I received a letter today that began with the following:
Welcome to Mother of Divine Grace School! I am pleased to inform you that your family has been officially accepted for the 2009-2010 year.
So... it's official. We're homeschooling. And we're doing it with the help of Mother of Divine Grace School, website here. So my kids' curriculum will be Classical; Catholic; Filtered through me (!); organized with the help of an on-call consultant; tailored to their abilities with the help of personal assessments; and taught at home. Holy Toledo again! Recently, I shared some anxiety as the application date got closer. Today I'm excited. This really feels like the beginning of an adventure. True, an adventure with some nerve-wracking possibilities (maybe like spelunking or hanggliding... or - name your extreme sport here...) - but wonderful, exhilarating, daring, and fun too.
