The Awesome Part

The awesome part about home schooling is this:

Just when I think I cannot possibly do this long term, cool stuff like this happens, and I realized how much they have learned. And I get proud, of them, of me. I taught them how to do this... pretty heady stuff.

I love the drama at the end of each reading! We are so proud of you too!!!! Dont for get the value of these videos for the kids. Its good for readers to listen to them selves read on tape or video. maybe wait a few months and have them compare their current fluency to this one on tape. not that they will know the word fluency, but they might be able to make a comparison. keep working hard! they have grown and blossomed in amazing ways!

Stuff like that frequently makes me almost want to cry. Seeing Kai and Noe reading, seeing them do math above their grade level, seeing them understand something. It's all great! It totally makes up for the days I want to throw in the towel. Keep up the good work! You are doing a great job, even if it sometimes seems so hard you can't do it!
