Today was the day that Maddy, the child who ended up being home educated for the longest, started school.
She had a great day; she came home full of stories and thoughts and interest. I think she went at just the right time and like her sisters before her, she seems to have made a good start. I daresay there will be bumps along the way but it was wonderful to hear how positive she was, wonderful to hear her say “the oddest thing was it didn’t seem that odd to be there”. I’m pleased about that. I may not have ended up home educating as I wish I had but along the way adaptable, able, self aware children seem to have come out of the process.
It will be interesting to see what happens next. Well done Maddy.
