2010-11 School Year Begins!

The week after we came home from vacation, we started our school year. This year, John Henry is in the 6th grade, Paul is in the 3rd grade, and Sam is in the 1st grade. They are all getting so big and I am so proud of them.

John Henry is now 11.5 yrs old and is in the 6th grade. He is in his 7th year of homeschooling and is such an excellent student. He works hard, he is easy to motivate, and he rarely fusses about doing his work. He loves history, does really well in math, and is constantly working on improving his reading and writing.
Paul is in the 3rd grade and is now 8 years old. He is a good student, too. His only problem is getting too involved in what he is working on and not wanting to move on to the next thing! Such a problem to have! He loves science and reading and is working hard to get better at writing. He starts cursive writing lessons next week!

Sam is now 6.5 yrs old and is in the 1st grade. He is good in all subjects so far and is advancing so fast, it is hard to keep up with him. He is enjoying writing a lot this year and is reading 2nd-3rd grade level books.

I am so proud of my boys for the students they are. We celebrated the first day of school by having breakfast at Legend's Smokehouse. It was a great start to a new year with 3 wonderful students.
