When did/does RE start where you are?
I'm doing homestudy with my 10yo son. We started today, though I think RE started last week. I've never taught classes, but I have done homestudy in the past with my DDs.
I was happy with our first lesson. We're using the "Blest Are We" series, and they have a special guide for homestudying parents. I've never felt like my DS got much out of RE, and I wanted to be in a position to make him think more and think harder about God, and to also be able to demonstrate more about what we as a family believe and how I personally live out my faith.
One nice thing that happened at church this morning is that the priest gave a blessing first to catechists, and then to parents. He invited the parents to stand for the blessing, and I was quite surprised that DH stood. He's agnostic and while he attends mass with us, he normally excuses himself from participation. That was a pleasant surprise.
Yesterday was our first Sunday of RE.
THis is our first experience with religious ed.
