I have this blog and I made it for the purposes of blogging about everything that happens in life. Also, for being creative, and now with the intent of sharing my home school experiences with the world. I know that I need to get better about blogging, because I have a desire to show people things that happen in my world. I want people to see my creative ability.
Right now, I have a migraine. One of those "everything is killing my head" type of headaches. I am only on the computer because I am killing time before class starts.
I have been going to Kaplan University online for almost a year now. I will graduate with my A.A.S in Human Services next March. I am slightly excited about this, but I know that when it gets closer to that time I will be even more excited about it.
We have decided to go ahead and home school Jude for awhile. We visited a Christian school here and it was kind of drab and uneventful, we didn't feel that it would be a good fit for Jude's personality. We also considered sending him to the local Public school, but after having worked in various school districts throughout the United States for the last several years and seeing first hand how students are treated and the lack of education they receive, we have decided it will be best for now for me to teach him.
I am excited, yet nervous, about this opportunity. I know that I will receive a lot of negative feedback regarding the decision to home school him. I mentioned in my child development class last week this idea and the professor (whose from New York area) slammed me up and down, left and right. Giving me all these "things" I needed to do in order to get him approved by the state and how she "thought" every state was the same. I kindly posted a link to the Illinois department of education, home school section and she quickly shut up.
Anywho, I don't know what else to say. Jude is making train noises and I'm trying not to scratch my eyes out. I have to attend seminar for an hour, then I can take a shower and hopefully go to bed. Hoping this migraine is gone tomorrow.
Stay tuned for more updates. Lots of things will be happening over the next couple months and I hope that I can make time to get on here and post.
