Large Family= HSing??
 
Just curious how many mamas of many HS on here? Seems to be assumed that if you have a lot of kids, then you automatically HS. Do we fit the sterotype?

We have 4, and pg with #5, and homeschool them all.

I am HSing my 6th grader. I have a 5th grader in elem. school. My 5 year old starts Kindergarten in the fall. He will go to elem school as well. We have decided that it is best for our children to school at the public school until middle school and then we will reevaluate. My older 2 may go to the magnet arts/drama school for 2009-2010 year. If they don't, then we will use K12 Virtual again. I enjoy homeschooling, but I don't have the time or patience to HS them all. (plus our elem. school is a really good school, I have had no issues with them at all)

:thumbsup:

We have 5 children and have HS for the past 5 yrs. We have a 7th grader, 4th grader, a 2nd grader, a pre-schooler, and our youngest is just 15 mos. There are days that are more difficult than others, but I wouldn`t change what we are doing for the world. This is our 2nd yr. using Sonlight curriculum.

Re-frame the idea behind the question and you'll get a very clear view as to why that is... People who tend to allow God to control an area as frightening as family size, tend to be the ones who also have strong beliefs that they want to pass onto their children and so they homeschool. It really does go with the territory as very few people who are not deeply faithful will have 6-10 children these days. We had our eighth last year and we do homeschool. :hugs:
