So what’s been going on with us, and homeschool? So much. I finally got my sons curriculum in we are going to be doing alpha and omega L.A and Math. He completed of mice and men, which was his reading assignment until we got his books in. Because he loves history and movies so much, I figured we get our history in by reading books. This way we can read a book and then he can watch the movie. Even though of mice and men isn’t really history it did take place in early 1900′ s and it’s a classic! He really enjoyed it! Now he can’t wait to read his next book! We had a little competition going on. I love to read and will usually finish a book in about 1 week. So I read a book at the same time as he did and challenged him to finish his book before me. He finished two days after, but it was still fun, and nice to have him read while I was reading.
Speaking of reading, Jay can now read!! I never thought we would get here. If you have read my earlier blogs, you know reading was a fear of mine as well as a concern. She wasn’t reading and that was stressing me out. Well the other day she just started reading! Now don’t get me wrong she is reading on her level, but she IS reading! I was so excited, that I probably scared her half to death with my excitement. We are finally doing the Abeka I do read books! It took us a little while but we made it. I am so happy that I will be closing out our kindergarden year this way. I feel as though we have truly accomplished something! I think that we will probably homeschool year round, this way we can take more days off in the fall and winter, and my son can catch up. He is so far behind, so I want to make sure I give him a fair shot. He will most likely be repeating the 8th grade next year, before moving on to high school. So as of now school is coming along well. I try not to stress myself out to much, and just take it easy. What I have learned from doing kindergarden, is that kids will learn in their own time. Some mature faster than others, but in the end they will get it! I see Jay maturing everyday and as she matures she learns things a lot faster and a lot easier. I can’t rush it!
