We have three little girls and I started homeschooling the oldest for Kindergarten this year. We decided to place the the 3 yr old in a preschool for three days a week so I could focus on school with the oldest on those days. As the holidays approach, the 3 yr. old is having school programs and parties and I feel incredibly guilty for keeping the 5 yr. old home. She wants so much to be a part of the fun. We just moved to a small community and there is no local home school groups. We have talked with her to see if she would rather go to school or stay and do school with Mommy and she wants to continue home school. She is learning and doing well, but I feel like I am failing her on the socialization/fun aspect. Has anyone else faced this? I feel so bad.
