We pulled our daughters from public school before school started last year, and started homeschooling them and their younger brother. So we've got a (school) year of experience now. I want a stricter schedule this year. But a more forgiving one as well... Trust me, it makes sense to me. There are certain things that I've tried that just do not work for them. And there are others that they really enjoy and we need much more of!
So I have my new planner, a wonderful friend with several years of experience to lean on for advice, my own year of experience, a couple library cards, and the internet. Let the planning begin!
