Preschool and Beyond

So another big period of time has passed, I think about writing a lot but get distracted and honestly forget. We have had a lot going on around here that has kept us very busy! Tristan started preschool in August. It is only 2 days a week for 2 and half hours but he is loving it! It is good for mommy too. He is learning a lot and it has been good for his social skills. I love back to school time because it means the kids are in school all day! Makes doing things around town much easier! I then realize that we plan on homeschooling so back to school will have a different meaning to it in a few years. It won't be wrapped around buying new clothes and huge amounts of supplies, it will be a bit more simple. We will be more focused on setting up our school area, buying supplies to keep at home and what wonderful fieldtrips we will be able to take because the kids will be at home. I know this will be a challenge but at this point in our lives we cannot afford private school and we are just not sure we want to send our kids to public school. I have nothing against public school and actually feel the school where our kids would go at this point is really good and all I hear is good things but there is something public schools cannot provide, the spiritual guidance that is so important for our children. So I will taken on this challenge as long as it works for all parties involved.
