I'm desperately trying to think of something to say about afterschooling to justify this post, but I cannot. I also cannot resist a blank slate.

Never got to be first on the old board!

Congratulations on being first, Andie. :) You know, I started not posting first over the last few months, because it was just more evidence of my insomnia. If I had only known that one would be THE last.

An afterschooling board is great! So many of us do a mix, depending on the child and the year.

I've tried to post this for the last half hour, and keep getting 'server busy'. :rolleyes:

Wow! I just noticed this board! It's great! I am actually an afterschooler, but I have visited the board for ever because you ladies are just an amazing source of information and support!

I hope the news spread and we get more users in this new board!

I'm homeschooling two of mine (8th & 3rd), and afterschooling my oldest
(10th). She was homeschooled through 9th grade.

What are your dc's ages/grades?

I only have two: an 11 yo dd who is in 6th grade and a 3 yo (almost 4) dd.

My oldest attends a small private school where she is very happy, and I just try to support her school curriculum. I also work with her at keeping up her Spanish speaking skills, so far I have not done anything formal, but I talk to her in Spanish since I am a native speaker.

I am just starting the Preparatory Curriculum to Letter of the week with my little one.

How did your oldest adapt to high school?

I like to lurk in the High School board because I get to learn a lot about the American high school system, how it is structured etc, which I otherwise would know nothing about.

She adapted just fine, because it was her idea. :D She says it's much easier than homeschooling, even though she's in honors/pre-AP.

She always wanted to go, and it was sort of now or never, with the transfer in.

She's happy. But there is plenty of supplementation needed! :rolleyes:

Oh, I'm glad to see this board. I'll likely be afterschooling in the future, and am glad I'm not going to be 'kicked off' the boards for not being a full time homeschooler!! :p
