The Final Wrap Up
My son graduated last month. We took his party on the road and celebrated in Minnesota at the end of June. While we were there, someone made a comment about our school. My husband said, “That school is closed.” He’s right. The end of an era has come to our house.
We didn’t set out to be a homeschooling family. In the end, we were a homeschool/public school family. We had one son in each setting. We were a “do what is best for each child” family.
For S, we decided that homeschooling him was the best option after attending public elementary school. He was homeschooled for half of third grade in California prior to moving to Virginia. Once we moved here, he attended public school for 2 ½ years. We made the decision to start homeschooling him for sixth grade and continued on until the end. It’s been quite a journey!The past week has been spent cleaning out school “stuff” from our house. It has been a process. I thought we had cleaned out quite a bit last summer. There were still a lot of things shoved on the bookshelves, in binders, in closets, and in files. We have three bins of stuff to give away to friends. It is amazing how much stuff we had considering that my son did the majority of his work through computerized options.
We reorganized the office area that my son worked in and made it more of a college student type space. It looks very different in there. Times are changing here.
I’m not sure what this next year looks like for me. It will be very different. I will be busy as we support my son in his transition to college.
Now that my office is organized and my school is closed, there will be a lot of time for me to be on the couch with chocolate...
