We have started our 8th year of homeschooling with a bang. We have found an amazing homeschool cooperative. It is a small group with some of the best women that I have ever met. The kids look forward to our "Monday School" all week long. We have also started a new adventure with the 4-H. The kids are currently in 2 different groups. They are hoping to start a shooting/archery club in the next year.
Dragon has grown leaps and bounds in his writing. He has enjoyed his writing class. He has decided that he would like to be a writer and chef. He wants to go to Culinary School. He has spent the past 2 weeks cooking almost every meal for our family. As he gets older I am starting to see more of the young man that he is becoming. I am completely impressed.
Tracker..what can I say? His reading has improved tremendously. The dyslexia is still an issue. Dyslexia is more of a speed bump now. I am proud of his progress. He is thrilled with the writing class that he is taking at the co-op. He willingly sits down and reads his book. He now prefers to read his books on the computer. He has found a new passion in lawn care. He is soaking up everything hunting related. He has been going hunting with his dad every chance he can.
Squirrel is no longer a little girl. She has become a tween...save me now. It is not all that bad. Her passion for art and animals has grown deeper. This summer we had the opportunity to observe a sea turtle nest inventory. It was one of the greatest experience of my life. Squirrel was able to see her favorite animal of ALL time. We saw 7 sea turtle hatchlings crawl into the ocean. It was wonderful. She has found a new interest in cooking. She use to be our little baker, but has switched to cooking. We never leave the library with less than 10 cookbooks at a time.
That is our school year in a nutshell.
