Josiah started Kindergarten! I can't believe it. It wasn't an emotional day for me or anything, mainly because we're homeschooling. I guess if I had to drop him off somewhere I would have cried like a big baby. He was so ready to start and had been begging me for a while so we started one week earlier than I wanted to on August 24. He really is doing great and for the most part enjoys everything we're doing. We have some rough patches every once in a while but I guess when mom is the teacher this is expected. I have to confess that I never ever wanted to homeschool but I really don't have too many options. Some days I feel an incredible amount of pressure to be the one responsible to have to teach him how to read, math, writing, etc.!!!! What if I can't teach him the basic things he needs to learn? It is really scary but we get through it each and every day. Oh, and today he read his very first word all by himself! I'm glad that it was me and not a stranger that got to hear! I guess that makes it all worth it at the end.
