
Well, you have come to the right place! Check out all my posts and I bet you will get LOTS of answers!

Happy Homeschooling!
