Last week I dutifully recorded the kids grades in a brand new notebook and had a teacher meeting with the kids. The best thing/worst thing about being your child's teacher is knowing where you helped them and where you failed them. All in all they are not just progressing in academics but in their personal growth and what I need to remember is to praise those things more. I too easily see the next thing they should master and sometimes push too hard.
However the vacation has been great! David and Sarah had a great trip with their youth group
to a Eucharistic Youth Rally and to the American side of Niagara Falls, St. Bonaventure University's Museum, Our Lady od Victory Basilica, and learned about a Blessed. Here's the video source about him. They LOVE Fr. Marek and Sr. Sophia.
You know you are a homeschooler on vacation when:
You let your kids enjoy the Muppets' take over of the Today Show (This year you can buy make your own Muppets through FAO Swartz!)
