A comment I over heard my girls say this morning: "Mom looks so nice!"
Ha ha ha it's amazing how much better I look when I:
- A. Get a shower first thing,
- B. A cup of coffee (decaf),
- C. Put on office appropriate clothing. Instead of a T-shirt and shorts.
Really girls I could look this way every day but then you would have to go to public school, and day care afterwards. And A~ would probably not make as much head way as she does at home.
I love the portability of Heart of Dakota. Yes it was 2 fairly heavy bags for just the independent stuff. They were able to get school stuff done then run off an play in the kiddie section while I worked. Ahh the lure of the doll house with ALL the pieces.
I find it very very funny that all the same assignments given at home take upwards to 2 hours but after just one hour all the independent work was done in the office. LOL desire is a strong motivator. Now I did have to make dd2 review her reading as she skipped what she did not comprehend. It was a cultural thing no point of reference for her. I had to actually demonstrate the concept for her to understand it.
I'm really glad how responsible my girls were today. I love how they are becoming more and more responsible. Is not our purposes in raising children, to make them independent, lovers of God, and seekers- one who continues their education long after college is graduated-
