It was a decision that took us several months to come to. Even after realizing this is the best choice for Sania, we kept the attitude that it may or may not be the right choice for our other children. So, in 2011 as all of Anara’s friends were headed off to climb on the big yellow bus and she begged to join them, we let her. It soon became apparent though, that little Anara would be in for an even bumpier road than Nia if we didn’t equip her with some of the same tools and a few different ones that we were already using with her big sister.
The kids and I also have gluten issues which we found out about the first year we began homeschooling. There are over 200 symptoms that coincide with us eating wheat gluten, so lets just say, we can't eat it. The year Anara went to public school, we found dealing with gluten in the school painfully (both physically and emotionally)
Now we are at the point that we have decided to just homeschool. Sure it’s possible some unforeseen circumstance could change this, but we realize it’s what is best for our kids, their learning style, and our family.
