This blog used to be about little odds and ends – things that made me crazy or ways that I stayed sane. We’re heading in a new direction now, so I’m starting with a clean slate.

My son has always struggled in public school. The noise, other kids and chaos have always been a struggle. He has trouble fitting in with his peers and is often the target for bullies. He also has a learning disability called “Disability of Written Expression.” That means, in part, that he struggles with getting his thoughts into words to put on paper.
A few months ago, we made the decision to pull him out and provide intensive home instruction in a safe environment.  This blog will now become a journal of our year of home schooling. So far, its been exciting, hard, tiring, illuminating and exhilarating all at the same time. I can’t wait to start sharing it with you and hearing from others in the same situation!
