We had our first day of school of the new school year. It was probably one of our best first days ever. All three kids were ready to start school early. I don’t think that’s ever happened.
Greg, the 13 year old, has a habit of being difficult and refusing to do his school work. Today, he told me he made a new year’s resolution (It was OK to make a new year’s resolution since it was the first day of the school year). He was going to do his school work everyday. I’m thinking this is good. Maybe he’s growing up and we won’t have as many struggles this year. Then he added with a smile, "when I feel like it."
My youngest did her first lesson with Teaching Textbooks on the computer. She loves it and got every problem correct. She says it’s much better than last year’s math.
And my oldest, he survived his first day of high school. He completed everything and is ready to tackle day 2.
