Sept Update

Little dudes are sick today, and so I'm taking a minute to update.

Ebby is doing great with doing his K12 work. Part of the reason is that it is fairly simple for him. If it were more challenging, he would probably be giving more pushback. Hopefully by the time he gets to things he doesn't know, he'll have a foundation good enough to support the new learning.

Bobo is doing better. He's still on the cusp of reading but not yet fluent. Once he gets there, I'm hoping that I won't have to supervise every one of his lessons.

This is always such a frustrating point - that point when you know that they will be a fluent reader any day, but they're not there yet. Argh!

Jojo is doing really well with the curricula I chose for her this year, and I don't think I've ever said that before. She even likes biology, and that too is a first. We're using one of Glencoe's textbooks. The workbooks that go with them have so many good "thinking" questions that she's learning it without any struggle.

Meme is getting used to doing more work everyday. She's not happy about it, but she is getting used to it. She was asked to take part in the National Math Lab. It's a program where she attends an hour long online class everyday in order to help build up some of the basic math skills. It's just what she needed.
