Here's hoping anyway.
My goals: I want to be able to document some things going on in our homeschooling life, so that maybe I can remember just why I'm doing this, or I have something to help me remember cool things I want to be doing.
Who I am: I'm Debra, and we've considered ourselves to be homeschoolers since before the kids were even born. There are now five of those kids.
Connor: my 11 year old 6th grader. He's in Boy Scouts, loves science, is great at math, reads everything in sight, and is currently on a computer programming kick.
William: my 10 year old 4th grader. He has struggled with reading, and therefore with a few other things as well. He loves to cook, he loves read-aloud time, and he absorbs almost everything he hears. He's a Webelos Scout, and his goal is to earn all twenty activity badges, faster than his big brother did. Five down so far.
Thomas: my 8 year old 2nd grader. He's a pretty typical 2nd grader, and he'd rather be playing games than doing school. He loves the read-aloud time too, particularly the less schoolish ones. He loves Cub Scouts.
Richard: my 4 year old. He wants to do everything his big brothers do, has taught himself to read and has taught himself a bunch of math. He's counting the days until he's a real kindergartner, and the days until he can be a Tiger Scout.
Katrina: my 2.5 year old daughter. She is always on the move. She happily runs around the house, insisting on being called "Princess" and reciting her ABC's (I ought to get that recorded.... she skips letters, and once she gets to P, she jumps back to E or so)
Okay, so that is it for today. I need to get busy with trying to decide whether or not Scouts should be called off due to snow. (one post down... think I can keep it up?)
