Welcome to the homeschooling board! Glad to have you. Prepare to be overwhelmed. Don't worry... you'll catch on quickly. Ask all the questions you want. Nothing is too silly or has been asked too many times.

You guys are too sweet!

I'm in central, KY - Lexington to be exact.

I just started working from home 32 hours a week. I should add that I carry our benefits, as my husband owns his own business. The business is going well for him and he's actually been able to open several branches in only a year's time. Problem is - I'm having to hire a sitter the full 32 hours I'm in the house working because 1- I can't work with the 1yr and 3.5yr old girls under foot and 2- dh is working something like 70 hours a week! I envisioned myself working at night when he got home from work and he'd have the girls...but that would put me working until the wee hours of the morning, only to get up with the girls again at 7:30a. I'm feeling led to quit my job and homeschool - as I can't find a preschool that isn't full AND actually does something with their 3 year old class. I've had two preschools in town that I was interested in tell me "Oh 3 year olds we focus on socialization only. We don't do the alphabet at all." I'm not one to push my kids unecessarily, but due to no credit of my own her previous childcare has taught her how to write her name and recognize and write many other letters. She knows some of their sounds and recognizes and writes most numbers. I hate for her to have a year where she never even sees the alphabet and feel like we'd sort of be going backwards, so to speak.

She loves reading and we're in the Imagination Library Club where we get a free book in the mail once a month until she's five. WOW..love it! Anywho...she also really LOVES arts and crafts.

I'm trying to decide what to do - quit my job? Or try to squeeze homeschooling into an already busy schedule. *shrugs*
Thank you, JaidynsMum for my awesome siggy!

BTDT. I chose to quit my WAH job and homeschool full time. I just started a new venture... selling Barefoot Books ... so hopefully that'll be some easy money (easy, meaning easy compared to the hectic schedule I used to keep... this would be only book fairs, etc., so I'd mostly be working one or two days a month for the same money as before).
