Help From Dad
22/04/2008 § 3 Comments
lately we have been doing all we can to keep on track with our schooling so we can get an early start on 9th grade this summer. that means a lot of time at home and a lot of ‘nose to the grindstone’ time. i’m pushing Love a bit more than i normally would and requiring more from her the closer we get to 9th grade. if i start ramping up now, i’m hoping it will be an easier transition once we start to really have things count and when the requirements for mastery are greater. that’s the plan anyway. she’s complained a little at times but i know she knows it’s necessary. i also know she understands it WILL get harder and i think she’s becoming more content with where she’s at for the time being. 🙂
Love really has been doing great at trying to stay on task this year. i help her when she needs (and when I can) and when i can’t, dad steps in. well, ok, he helps continually with Math and Science. i am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband who takes time out of his day to help with school. he doesn’t criticize me for not being fluent in those subjects either! he’s usually pretty patient and tries to make learning fun for the both of them. it’s been a great bonding time and i think they are actually enjoying eachothers company. isn’t that sweet?!
