Well, after lots of prayers and talks with Sammi, we’ve come to the decision to start Home schooling after Christmas break via Connections Academy. You can check out the link on the sidebar, but briefly, it is an online public charter school. Complete with all the materials, computer, and learning support. We’ll be adding our own Bible curriculum in a month or so, but for now we’ll get into a regular routine and see how things go. Please pray for us during this transition!
For those that don’t know, we absolutely LOVE the elementary school that Chrissy attends, so she’ll be staying there until next year. We made the decision to send Sammi to a Christian Academy in lieu of the Public middle school this year. We felt that 5th grade was too young to send her to middle school and be exposed to way too many adult issues at too young of an age. That said…we LOVE her school that she is finishing up at, but due to some adjustment issues on Sammi’s part and some other family issues, we decided that homeschooling would be the best for her this year. Chrissy has expressed interest in going to the academy next year, but we will see what the Lord has planned when the time comes.
I’ll keep you all posted on what is happening on the homeschool front!
