Btw, you have a nice ecclectic mix of curric there. How long have you been HSing?
Yesterday was crazy busy for us but we finished all school work. Today we hardly have anything to do so it's mainly house cleaning day and then we're going to pick up a lil girl to spend the night for the first time. She recently started going to our church and come to find out she is homeschooled! We are really excited because, til now, we haven't had any local HS friends. My oldest dd has been praying for a bff so we're hoping that she might be an answer. She's two years younger than my dd but she's a highly advanced lil girl. In 1st grade she was 4th grade level. Which is why she is now HSed. Even socially she seems very mature. Anyway, I'm rambling! We are just excited. I'm sure most of you know that friendships are totally possible for a HS family but it does require more effort than the general PS family. And it's really nice to see God answer a lil girl's simple prayer for a friend.
Good news on Keegan and Zack doing a lttle better in the reading department. Owen is younger but just in the past week has started recognizing some of the sight words in the Reading Lesson. It's so exciting to see them "get it." And it's nice not to have to sound out "it" and "is" every. single. time.
