One thing that comes to mind is this. Maybe you could take her on a city bus ride. Maybe you could wait and do this on her first official day of school. That's all I've got right now. Hopefully others will have some great ideas for you.maritime momma wrote:Hi everyone! I was around the board earlier this year and have been absent tending to a newborn, born April 1st.... I'm glad to be back amongst you all and look forward to catching up on missed threads! As I do that, I ask you this:
Our DD3 often talks about "When I'm bigger, I'm going to go to school just like (so and so)" or when she sees a school bus, she can't keep her excitment from expressing how she'll get to ride on one when she's "bigger". Besides generally talking about how some children "go to" a school and some children "go to" school at home (not stating what she will be doing), I haven't discussed this with her yet. She often catches me off guard, and I am just not quite sure how I want to reply. I don't want to her to have a negative attitude toward homeschooling whatsoever and I know I have to proceed carefully. Ideas or suggestions or personal experiences?
Thanks in advance, Audrey
P.S. There is a school bus that picks up a neighbor kid next door to us every school day about 6:30 a.m. My dc are very happy that they don't have to be up and ready by 6:30 a.m. every day. But they are older.
