We have homeschooled for a year and a half now. We have been pleased with the progress and work the kids have done, but are planning to re-enter the PS (a different school) next fall for a couple reasons. One is they are both very social kids (esp. my daughter) and two is if they are not enrolled in a school they are not permitted to play sports(except for soccer) after they reach the junior high level. My son plays baseball, basketball and football and was devastated to find out that he could not play his favorite, football, last year since he was not a student. My daughter plays softball and soccer but LOVES to be around people! We are very involved in our church, but she still craves the social interaction she used to have at PS. We are part of a co-op group that meets once a month so that helps some withwhat.
I guess I'm just curious if there are others planning to do what I'm doing and how you feel about it. I kind of have mixed emotions about it.
Thanks ahead of time for your thoughts!
