When did I first hear about homechooling and what was my reaction? WoW, I don't even remember. I ran a childcare center before my children were born and continued there with them at my side until they were three...but, sometime before that, we knew that I was going to quit work when they were old enough and we were keeping them home. I assume that my reaction was probably something along the lines of *Oh, I wanna do that!* but I honestly don't remember my first introduction to homeschooling!
Did you have a mentor to help you get started? Not so much a mentor, but I did speak for a really long time one day to a wonderful lady that had homeschooled her children. She was a blessing to me that day and continues to be in my life, but we really don't talk homeschool much!
