And here we are!


Recommended Posts

It's been a few years since I last posted but back in the day I was a regular poster and reader of these forums and was so grateful for the wealth of information and experience that all the moms shared here. Ds homeschooled through grade 9 and then worked primarily online for his classes while remaining at home for 10 through 12. Fast forward to this month and he committed to his college of choice for a double degree in Vocal Performance and Mathematics with very generous scholarships to help out. What a year to end on though. It has probably been our hardest homeschooling year ever, maybe even in general, as I imagine it has been for so many folks.

The days of planning and researching and drawing up schedules for each year, Augusts spent gathering books and materials and making lesson plans, endless google searches for just the right history curriculum or the perfect science program, convos here on WTM with others in the same boat, they're are all done. I have to admit I'm pretty sad about that part of things. I loved homeschooling ds, loved his enthusiasm and curiosity and watching his interests sprout and grow according to his inclinations, loved being part of the homeschooling communities in my area and organizing things for the kids.

It's a new chapter for us, a new landscape to navigate but I wanted to come back here to where it all started for us and say thanks for all the years of wisdom the WTM forums have offered. I'm guessing some of your kids are similarly positioned so congrats to them and to you wonderful moms for shepherding them through the whole experience.

Brava! 🎉

Congrats to you and your son, shukriyya! 

Today is the first time in a long while that I have visited these forums. Homeschooling was a huge part of my life for many years. I joined these forums when my children were quite young at the beginning of our homeschool journey. My youngest is in college now, my middle in medical school and my oldest is married with a baby of her own. Time flies. I loved homeschooling so much but to everything there is a season. Enjoy these years while they last!

Thanks so much! Great to hear from someone who's walked this path already. And done it well, I might add. Time does indeed fly!
