Back to School 2017

One of them was VERY excited. The other one just "meh".

Regardless of their feelings on the first day, these two are still very grateful for their "new" school. This is our third year at Summit Learning Charter, a local public/homeschool hybrid. The kids take all of their main courses online, from the dining room table, with me as a Learning Coach, three days a week. Two days a week, they are able to take live classes on campus with their friends, giving them what I feel is the best of both worlds.

This year, the start of Middle School for the eldest, has been deemed "boring and hard and not as much fun as fifth grade". His learning curve is a bit steeper now, but he's still knocking it out of the park with his grades (if not with his speediness; late assignments are becoming more normal than this Learning Coach cares to admit).

The Fourth grader is now, and has always been, all about the social time. She has to work at school, but it doesn't seem to phase her too much, because the reward of time with friends outweighs the work by a long shot.

I'm not going to be able to keep them little for very much longer.
