Thoughts to You (But Mostly Myself) on Home Schooling

This week's weather reminds me of why I live in Florida. ONLY this week, mind you! It has been so stinkin' hot here. It's October for crying out loud. But this week has brought about morning weather that makes you want to sing. It also brings (or seems to anyway) the best out in my youngest student!

This year has been a roller coaster with the thoughts in my head of , "should I or should I not home school?" ADHD, sensory integration disfunction and attachment issues due to substance exposure in utero makes my littlest spin, literally, and my head spin, figuratively. Screaming fits, defiance and an extremely strong will make me question whether we have made the right choice to home school her.

Then we have days like this that speak for itself. My beauty who is normally distracted beyond all compare finds the ability to function quite normally outside surrounded by her bunny friends with her favorite story playing on her cd player. And school was done by 1 p.m. instead of 5 p.m. There were no screaming temper tantrums and life was beautiful.

So I remind myself, "These are some of the reasons I choose to home school. What memories are being made! What invaluable resources for my crazy princess!"

Unconventional, you say?
