Someday, I'll post how Kevin and I came to our decision to homeschool Avery. And our decision to go with Lawrence Virtual School. Today's not that day, though. If you're interested, Kevin has his thoughts on our choice to homeschool on his blog.
Avery received her curriculum in the mail last week. Kevin and I went to an LVS (I'll call the school that from now on) tech training session on Wednesday and picked up her brand new Dell computer notebook. She was so excited to get it! I've spent most of the weekend getting acquainted with the K12 site and lesson planning. Right now we're trying to figure out when to actually start school. At first, I wanted to start early, knowing that we'd take some time off when the baby comes. Now, I just want to enjoy the rest of the summer and take more time to plan and prepare. I want to make her 1st day extra special, since she won't be getting on a bus. We didn't buy a bunch of supplies, no new clothes, no lunch tickets. I do plan to decorate the house for her 1st day, along with fixing her favorite meals, and probably a night out for ice cream at the end of the day. What are your thoughts? Do you have any ideas on how to make Avery's first day of Kindergarten special? Leave a comment and let me know!
