What I learned this year:
~Homeschooling high school is not as scary as I imagined it would be
~It is excellent practice for college
~Christian songs from iTunes make great rewards for a diligent school week and a great attitude (for only 99 cents!)
~Teaching Textbooks is my mathematical lifesaver!
~Sonlight's Core 100 is great if you have a kid who loves a schedule and wants to work on their own and LOVES reading
~I am spoiled because I have a highly self motivated high school student to practice on ; )
~Co-op type classes aren't for us right now
~Online courses from the school district offer great electives but are MAJORLY time consuming. Never take more than one of those classes at a time
~If a free language course from the public library IS ever offered online again, print out all the tests because you never know when that language course company will cancel the library's contract without notifying any students and you will be left high and dry with no records to show for the work accomplished
~Free time is precious and spent wisely
~I wouldn't trade these years with my teen for anything!
