My goodness, what a day Bean had! I took her to school this morning at 7:20. She went to the flag pole as instructed and wasn’t on the list for a first period class. So the staff directed her to the cafeteria where she sat for 3 hours listening to disturbing boy conversations. At 11:20 she called me to tell me to come pick her up. Apparently by the time I got to the van, backed it out and got 12 feet down the road, they had it straightened out. She sent me a text message to say never mind. While waiting in the counselor’s office she ate her lunch. I was so proud of her because she stuck up for herself and let them know that she wasn’t leaving until the counselor returned.
She was also very direct about the classes she wanted. She told them that she wanted geometry instead of algebra and she also got honors biology which is good for her future in nursing. Today the only class that she made it to was gym. She won’t be able to participate at all in gym and I am going to request that her physical therapy count for P.E. Who knows if they will do it but it can’t hurt to ask.
Bean was exhausted and worn out, but all in all, it worked out and she has her classes.
Berry and I had a great day considering that we had to do two math lessons and two sections of science to make up for my scheduling mistake. I forgot that I was going to do those yesterday! We had a great day though, the curriculum that I chose for this year is exciting and really great for keeping her interest. She finally understands multiplication. We chose Math-u-see this year and she understands it better already. She is very hands on and gets the concept so much better being able to build and handle the math. I am also excited about the history, language arts, and bible course. Everything ties together with a theme. The first unit is courage and we are reading a really old book, “Call it Courage” by Armstrong Sperry. The really nice thing about the reading is that my Kindle is reading it to us! Our science is Apologia and we love this program for science. It is creation based and this year we are studying the oceans and all of God’s creation in the water. Over all we had a fun day and we were focused even in the heat.
A first for me, home schooling just one. I can’t wait to see what God does in our families this school year. Berry and I need to build a closer relationship and God opened the door to do just that. Bean needed the door opened for her to advance into adulthood. Those prayers were really answered through all of this!
