Ummm my kids were bored and my oldest asked if he could start math (he knew what the plan was for math), and then my younger wanted to do math too. Since its online they had to take turns, so ds did math and typing while dd did spelling, then dd did math. They had fun, it didn't last as long as "school" will, but I was happy they wanted to do something besides video games. I also did a little eval of dd and I am pretty sure she has dyslexia, which ive been suspecting for a while. So I have to learn some good ways to teach her.

I'm happy they had fun and learned some stuff too today :)

We started this past Monday. We're doing testing this week. Yay. He has off tomorrow of course, but finishes it all up on Friday. Next Monday we're onto work for the new year.

Thank you! I needed to hear that. DH was like "what the heck?" Lol. He's not as excited as we are ;)

We have also been hatching butterflies! I will have to post about that in a couple days when we release them. I got the butterflies at work (I work in a public kindergarten...well I did) we got them too late to do them with the class, so I brought 4 home along with the butterfly journals and out my kids to work..they were still in school when we started so it is kind of half-butted, but they did it and I didn't push for too much.


Quoting romacox:

They and you are awesomegood
