The last few weeks I have been making my list and checking it twice (or three or four times!) as we prepare to home school our daughter. It's one of those things that we've been talking about for so long that all of the sudden reality hit and I realized that we really are about to start this journey very soon! It kind of snuck up on me, despite how prepared I am! I have had most of my curriculum chosen and here at home for a few months now, but finally sat down to "take it all in" the other week in order to refresh myself with everything. It's an exciting (and intimidating) adventure we're embarking on. I find so many great resources and guides out there that I have to remind myself that I have 12 years to teach my daughter all these things and I certainly don't have to pack it all into a Kindergartner's schedule! Any way, we should be ready to start things in a couple weeks despite our "school room" not being finished. There's lots of work that needs to be done in there and it may take awhile, but that's ok. I will have to share pictures of that once we are officially working in our school room and not just the kitchen table.
