I just wanted to say hello! My name is Pam, and I've been visiting this message board for about a week, and I'm getting very excited about joining you for some park or class time in the next two weeks. I have one daughter, Maya, who will be five in September. I've been considering homeschooling her for about 2 years. This year will be our test year. I want to explore whether this is an option for us, and if it is, I want to be able to introduce both Maya and my husband to homeschooling in a positive way.
I have some fun gooey science projects and bunches of elementary teaching supplies and materials that I would be happy to share as needed. My parents and bonus-parents were all teachers and administrators prior to retirement. So, I inherited a bunch of miscellaneous stuff that we use occasionally now, and will be able to utilize more often as she gets older.
If there are suggestions you have regarding starting to homeschool, please let me know.
You all sound like nice and interesting people, and I'm looking forward to meeting you!
