So I'm pretty sure I will be continuing to homeschool the kids next year. We had planned to send them to a part-time private school, but some things have changed. DH was fine with them being home another year but he did ask me to do something different and go with a new ISP or charter homeschool program. Sooo I chose a new charter school and the kids will be taking classes at their learning center. Bryce 2 days a week, and Marlie and Blake only one day per week. I'm a little nervous about the whole being accountable to an EF (educational facilitator) instead of accountable to myself, for the work they've completed. I'm planning to hire a babysitter to watch Blake on Wednesday mornings, so Mason and I can have some time out by ourselves to run errands and play. I'm also getting a housecleaner so that I can stay focused on the kids and not feel completely overwhelmed by the house. I hope this works (babysitter and housecleaner), otherwise dh is going to insist that the kids go to full-time school. It's just so hard for me to school 3 older kids and have a toddler. We seriously have had the worst school year ever. Hopefully this will help and i can feel like I'm back on top of the homeschooling again. Now I need to figure out History and Science for an 8th grader, 5th grader and 2nd grader. I have most everything else figured out already.
