You've Got to Love Homeschooling

First a quick note to let you know I am better and my mom is better also. She is getting a week's rest before going back to Emory next week for another infusion. This week has been challenging as far as school goes. Monday - to the hospital for my mom. Tuesday - I was sick. Wednesday - some school, I was still recuperating. Thursday - fine arts classes took up most the day, but managed to get some work done this afternoon. Here's were my title for this entry comes from - I was going through our books putting together lessons for tomorrow, Grace was watching me look through some new books. She swiped the Easy Grammar book I had which was for Middle - High School age kids and is downstairs right now doing lesson after lesson to prove she can do it just for fun. This is the same kid that two hours ago was fussing at me about finishing her math. Go figure!! She has already finished about 5 pages and keeps asking me to check her answers and is thrilled when she has most of them right. These are the moments you wait for when you choose to homeschool.

So glad to hear that your mom is feeling better and that you are too! I know exactly what you're talking about by those precious homeschool moments! I had a couple of those today too. My son identified a constellation in the night sky- surprised me because he's never shown an interest before. Also, my daughter is writing a short story- that I did not assign. Love those moments! God bless!:)

Indeed what a rewarding moment! My boys- had they chosen to do schoolwork just for pleasure - would have done the opposite: grammar (Italian grammar) is their least favorite subject!

Yeah for Grace! Ha Ha Ha! I have patterns for the church thing for all adults and children. You're welcome to share.

Illness in any form is never good!! Glad to hear things are looking better for all! :) I love homeschooling moments. I thrive when my kids just go through and learn things on their own. But my all time favorite is that "Ah Ha!" Moment...when something clicks and the joy spreads over their face from finally understanding something! :) Have a very wonderful weekend and stay warm!! :)
