Hi

I'm seriously exploring homeschooling next year for Lucy. She will be in 7th grade. I've been thinking about it for a couple of years now but it really wasn't on option because both Dh & I work. But we may have found a way for next year.

I'm looking for curriculum. Partically one where there is onlife videos of teachers teaching subjects - if that exists (fingers crossed). Lucy has vision issues and it would be better if she could have audio learning vs having to read everything. The reason I want to home school is because of her vision problems.

Are you going to home school Noah as well? We received the letter from the district last week for the gifted testing. Not sure what we will do if EJ doesn't get into the magnet at Campi.

No I will continue to send Noah to school. He is doing fine in public school.
