B and I have been debating on whether to send J to a school this year. Really debating. There's a place in town, actually at our church, that has a part school part home school environment. He'd be there two days a week and home the rest, with the same curriculum, same stuff. It would give him the opportunity to get the education that a place with (almost) limitless resources, many brainstorms, and the collective ideas of a bunch of cute little kids, that he can't get at home. We've asked him if he wants to go, and he says, "Well it's your choice." LOL We had to dig a little deeper, but, yes, he wants to go. Actually he talked about going to school five days a week until we told him he wouldn't get to do the math he WANTS to do. Whatever happened to wanting to do what we do? He talked about that. About how he would have to do more reading at school, which is the point. Actually the reading part we'd still do at home, he'd be going for math and science and some extracurricular activities. the decision hasn't been made. We're still debating pros and cons. It is definently on our minds at this point!
