11th Year.

Someone is doing a poll on Facebook asking how many years everyone has been homeschooling.  This is our 11th year.  We decided to pull our oldest out of school for 1 year before he started middle school and it snowballed from there, with us quickly seeing many, many advantages to schooling at home and pulling our other 2 out of the public school system a few weeks after school started.  So when we started, we were homeschooling a 6th grader, a 3rd grader and a 1st grader.  Fast forward 11 years and the oldest is a junior in college with good grades, the 18 year old has graduated and is working on her own crafting business and writing a novel and the youngest, in 11th grade, is still homeschooling, but with less and less input from his parents as he finds he can do the work himself (with some writing help from his sister due to his dysgraphia).  He's going to take the PSAT tomorrow.  I'm not sure if there is any advantage to taking it for him, scholarship wise, but it only costs 14 dollars, some of his friends are taking it and he's looking forward to giving his brain a good stretch.

We have never regretted our decision to home school, not for one second.
