Jonah left Montessori School last Friday. On Monday, we started our homeschooling journey. Jonah wants to unschool. And it's ME who is scared.
Will people accept us? Will it REALLY work? How will we find other families who are doing this? Do they all live across the country? How can we maintain friendships for Jonah?
There are thousand questions flying through my brain right now.
Mostly I feel inadequate. Inadequate to defend our choices for our family and inadequate to spend the necessary time.
I feel lucky that we have this year before we have to worry about an umbrella or a registration or any sort of inspection or what have you to sort of get our feet under us.
I think it's funny when people ask me what we did today or what Jonah learned. It's really hard to articulate it.
There's also the whole - we really decided on the unschooling bit yesterday. Before that I was fully prepared to order curriculums. Now I feel sort of like I'm flailing.
But we're doing just fine. And we ARE learning. I hope that those who are close to us will understand what we're doing and why we're doing it. I'd like to have some support. Just forums and websites aren't really doing it for me anymore.
