It's that time of year. When the kids have ants in their pants and they're ready for the learnin' to be over. Even homeschoolers have field day.
A day to forget the books, blow off steam and have some fun.
Of course field day wouldn't be complete without water balloons.
It's the time of year to reflect back and think about how much we've learned and how far we've come. Homeschoolers don't have generalized tests to measure a child's progress. We don't need them. We just don't move forward until the concept is mastered. We know what they know. We see the progress every day. If something doesn't stick we go over it again. Practice. Practice. Practice.
Thinking back I know we've accomplished a lot this year. Unfortunately, it seems we're going to have to go back over that little concept called reading. *sigh*
If I only had a nickle for every dish I've had to remove...
