As many of you know, we have started a new journey in our life!! Staying home teaching is a totally different lifestyle. It is nice to be able to stay in our p.j.'s on Mondays and Fridays for school. On those days, I only have Nathan and Mari Morgan You would think I would be able to do things around the house while they are working. But, with my kids that is hardly the case. Nathan really has trouble staying on task. We are working on it. Most of my time is spent keeping him working. His assignment sheet is very long, but very god stuff! MM is very independent, and does most of her work on her own. However, right now her work is mostly review, so I am sure she will require more attention in the near future. I do love being with them, and teaching them, but it just doesn't feel natural yet.... We still need to get into a groove.
My classes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays are going pretty well. For the most part, they are well behaved, but I have a lot of" bosses, jokers, and talkers. :) They are just kids! I have to remind myself of that. I am still striving to get out of "school mode". I am so used to teaching and cramming for a test. With this program, there is so much more freedom. I feel like I really can give each student an individualized experience. Very supportive parents is also a HUGE plus. I love that I have no deadlines, or teacher observations. :) My struggle right now is I am trying to find a balance between what they do at home, and what they do here at school. We are getting there, and my parents are really giving me lots of encouragement. I am so thankful to God for giving me this opportunity. It is difficult, but it is getting easier each week! ;)
