Tracy posted about this on her blog last week and I have looked forward to it ever since! I am not sure how much I will be able to write about this, but I will link to my previous posts where they apply.

Because Tuesday's question involves the "how" and I certainly not qualified to answer this with actual experience behind me, I can only tell you that I plan to take the advice of seasoned homeschoolers. My first goal is to CHILL OUT. I am trying to not *over plan* but at the same time have a fairly decent schedule that we can adhere to. I am not involved in local co-ops yet, art classes, or foreign language but I certainly hope to be in the future. I need to feel my way through these first few months and let my kids direct me a bit in the area of time management. If I assign a particular block to a particular subject they may complete blow that out of the water. I love reading the schedules that other homeschoolers follow and it gives me such a wonderful starting point.
If I had to "name" our style I guess it would be a hybrid method of traditional/classical/& CHILL OUT. Is CHILL OUT an official type?
For me, there is no greater resource for homeschooling than other homeschoolers! Have a blessed week :)
