Off on an adventure. Homeschool?

So, I haven't been around in a while. Well, there are several good reasons for that. One, CRPS sucks and I've been really bad off with it. Can't even use my regular wheelchair by myself now. Time for a motorized one.
Two...I'm going to start homeschooling my son.
Ok, I'll wait for the horrified gasps to die down. Yes, I'm doing it. My son has been done a huge disservice by the public school system. Before you start with the "oh yes, another mom who thinks her precious boy can do no wrong" I am not that mom. My son is not perfect. He is a good kid and is not a trouble maker but, he is not perfect. No child is.
My son is on the autism spectrum and require some additional help. The school system was supposed to provide this help. They didn't. They ignored him. By ignored I mean...ignored. I had to do something. So, I've decided to home school.
I've spent any time I'm not writhing in pain or hooked up to a monitor in a hospital, finding out what I need to do to become a registered home school. Now...I'm almost ready.
Have you ever considered homeschool or did you homeschool your kids?  I'd love to hear about it.
I will let you know how it goes...and throw a victory roll or two in for good measure...

  1. Best of luck to you and your son with the homeschooling! A few of my friends were homeschooled or are homeschooling their kids, and they are doing just fine. Sorry to hear your mobility isn't going so well, though. Healing thoughts coming your way...take care. :)
