It is diffenently harder to write a post about homeschooling when your kids are in High School. I guess that is why it is so hard to find bloggers at this stage in the homeschooling journey. My kids are practically independent with the school work. My oldest doesn't need any assistance with her dual enrolled college classes and seems to be balancing work and school just fine. Now that she has a driver's license she is even able to get to some activities on her own leaving me with much more free time!
MarioFan (10th grade) is doing the majority of his work on his own with me overseeing the work and guiding him. He needs the most help with writing as that is not his strong suit.
|This is an excellent video that explains the war and how it made George Washington the leader he was during the Revolutionary War. Although it does not paint him is the greatest light when it comes to dealing with the Indians after the war:(|
|We are also doing some additional readings outside of Crash Course|
We are also trying to learning drumming!
|I had the boys decorate their bucket drums as a fun first day activity|
|As you can see my idea of decorating and theirs is very different, sigh|
|they did however enjoying learning how to hold drum stick and we are beginning to practice stick work.|
MarioFan is taking Kung Fu at Coop for his PE credit. it is a small class of just 4. MarioFan is not a huge fan of exertion so he is unsure of this activity so far, lol
Last night we got a call from one of the two colleges Firedrake applied too and they have accepted her application into their program!!! They said a letter will be arriving shortly, fingers cross that a scholarship will be offered to help us with college costs next year.
