I think we've found a rhythm. Everything is working like clockwork. Everyone knows what to do and when to do it - thanks to assignment check sheets and well thought out lesson plans through Week 6. Of course MFW lesson plans are done through the end of the year so no worries there.
I'm pleasantly surprised to report that NuNu is finding her history readings interesting. She hates to read but loves the stories in Tales of Ancient Egypt which is part of her Beautiful Feet Ancient History curriculum. She is also enjoying her online class with Bridgeway Academy which I will be reviewing really soon.
Pumpkin reluctantly gets through her Videotext lessons which I am reviewing as well. It is a line by line, precept by precept type of curriculum. You think you are learning something you already know but I understand they are trying to build a strong Algebra foundation on which to build. We faithfully tread through each lesson.
Now to the highschooler - driver's ed! She has her learner's permit now so Dad is fully responsible for her driving lessons. Her times out with Dad make for funny stories upon their return. It's one of those rites of passage that makes parents everywhere nervous. I'm thinking of ordering some "student driver" magnetic signs to put on the car when they are out driving. Let all other drivers beware is a good thing.
She is also preparing for the PSAT which will take place in October. The school has prep classes which I signed her up for. They will have SAT prep classes in the Spring right before the scheduled SAT. There are many rites of passage coming up for her. My mom used to say "enjoy while their small because they grow up so fast." Now I know what she means.
