There are some days when we don't really stick to a routine and those are the days that they go wild. The days I sit with them and we do activities, they are very tolerable and even fun to be around. They just want me to be with them. Sweet children!
For the decision that Jorge and I just recently made, the fact that the girls are so content when I play with them was what ultimately lead to the final conclusion.
I had been going back and forth whether or not to enroll the girls in school here. There are several reasons and they vary. I had decided to just enroll them and deal with all the issues that it might bring. But every time we would drive by a school here, which is frequently since they are all over, I would start to get stressed.

The other night I couldn't get to sleep thinking about it. And the next day decided to contact a bunch of friends that currently homeschool or are teachers themselves. From all the conversations I had, it made me feel confident that I could do it, homeschool the girls.
I've decided that I will homeschool the girls, figuring out what works for us as we go along. That way I can keep them on track with the standards for schools in Indiana. We can concentrate on the basics and whatever else interests us. It will allow us to be flexible and hopefully strengthen my relationship with the girls. We will just make sure to stay on course with the standards of what Indiana expects so when we go back they can flow right into a public school if that is the course we choose at the time.
After looking online at all the resources and possibilities, I am surprisingly excited to do this. I haven't been extremely active in working with the girls but have started working daily with them so we can get into a routine. They seem to really love it. I am sure that they are happy that they get attention without having to demand it.
If you have any resources that have worked for you with homeschooling, feel free to send them my way!
