To answer my own question about what makes me feel good or that we make the right decision etc. are days like we had yesterday..we just had a wonderful day at home with lots of world learning type stuff, playing scrabble and seeinmg reading and spelling and math in day to day life, making a tornado with 2 water bottles because my son got the piece he needed to do it for christmas, watching my kids discuss making lunch, then doing it and snuggling up for a family nap afterwords.
2.Things that make me doubt myself..comparring my kids to others , I saw a child at a shelter younger than my son sit down and read a chapter book, not a biggie but I have to admit a little voice was like" oh he's behind...am I doing something bad for his future?" And fearing the state looking for my report card I did not submit, hehe opps.
