Blogging Evolution and Homeschooling

As we continue on our homeschool journey, so will this blog have to evolve and change.  I have noticed as my kids get older, there is less to blog about, as far as our homeschool goes.  So, I will be veering away from our personal journey to add other educational posts, that I either find interesting or near and dear to our personal journey.

First, DJ is doing awesome with his 3 FLVS school classes.  At first I was nervous, but he has adjusted, and his grades are awesome, even in Geometry.  He really does not like Math!

As I had previously stated I was extremely ill in Dec, that the after effects went right through January. Now the lengthy puzzle must be completed to find out why.  2 years ago my mom was in a horrible car accident.  We spent a lot of time helping her rehab.  This hurt Caitlin in some ways, and helped her in others.  As we try to put the puzzle together for me, I don't want her to get behind.  So, we have had to adjust some of our extracurricular activities, they aren't happy but it is only for a few weeks, to catch up and make sure she is on track.

I also would like to return to work, even if it is just prn.  So, I am studying my options for that as well.  2 years away from nursing was a nice break, but I think I am ready to get back in.

I was going to share some World History links we are using, but apparently I didn't save them on this computer.  So, I will just share one of the last videos we watched.  DJ will be taking the CLEP in the Summer.  If he does well we will pursue more of that option.

More Changes

This has been an interesting school year, so far for us.  Being sick from Christmas and a lot of January, did not set us back, but it did make me think a lot about the future.  While I still am not certain what caused the incident, the puzzle pieces are falling into place, and hopefully it won't be as serious as I feared.  I was hoping to already be back in the work place, but until it is decided that I will not be needing labs, and test, with Dr visits, frequently, I just think it is better to wait.  My kids, and husband have been wonderful, as well as friends, and family.  It is scary when you are young to anticipate a serious illness.  Learning experiences abound, for all of us, and people say homeschool kids get no experience with life.  Ha, we are living life everyday, real life, not drama life!

DJ decided this past week that he wanted to do Chemistry and Geometry on FLVS, rather than with me.  I actually think this was a good decision.  I do not understand Geometry.  I mean I can get through it and probably get an A, if the formula is right in front of me.  But, to teach it, it just wasn't working.  Though we tried several resources, he just felt due to the time issue of being in 11th grade it was his best option.  Chemistry is just really hard, and a lot of info, again he felt it was better to have an actual teacher he could have access to.  I completely agreed with him, and was proud of him for taking the initiative.  So, he is in both classes on FLVS now.

Nothing new with Caitlin except for Drama, which she is really liking.  I am proud of her for stepping way out of her comfort zone to try something new.
