8) So happy the evil Distributive Property section went better than expected. I feel like I should get a gold star, too!
Where have you guys made some triumphs this week? Tell us even if it is just convincing your toddler to flush. 8)

DS1 won a prize through the library for being one of the top 36 readers in their summer program.  I was so proud of him that we kept up with it through the whole summer.  Hopefully next summer he will be reading on his own(not that I don't like reading to him but I feel like I will hold him back with three others to care for) and he will do even better.  27 hours of reading WOOHOO!

We finished week one with no tears and on a fun note with a game

Isn't that a beautiful thing?! LOL I like to call those red letter weeks.

First week and my daughter loves school. She's been smiling (except for math) almost the entire time and works to get everything done just so we can do extra science!

My triumph actually isn't currently my daughter's triumph.   My triumph is that I made her take a grade of 68% on exponents (she knows them VERY well) and the power of 10.   

She made numerous mistakes just because she was doing long divisions/multiplications in her head instead of just writing an occasional problem.

So, when she got the 68%... I didn't let her fix it and change her grade any.     I actually feel that's a triumph for me to not help her do better.

You know, I had to do that with Missie and it worked.

I'm not sure if it worked on Kaycee yet.   It was only two of her worksheets so far, and her tests are so short that she only makes 2-3 careless mistakes on them and is still earning B's on them.  

She's the type of kid that unless it REALLY makes her uncomfortable, she just shrugs off negative results. She is VERY difficult to discipline and "train up" because of this.   Things have to get REALLY bad before she cares enough to change her behavior. 

Wish me luck on my follow through on this... because she HAS to start caring about EVERY problem being correct and done well for her to really be successful in high school and college courses.
