Its true! All the crazy things you heard about us are true! We are really gonna do it!
We are homeschooling COLLEGE!
Yep, we are not just jumping in the deep end...we are diving in.
Our life jacket is "College Plus". You can read all about it at www.collegeplus.com.
Katie has applied and been accepted. Now, the next step is enrolling, talking with her coach, and starting the program. All of the coaches have been through the program and know what to expect.
The plan is to work the program, study & take the tests, take online classes and have a 4 year degree in 2 1/2 - 3 years. She is smart, she is dedicated, she is determined, and she has some great cheerleaders (Greg & I). After all, she did 4 years of highschool in 3 years. And after that program is done, if she wants to continue on, she will only be 20. Plenty of time to earn more credits or degrees or whatever.
And before anyone sends emails questioning our sanity, her socialization, can we afford college, etc. We all 3 prayed for months about this and this is the answer the Lord led all of us too. You can question our sanity, but we like being "insane". Her socialization is fine. She wants to get a job (part time) and be able to travel with us when we go, this way she can. Yep, we can afford to send her to college...this ain't about money.
It is about flexibility, its about relationships, its about protection, its about getting a quality Christian education, its about learning to think and be independent.
