Our oldest son will be starting Kindergarten this year from home. Believe it or not, we researched homeschooling, did lots of prayer, and talked with many parents who both homeschool and send their kids to public school for about 2 years before we made our final decision.

We are all really excited about this opportunity for my son to learn from home. Our homeschool association here in town is great. We had our first meeting the other night and I was blown away by all the things they do to encourage socialization. That was my biggest concern - that my son would miss all the social things they do at school.

If you ask us we'll say we're taking it one year at a time, but in my husband's and my heart, our goal is to really do it until both of our children reach at least eighth grade
