I hope you don't mind that I dropped in here. I'm probably not the kind of person you'd expect to find reading your blog, and yet I really needed to read something just like this tonight. I'm debating whether to home-school my 5-year-old son. Public school kindergarten is miserable for both of us, and I'm sick of crying each night after I put him to bed. I'd considered homeschooling before he was born, but the older he's grown the more his personality seemed too drastically different from the kind of child I thought would respond well to homeschooling. Turns out, I had a notion that all parents who homeschool are happy, unnaturally calm and infinitely patient sorts who cheerfully look up from kneading homemade bread to drill their preschool-aged children on Latinate conjugation. Yes, I realize I was a little off. Please don't be offended -- it wasn't homeschooling parents I was doubting: it was my self. Your post is helping me see that there's no standard of perfection out there, that our kids will be better for having been with us because we'll try harder for them than any teacher will.

Thanks so far for you record of you day. I'm just starting to figure out what our days are going to look like this year. I have finally given myself permission to start our day at 8:00 since thats when we usually get up. I read all these scheduling books aobut how mom needs to be up early and I've tried again and again but to fail each time and get discouraged. Then it hit me. It's my homeschool. I don't need to listen to others and be discouraged because I can't get up at 7:00. Now to read your other entries! Susan

I'm looking forward to parts 2, 3, ?. I love reading about other homeschooling families and their "normal" days. I enjoy knowing that no one is really normal -- so that makes us okay!
