Well, our first day of high school was a success....I think!!! :)
I started my daughter and her friend yesterday. I wanted to get a jump on things before I tackled my son and his friend (the 7th graders). They start next week.

We have a schedule, but it is more of a guide. Some things they do together, some things not. I want to give them freedom as long as they can be productive, but the minute they step out of line....WATCH OUT!! "Yeah right" is what you're thinking if you know me. They felt the same way!!! LOL...
|Can't you tell...they are scared to death!!!|
This is what happened when I was trying to look something up for them!!!
|Thank goodness for the Physical Science lab kit. It was worth every penny. And it was a LOT of pennies!!!|
|The experiment required stripping a wire!!! Have mercy!!!...|
|and a 9-volt battery!!!....|
|then taping the wires to the battery!!!|
|then putting the other end of the wires in baking soda water...|
|and it bubbled!!! WOO HOO??!!|
|1st experiment - check|
I love our curriculum choices and am excited more and more each day.
My daughter wasn't/isn't so excited about homeschooling in high school, but God has been faithful, and my prayer is that as she grows spiritually, she'll understand and appreciate my choices. She enjoyed herself yesterday, but every time she realized it, she stopped!!!
I want to do better in regards to our devotional/prayer time. That is first on my list to tweak!!
Here are my boys so you can see all the members of Reed Academy!
