Homeschooling wasn't something we had planned on doing but it ended up being one of the best decisions we have ever made.  I truly believe it changed the future of our relationships with our children for the good in a way that never could have happened if they had been in public schools.  We didn't lose them to peer pressure and friends the way it happens with so many kids...they were able to participate in their chosen sports at a level that never would have been possible otherwise.  So much good.

And now we might be seeing an end to our homeschooling days.

Equestrian Girl is seeing her future and avoiding debt is a big part of that future.  She is hoping to enroll in the public school and dual enroll with the community college.  If all goes as planned, she will graduate high school with an Associates Degree from the college and then be able to transfer into a university as a junior.  Since she should be able to work some the next two years, we are hoping we can save up enough to pay for those last two years in full.  

Motocross Boy also wants to enroll in the public school part time so he can participate in high school level sports.  They require at least 4 credit hours to play so he'll still be doing some homeschooling but it's going to be a huge change just the same.

I'm not so sure how I feel about these changes...
