New things.

The first week of school is over. The boys are doing school this year online. It has been a week of meetings with their teachers, expectations, rules, and new ways to do their work.
They love it so far!
I’m excited for them.
I have a 13 year old who was miserable last year at school. He has been unhappy in the classroom for a long time. Basically, he wants to do his work and read. That’s all. He is happy and smiling and chatty. It’s like a whole new person has grown.
My youngest son stayed in trouble at school the past two years because he would finish his work quickly and become a distraction to the other students who were still working. With that no longer being an issue, he can work and move onto something else.
We are adding in extra PE time and extra reading time during their day. There has been miles of walking and basketball games all week.
So far, we are all loving the new system of education and thankful for K12 that we have this option.

Choices!

So I got an email this morning from K12 with all of club choices the kids have for the school year. Wow!
They can choose four clubs from a huge list. They are broken down into categories like ELA, Languages, STEM, College & Career, Art, Community, hobbies, etc.
Thing 1 is doing robotics, Lego and debating about which language to join.
Thing 2 is planning to go the science route and join clubs about reptiles and then joining the French language club.
I’m so happy that they have these opportunities with online school! We are looking forward to a great school year.

So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.
