Yep, a big announcement that is about eights weeks late...can you guess? Bet you won't! Well, if you guessed that the kids are being homeschooled you are correct! All summer I had been researching and studying about homeschool. And we had been praying...LOTS!!! So the middle of July we did a little school off and on. The kids were a little freaked out at first, and once they believed they could do school at home they were okay. I did not tell them that it might be permanent though.
Anyway, the more and more I taught, the more and more I LOVED it! We started to do it on a very regular basis and the kids were going along with the flow...then a couple of weeks before school started we told them that they would have school at home. Srecko had the hardest time with the concept...still sometimes brings it up. Daddy named our school Fun To Learn School and the kids love it.
On the first day of regular school, we went to McDonalds after breakfast and got ice cream cones and drove through the parking lot of their school...and I said, where do you think that the kids in school right now want to be? They all said eating ice cream..I think I got my point across, don't you?
Well, it is now about two and a half months into school and my kids love it...and me? Let me just say I can hardly stand how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!!! Even on the hard days, like today I still love it! It is such a HUGE blessing to be able to work with my kids everyday and sometimes Saturdays. That is Srecko's desire.
Let me say that the kids have done a wonderful job! They have learned so much! For example, Jovan and Kristna were learning and barely learning five spelling words a week and now they are learning about twenty words every eight days or so. Srecko is learning about the same...to see him learn new things is incredible! His whole face lights up and he smiles broader then anyone in the world. Who wouldn't want to see that everyday? Today, we learned a new phonics game and then for a boost fruit snacks were passed out. The kids thought that was great.
We have been up to other things...but mostly school. I have pictures to post and more blogging to do, but I am tired by the time the kids go to bed...so not much gets done after that. Another plus is that they can sleep in later...bed time is basically the same, but instead of Kristina getting up at 5:30am to start her neb treatments and make the bus...she now gets up a little before 7am and she is able to be ready for school and work very hard. Now you all are a little more caught up...off to bed I go!m
