Not Back to School

Stepping Stones classes begin Thursday, September 5, 2013!

Whether you generally follow the public school schedule or homeschool year-round, it is NOT back to school time for homeschoolers. Does that mean we are missing out?

Here is a list of some of the things homeschoolers miss out on during the back to school season:
  • Paying extra for that gym uniform when you have ample play clothes at home
  • Easing your children's anxieties about a new teacher, a new schedule, and new friends
  • The smell of fresh carbon monoxide first thing in the morning as the bus arrives
  • Chaos and long lines at enrollment
  • Paying in advance for lunches
  • Restrictions on what we can and cannot learn
  • Standardized testing (in some states)
As a homeschooling family, what do you miss out on during back to school time?
