Back to school
There is a reason why I enjoy the back to school commercials where the parents are skipping along filling their baskets with school supplies. Yep, by the time we reach the end of the summer we are ready to go back to school ! Myself & the kids included. Although the school year will look a little different for us this year. we are at an even split. 2 at home & 2 at school.
We decided to keep Zane home this year & try homeschooling him. If you would have told me this just six months ago I would have said you were crazy. But after talking with some of my homeschooling friends this summer,prayer, & my partner in crime ( Mr. Adam ), we thought this would be a great opprotunity for Zane to focus more on his academics & less on his social network. & probably the most important thing which is to make learning FUN for him again. We've picked out some awesome curriculum & are joining a local co-op where he will take three enrichment classes once a week with other 7th graders. Plus he will continue with football, basketball through the fall & winter.
Miss Zoe started the 5th grade, Carson the 2nd grade so far so good. Both are enjoying seeing friends again and their new teachers. They are both in soccer & have practice on the same field this time. Which helps out A lot !
Miss V hasn't quite figured out why Zoe & Carson are leaving on the bus every day & asks over & over where they are during the day. she is my bus spotter in the afternoon. Her job is to keep an eye out for the bus while I try to wrap up the chores for the day. She is being assessed next Friday for a preschool program. If she does not start preschool through this particular program , I will be working with her at home this year as well.
Most importantly, this week is Vania's finalization. Tuesday at 11:00am we head to the court house. Please keep us in your prayers !!!!!!! The attorney seems to think we have everything in place. Our fingers & toes are crossed .
