    Just reading your prep makes me hungry to learn, and I was the laziest student ever!
    Perhaps it was because in public schools, we never really got a syllabus or a finishing goal, or an idea of how all of these disparate topics really did tie together in real life.

      and if ANYTHING changes at school for Sierra..She too will be homeschooled.  I have seen how homeschooling is light years ahead,,if the parents have time and knowledge to embark.  You do.  Bit and Draco are lucky.

      •  I think Sierra would thrive in a home school (2+ / 0-)

        environment. It would give you  and her SO much more flexibility and room to expand her knowledge beyond learning to pass the FCAT.

      I enjoy the prep as well. And of course the kids have their good days and their bad days, as any other kid does. I'm hoping to be able to do more independent projects with Bit as she gets older. Draco is.. well he needs a set syllabus, and he really needs the one on one to get larger projects done, otherwise they overwhelm him. But we're going to work on shorter independent projects through the year, with a lot of support and planned time.
