Jump in! Summer is the time that a lot of people make the decision to start or end homeschooling. Do you have questions or concerns? Just want to say hello? Have little ones that are too young for school? Come on in!

I lurk. (But you knew that already.) I would LOVE to homeschool, but looks like we'll be dealing with public school for a while since we'll be fostering.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

I lurk here. HI! DS is only 20 months. DH is active duty air force (has another 14 years left). After reading more and more stories on a military wife forum I'm on the more I don't want to rip DS out of school and put him in new schools due to movie just strictly because of the academics. So many parents complain about the basics their kids miss out on by all the moving and different distracts doing things at different times. I'm really leaning towards homeschooling so that learning is consistent. Plus it would be wonderful to take vacations when DH can get leave (which is always harder in the summer) and to move during the "off season."

You must have read my mind. I was just about to post an intro with lots of questions. Hope you don't mind. Don't want to steal this thread so I'll go do that now.

Augie... I figured you'd have to go through PS with fosters, but I bet you'll probably do some afterschooling, especially if kids are behind or ahead.

I agree... it would make transitions easier than moving from school to school in military style!

And, welcome, Audrey! I already responded to your other post.

Wahoo, a few new faces and some luker-bees! Nice to see you! I haven't been around in a while, things stay busy, but it's planning season and the more input the better.

Much thanks to Alethia for my beautiful siggie and tags!!

I know you've been lurking. I can't forget you, because you and your dh share the same names (and spellings) that we do! ... and I like Disney.

I'm still lurking but since we're finally going to start in the fall, I hope to be more active at that point. Going to my very first Homeschool Expo in Atlanta next weekend!
