End of the Year Update

Posted by Hallee on May 15, 2013 in Parenting, Raising boys

I was really upset about this email, because Scott turns 7 in July. We purposefully red-shirted him and started him in Kindergarten when was already 6. What I read when I read this was that they were considering retention. I said something to a friend who has a middle schooler with Aspergers, and she said, “Call and ARC meeting.”

Best Laid Plans…

Posted by Hallee on Sep 13, 2012 in Christian Faith, homeschooling, Parenting

I feel a little bit like a fraud. “Christian Homeschooling Mom Enrolls Special Needs Child in Public School.” I don’t know how a family so strongly homeschool minded could end up with not one, but two children in public school and a 4-year-old in a preschool. However, despite what WE thought was best, God has intervened and taken us on a different direction.

Redshirting

Posted by Hallee on Jul 26, 2011 in homeschooling, Parenting, Raising boys

Redshirting is holding your school-aged child back an extra year, and starting them in kindergarten at the age of 6 (or first grade at the age of 7). I was bouncing around the idea of writing a post about it and tried to look up the etymology of the term and came across two interesting things: (1) the term “redshirting” as far as I can tell, has its history in sports and something to do with Freshmen wearing red shirts, and (2) there is a MAJOR criticism in the world out there for people who choose to redshirt. Typically, the criticism came from people who have a different world view than I, so I decided no more bouncing around with an idea — I’ll go ahead and write it. :-)

Let the homeschool year begin! (finally!)

Posted by Hallee on Sep 15, 2009 in homeschooling, Parenting, Raising boys, Raising girls

This year, I’ve decided to use prepared curriculum. I’ve been prayerfully watching and waiting for the one that would just pop out at me. Looking through our favorite online resource for all things faith based, I found exactly what I was looking for!
