That's right! We just completed our fourth day of the new school year. I can barely believe I have a Junior in high school now. I can barely believe that we have survived ten years of homeschooling and have now started the eleventh year! Only the Lord could have brought us this far--we never could have done it without Him. In the beginning of it all I said I would take a year at a time, and each year we decided to do it again! At first,we lovingly called ourselves the "Solid Rock Christian School", but the fact of it is that we are a satellite school of ABeka Academy in Florida. We've been in the video/dvd program almost the entire way, and for high school we've been doing it for credit with the school, which means papers have to be sent in by a certain date. Keeps me on my toes! Otherwise, I would be forever dragging my feet grading quizzes and papers and keeping up the grading sheets.
I wasn't happy about having to get back into the school routine, but now I've settled in. Got all our books where they should be. Got all the tests and quizzes put in the place where they should be. Doing my assignment sheets every other day, and enjoying the sound of the the video teachers (and often the chuckles from my daughter over goings on in the video classroom). Actually, I like the sound of the teachers as they instruct the kids in the classroom, and their often remarks to "you who are listening at home..." Especially Mr. McBride. He's a favorite around here and Neesie has him for TWO subjects this year: Bible and American History. The latest of his was filmed in 2007, so I often wonder what Mr. McBride would be saying about the things going on in government today. Neesie will have him again next year when he's her teacher for American Government. I wish you could hear this guy when he teaches--he is something else. All the young people LOVE his class. Btw, he's a staunch conservative politically.
And all week the weather has been GORGEOUS here. A little cool for some people's liking, but I could keep it all year. How's it in your neck of the woods?
