We pulled our oldest out of public school 2.5 years ago, and our other two boys, 2 years ago. I did a lot of research about homeschooling and the resources in our area. The first few months with just our oldest at home, we took the time to "decompress" and get to know our son again. Since he was in 7th grade, we asked for his input on how he would like school to look.
It has been a challenge, but most of the time I think we are doing the right thing for our boys. I will say, that listening to you talk at the St. Louis Homeschool Expo reaffirmed our decision! I was getting worried about how to keep track of everything that our boys are doing! Most of the time I am just one step ahead of them (and I'm perusing my master's degree!) It's scaring when your child can pick up a book you are reading for college and he understands the concepts being discussed!
Listening to you talk about transcripts, college applications, and scholarships put me at ease, knowing that this whole thing doesn't have to be as complicated as it was for me! Seriously, I wish I had heard you speak before I applied to college, I think I would have bee less stressed.
Our biggest challenge now is working with our middle son, who is both gifted and hard of hearing (but hearing aids don't work - so all of a sudden we are learning ASL). When he gets frustrated (or lazy) he just turns away (and since he is hard of hearing, he doesn't get the information he needs to keep working), so some days seem to drag on.

Fabulous video Lee!
To decompress, I did a lot of reading and returned to the very basics. Once we were more settled we did unit study. We hung in there and now are in our 8th year. I have struggled (far more than necessary) but I am seeing progress.
Lee, could you please address working with disabilities that come up in surprise?

It sounds like you are giving your student exactly what they need. It's in our nature as moms to worry, and that adds to the struggle, don't you think? Lee talks about learning to teach differently when faced with unexpected challenges (like learning disabilities) in this article: College for Struggling Learners
