The trial for K3's TPR was adjourned until October. There is nothing more to say on that, except please pray. Thanks!
We will be starting summer school soon (as in, next week). Summer school at the Shan Clan Manor consists of crafts, games, music, and a few academic subjects based on what each child needs to brush up on before the next year of school begins. For Hunter this will be geography and math and typing, and for Kaleigh it will be reading (although she is doing VERY well with her reading) and writing and math.
As I mentally plan for this, I have inevitably begun thinking about beginning school in the fall, and I have to say, it struck me yesterday that I have had it pretty easy with Hunter these last two years. This year I will have a pre-preschooler, a first grader, and a seventh grader.
I am definitely going to have to kick the discipline level up a notch. Or seven. I may even find myself buying - GASP! - a lesson planning book. EEEP!
I'm also going to do some searching to see if I can any curricula for certain subjects, like social studies and science, that have lessons that can be taught to different age groups but worksheets geared to the different ages. Might be a pipe dream.
Well, off to start breakfast and enjoy a day at home before starting up with all the chaos!
