Parent Hacks admin: Fits and starts, but good ones!
Well, hello! As you may have noticed, posting last week was in fits and starts (mostly fits). Progress continues on managing my new schedule as a work-at-home and home-schooling parent, but it's far from linear. Some weeks I'm on top of the world, and others, I'm scraping to get dinner on the table. But while the logistics are complicated, the situation is wonderful. Home schooling has been a fantastic choice for my son.
As many of you may know, I started home schooling my ten year-old son in January. I've gotten so many wonderful emails and comments from you cheering me on...thank you. You have no idea how good it feels to have this wave of positive enthusiasm behind me, especially because this is such unfamiliar territory.
A few of you have asked me to write in more detail about our home schooling decision: why, when, how. Those posts are coalescing in my mind and will appear here soon. My hope is that by sharing my experience so far, we can spend the summer talking about school and learning in a broader context. Parenthackers are such a smart, inquisitive group...I think we could talk about this stuff forever.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know that the posting blips will hopefully reduce in frequency as I get better organized. And that all is well in the House of Dornfest. And that I'm so grateful that I get to go on this adventure while still hanging out with all of you.
