Summer School


Hullo there! Well, I have disabled comment moderation. So Gramma, you can leave a comment and it will show up automatically. The reason why it always seemed like you couldn't leave comments is because I had to approve of them first. I suppose I'll still be able to delete unwanted comments, but at least now one will know if they really left me a comment or not.

Today I went teaching again. It seems to me that things are really getting into a routine. Just in time for summer, right? I'll still go there over the summer, but only about once a week. They don't mind the help (after all, eight kids is a handful for any one grownup, right?), and I think I would miss them if I didn't go anymore. The kids were glad to hear that I would still come over the summer... I guess they don't mind me too much. Today Josiah (8) and Rebekah (6) were actually fighting over who got to read the book that we started. They both wanted to read more. We started reading The Boy and the Lion (I think that's what it's called) on Friday, and I'm surprised at how much they seem to be enjoying reading it. I have to help them with fewer and fewer words. It's great to see how far they've come in reading over these past three or so months. I think I'll miss them in the fall when Elizabeth, their other teacher, comes back from NJ to teach them through the next school year. But God always keeps you busy doing something, and I'm sure he's got something good planned for me next year :) (Not yet...)

I never thought of having someone else come and teach my kids if I decided to home school. I guess I always thought it would be me doing the teaching, and I don't think I would have the patience or the know how for the special ed that is needed for my sweet Steven.

It's nice that you're doing that by the way. I'm sure you're a wonderful teacher!

Cute picture. I'm glad you have come to love the kids you spend time with each week. It will be a great memory for all of you and you may have some great friends for a long time to come.

Yay! my comment poped up! ... well I am writing it now so it hasn't yet... but that's beside the point.
hmm... Maybe you could come to Germany and visit us next year. I doubt it though, keep it in mind. =)

Wow. A trip to Germany really would be sweet.... but that is kinda doubtful. But hey, one never knows, right?
