Smart Cookie

Bethany wants to read SO bad. She told me a few weeks ago that if I'd been having school with her everyday, she could read by now. And she is right! We've been having school off and on, okay, more off than on, since last fall.
I've just been really lax about it, because I know come this fall we will be doing Kindergarten every day. Once we start official school, the end won't be in site for years, and I just want to savor my last year.
God is really blessing me because Bethany is a fast and easy learner. She LOVES to learn and retains well. That makes it so much easier on me and in the little time that we've worked together she is reading words. I love to watch her learn, it makes her happy. She wants to have school everyday, even Saturday!

If you homeschool, I'd love to know what curriculum you like best, especially for elementary grades. I haven't decided on what we're going to use and would love to hear your thoughts.

Bethany is a quick learner and you are a natural teacher! You will do great with homeschooling. Don't sweat it, just enjoy your children. They grow up and get married all too soon.

At least she WANTS to read. My son is giving me grief in the reading department. He would rather do other things. At the rate he is going we will be doing school this summer too.

Ay Yi Yi!
