Re: How long have you homeschooled? And how old are your kids?

9 years. We have homeschooled from the beginning and my oldest is just finishing 8th grade. I also have a 4th grader, 1st grader, and pre-schooler.

Re: How long have you homeschooled? And how old are your kids?

I have 5 dc, working on #6. I have ds 12 1/2, dd 10, ds 7, dd almost 6, and dd 1. I've been homeschooling for about 7 years.

And to the pp, Vivian, there are days when I feel like I'm not very good at it either (and I was a teacher). I think we all have days like that. Just remember your dc are still young and you've been at it a year. It takes time to find your rhythm. We have years where I feel like we've gotten a lot accomplished and years where I wonder what in the world we've done. They have always learned way more than I thought they would. Hang in there.

My kids are 11 (6th grade), 9 (3rd), 7 (1st), 4, and 1. Other than my oldest son's kindergarten year when we used an online virtual academy, we've homeschooled the whole way. I never thought I'd end up homeschooling my kids--we're not anti-school or anything, but we took it year by year and it's ended up being a great lifestyle for us (most days :-) so we continue!

I have a 4th, 2nd, and 2 in K. We've been hsing for about a month. It's been a bit challenging to pick up in the middle of the year but there were a couple things I could foresee as becoming issues soon so I pulled them out of ps. The plan was to start this coming fall.

I've hs since the beginning and have a 3rd and 2nd grader with 2 preschoolers a toddler and a new baby due in July. Next year will be crazy for us. We are extremely relaxed right now and hoping our kids are not behind. They are both reading great so that eases my mind a little.
