liscence to drive!! Scary for mom but liberating for bd#1. She did awesome, only missing 1 question on the test. It would have been a quick in and out but the school had messed up and so we had to go all the way back to school and get a letter and transcript saying she had passed the driving part of drivers ed and take it back to the bmv. Then they wanted her to verify her SS# - thankfully her dad was home and could find it. That was a miracle - he is rarely home during the day. She was so thrilled to drive her dad's bmw to school. He wasn't thrilled however! I am excited to have another driver to help around here. She just might take over grocery shopping! Hurray!!

We home schooled for 2 years using an eclectic method leaning heavily on MODG the 2nd year. The kids went back to our local parochial school 2 years ago. For many reasons we are discerning homeschooling again next fall. I would like to blog the journey in case it may help someone else. I will be once again using MODG as a sort of spine for the journey but substituting when either necessary or availability is the issue. I get very caught up in the planning and can spend hours putting together a curriculum and then life happens and it all goes out the window. I hope to have an outline for the children before school will start. I need some serious organization this time. I feel like that was one of the main hindrances last time.
Well here I go, I am not so sure about this whole blogging thing - I don't really understand it but I am excited to give it a whirl. (Good grief I sound ancient!) I went to high school in the early 80's and so all computer knowledge has been hard won by me. My goal is to not look stupid with these posts!
