A Little Scared

Summer was so much fun!

Well summer is almost done and school is just around the corner. But I'm a little scared of what lies ahead of me.  This year I'm going to be homeschooling my 7 year old son. He did very well in school last year, but he was bored and he hated getting on the bus in the morning when his sisters were staying home.

I've homeschooled my daughters now for a while and we have worked out a good system, but I'm afraid it's going to be a whole new ball game with him. First of all I know he will need a lot more individual attention (that means less writing time for me, darn!).  Secondly, his idea of a day's work consists of 6 hours figuring out all the secrets and intricacies of his newest video game. He also can't stand being wrong.  His first reaction to getting a problem wrong is to slam down the pencil and storm away. So why did I agree to this?  I guess I love challenges.... and I love having him home.

Wish me luck!



  1. Best of luck with this. I'll be interested to hear how it goes.

  2. Good luck! I know someone who homeschools six children, so it can be done.

  3. Alyssa- Thanks.

    Sarah- Thanks I'll keep ya posted.

    Alex- 6! Yikes, just having 6 kids would be too much for me!
