Well Our first week has come and gone and I have to say it was fantastic. the children took to it like ducks to water. They are sitting down and doing the work with very little complaints.
We were even able to do a field trip on thursday. Tim and I took the children to the Irving Nature Park and we talked about the animal and marshes. The children loved it.
Michelle (8) has sent off her flat people for her Sept project. She is waiting eagerly for the pictures and notes from the "flat's" journey.....BTW Ty to all who helped with this. It is appreciated.
Kathryn (almost 15)is still working on her book. Also doing a fall project on Mars. Kat does a lot of independant studies. She amazes me each day. She studies hard, practices her guitar and helps with her siblings, and still has time for a evening job. She has a great head on her shoulders.
Alex ( 13) is working his way through a lot of english sheets and math. These are his worst two subjects. With the right incentive( playing on the computer) he completes his work properly and on time. It is a joy to see him want to read his books.
(These pics of flowers were taken by the kids during one of our daily walks.)
So as you can see the children are settling in well and hopefully next week will be as great as this week was. I only wish we had done this sooner!!!
