    Default Hello from Texas

    I am a new accidental homeschooler. My now 12 year old always attended public school, liked it and did well, until this school year. After a month of A's and B's in middle school she began walking out of class, became withdrawn, and long story short was diagnosed with severe depression and was hospitalized for 9 days. She got better, went back to school and in less then a week the same thing happened and the school unenrolled her telling me her attendance(or lack of) was hurting the school and I should re-enroll her when she got better. At this point I decided to find my state requirements to homeschool and finding online resources. That was a few months ago and she and I are both much happier and less stressed. We started Time4Learning a few days ago. She is excited because I am letting her pick her lessons and pace in doing them, and I am excited because she is excited. I welcome any and all advice as I am still learning.
