Today is the last day of school here....... after 14 months of home schooling it's over!! The lil one got permission from the teacher to organise an end of year party. Believe it or not - she wrote a proposal and presented it to the teacher 2 weeks ago. It was in point form! and clearly identified what everyone should/could do....... the kids were to dress in nice clothes..... find a special snack like popcorn or chips or something good - the teacher was to find a movie and music AND the lil one's job was to make sure everyone had a good time. (small smile) I honestly think she's been around me too long.
Yesterday her report card came home........ and she aced it!! All her marks either stayed the same or went up. The only glitch was her french - it went down. For the record mother - who is bilingual - was supposed to be helping her with her french. This morning I did some research and found an app that I'll be downloading to her tablet ... a fun app full of games to teach beginner's french. The lil one is barely working at grade level - she's gonna struggle next year. Someone has to help her ya know? and I AM the wicked stepmother... shrug.
We celebrated the end of the year last night with take away supper....... I printed a certificate that said "(name) survived 14 months of home schooling"........ and we gave her the Harry Potter lego.........
Today is the last day of Sir Steve working from home....... he 'graduated' too..... (grinning)
come September she's back on the school bus and back in class!!
Now we're doing the happy dance ...........
