This has been a long, hard month. A lot going on,and nothing really accomplished. Homeschooling is just about done for the year, I had my review in mid-May and everything went well.
We are shaking things up a bit for our next school year. We are going to start our new year on July 11th. We will school for 6 weeks and then take a week’s break. I think this will help with some of the “burn-out” that has been happening over the past year. It will also enable us to have a week off at Thanksgiving, three weeks off during Advent and Christmas and another week or two at Easter. If things go as planned, then the “school-year” should be finished sometime in early in May 2012.
Mandy is finishing up her junior year and will be a senior next year. THAT seems hard to believe for me. She remains in the International Baccalaureate Program. She is surviving, but it is a very hard course of studies and many of the children are faltering this year.
We are in the midst of making some life altering decisions, so pray that we make the correct decisions for the family.
