Some Thoughts

  • Today Grace sent in all her information and drawing to the big contest that Google is sponsoring. Hubby and Grace have been handling it all but I think the name of the contest is Doodle 4. The theme is "What You Want to Be When You Grow Up". Of course Grace wants to do something creative so her Google template was all about drawing, painting, and anime. Lots of great prizes are available if you win, even at the state level.
  • At my wits end with math. Not looking forward to it again in the morning. Half the concepts Grace doesn't keep in her brain. Always seem to be reviewing and not making much progress with new concepts. Looking forward to purchasing Teaching Textbooks 7th grade for next school year and just sitting her in front of a computer and letting it do all the teaching.
  • Helped hubby with painting of the Alice and Wonderland set tonight. Still so much to do. All of it should be up by mid March to practice with.

Won't that be exciting if she wins!? Sorry math is frustrating. Reading with the little man is our frustrating thing. See you this afternoon!

I hope Grace wins; how exciting for a child to be recognized for their artistic abilities.

We got Saenz Teaching Textbooks and will be getting him level 6 soon. He likes the program though he is having trouble understanding fractions so, I am going to have to come up with a better teaching method for him.

I hope Bella is recovering.

Take care,
Mal

Hi,
We made the switch mid-year to Teaching Textbooks 6 because of my frustrations also- and it was the best decision I've made! You won't be disappointed! Well worth the money :)
