Still Here...

It has been a while since I have blogged. It has been a rough couple of weeks, both emotionally and academically. We have a anniversary that has wreaked some havoc and then our newest 2nd grader is struggling with the new curriculum. Not so much the work, but her confidence level is low. As in the past with my other children, bringing her home from public school has a transition where I have to spend a great deal of time teaching her how to learn. I feel like she was fed information that she had to reproduce, but was not required to search for and find information  She loves being home and if I drive anywhere near where her old school was she hides her face and ask me not to take her back there. I assure her all of the time that she is safe and home.

Anyway... for the record.

9th grade is doing well in school, currently having a 4.0 GPA.
4th grade is keeping up and seems to be doing much better in math.
2nd grade (Jackson) is doing excellent. He works so independently and has tested out of 2 units so far.
2nd grade (Jeanna) is working hard. She has leaned some key information that will lead to more success.

We are still working out some kinks, but making good progress. I hope things will smooth out in the next couple of weeks.

Praying for you! It will work out!
I remember long ago when we brought our boys out of public school it was a definite learning curve for them to learn HOW to learn!
