Today was a big day. I learned about as much as I have yet on homeschooling. In specific homeschooling according to the Pennsylvania state law. I'm fortunate enough to have a neighbor (literally a few doors down) who has home schooled her children all of their lives. Its great to have an inside perspective on how the local superintendent's office works, what expectations they may have and how I go about keeping a portfolio that suits what they are looking for. I've made my appointment, written down my to do list and notified the school of whats to come. Today is the big day, its the day I committed to following through and taking my children's education into my very own hands. I cant say that I don't still feel as if I'm drowning in my own anxiety, to some degree I am still quite overwhelmed. I'm sure not a single day will go by that I'm not at least a little afraid however at least I'm doing whats best for us, and for Riley especially.
