About the guilt.
"I'm over it."
I'm telling you this so if you are homeschooling little ones, you can get over it earlier than later. Choose your extras wisely. Now, my kids have to beg me to do something, I want them to really invest themselves into it.
I'm having flashbacks of when they took sign language at $120 per child for not that many weeks. I think they just liked going to the library where the class was held. There was a great selection of science DVDs available there.
Back to the sign language and Thrifty Thursday. Don't pay an instructor until they have mastered some of the free information on the internet. If they show a genuine interest and love for it, then by all means, hire a professional.
This was in my email the other day, I won't bore you with the whole email but here's the gist, with my commentary in red:
Back to the email.....
I visited the website and yes there are free resources. I think the blog has two authors, it's hard to tell. I have to include a disclaimer that I am not endorsing the blog. There are some things over there that I am not wholly in agreement with. I am encouraging you to stop by and and see the resources if you are interested in introducing your children to sign language. If your children are ready for more, check out You Tube, Google or your public library.
I welcome reader comments with open arms. I also understand if you aren't the commenting or hugging type of person, you can drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
