I would never have guessed a few years ago that our homeschooling days would look like they look this school year.
When I pulled my boys out of public school as they finished first and second grade, with a daughter almost preschool-aged, I just assumed we would exclusively homeschool for the duration.
In recent years, my boys continued to be convinced that they would be homeschooled through graduation, while my now elementary-aged daughter talked about a desire to be homeschooled through middle school, and then to attend high school.
However, last year, just before starting third grade, she requested to try school outside of our home for the first time, while her brothers stayed home. It was odd to have days of only middle school work with my boys, while she went away.
This year, our days have looked even more different. While my daughter has continued to go to school full time, my sons decided to do more of a hybrid homeschooling approach this year.
