We decided to homeschool mainly because we were both extremely bored in school. We both did very well academically, but ended up causing a lot of trouble otherwise You can't believe it right...sweet little me?? LOL

We are starting to build a very open learning environment. When Nate shows interest in something we try to expose him to more of it, and it seems to be working quite well. Despite threats from my sister that he would fall way behind if we didn't put him in Early Headstart, he is doing just as well (if not better ) than his cousin who is the same age.

Fortunately Iowa is very supportive of homeschooling. There is a dual enrollment option which allows your child to take two classes a semester at a school, and participate in extracurriculars. There are also several options for evaluating students: portfolio, testing, or workbooks.

Well, I've rambled on long enough lol See you all later
