A Major Decision Has Been Made



It’s been a minute since I’ve felt like writing and I wanted to get back to it while I had a chance. There is a pretty major update that I need to share and just a few other little housekeeping type things as well.

First and most importantly, a decision has been made in regards to the boys education moving forward, at least until such time that a working COVID-19 vaccine is widely available and we’ve established some herd immunity.

Lizze and I have been talking about this quite a bit, in consultation with their therapist and we’ve decided that the boys will be homeschooled in the Fall.

This wasn’t an easy decision for a number of reasons but it’s without a doubt, the safest thing we can do. Their health and safety come before anything else. This is going to add a great deal more to my already overflowing plate but for the foreseeable future, it’s the right move.

We’ve selected Ohio Connections Academy as their online school and Lizze is finalizing the enrollment today.

    I wish I could homeschool my daughter

    I home schooled my son, for different reasons, but it all worked out for the better for our situation and our son did well. Back in our time, we didn’t have online classes like they do now. The only choices were GED classes or taking correspondence, by mail, classes that were given by an actual high school that had an association with the company that marketed the classes. At the end, once the student completed all the required classes successfully, they obtained a high school diploma from the high school. It worked for our son for those times. But I’m very glad that parents such as you today have the internet where students can interact with the teachers doing a visual face to face. I wish your sons a great educational experience with their online home school experience. And at this difficult time you and Lizzie have made the best choice. Unfortunately too many of our citizens don’t realize that’s it not about them with their disregard for wearing mask and social distancing. It’s the fact that they, in their foolishness, could infect others and contribute to the detriment to an innocent persons health . Once again, good luck on your homeschooling.

    Rob, Henry went to Connections Academy for most of high school. In the end he got so sick that he didn’t quite finish, but he was about 18. He did end up testing very well for his GED. But what I’m trying to say is that the teachers are actually very much available for help. It’s almost like since they are doing it online they work harder to contact kids. It might be hard in some ways, as I think until the kids are in high school they have to be more supervised by a parent. But in general, Henry did well going there. I can’t tell you how well they deal with autistic kids but I know they have neuro-untypical kids. Hope it goes well!
