My name is Bret Thompson. I am the father of Katie, 4, Claire, 2, and Reese, 2 months. My wife and I have been living in Rio Rancho for about 8 years now. We are just starting to preschool Katie. I am currently part-time, while my wife has just gone back to work full time. I know it's unusual, but I am in charge of my children's education. We have done much research, investigating, and prayer about beginning this journy. For starting, we are members of a co-op, The Our World Albuquerque Homeschool Co-op. We meet three times a week to study. For Katie, I am using an ecclectic program using materails from The Mailbox, Alex, Nickalodian, Carson-Dellosa etc. We are doing ok, and perhaps it sounds like i've got it together, but I am just as frightened as any other beginning homeschool parent. I know that this is a process and there is a lot of trial and error involved. I would say that I am very excited about all of the opportunities and resources that are available for homeschoolers. In joining this forum, I am looking for some experienced wisdom as a resource. We were at the park on Sept. 8th. I was with my son, but my girls were at gymnastics. Thank you for reading my intro and have a great day!
