Boy! We are headed into Day 4 already, and it seems we’ve barely had a chance to breathe! Wednesday morning saw us at our beloved homeschool choir practice! My oldest has the best part in “Yellow Submarine” (the nasally echo!)! My daughter scored a solo at the oft-overlooked beginning of “Over the Rainbow.”
In the afternoon, my oldest began guitar lessons with one of the (very talented!) guys in the Young Adult group at church. That evening was our usual Bible study at the church building.
Today I had an interview for my radio show, then a two-hour staff meeting…followed by an afternoon of schooling at home (for once!). No worries about that “when do they get to socialize with other kids” nonsense here!
My daughter just finished the first tragedy in the Island of the Blue Dolphins. I was worried about it (this comes from the woman, who as a child had to be dragged out of the movie theater screaming, “Run, Bambi! Run!”) but all for naught. She has lived through difficulty and tragedy in her young life, before joining our family via adoption, so maybe I worried even more…but she seems okay so far.
My oldest loves Math, which makes his ADD/mathphobic mom very happy! My youngest, though still having issues with reading (vastly improved though!), is also very good at math and had a great day with telling time. My friend, who is a resource specialist, also hipped us to a fantastic (and free!) resource that has been a tremendous help: Recording For the Blind & Dyslexic.
Tomorrow is another long stretch with no outside classes, so we might be able to catch our collective breaths!
