Week 1 with the high schoolers: WHAT A BLESSING!!!

Well, week one for the girls was very productive... well mostly!!!!!
We did a lot of tweaking.  By Wednesday their schedule and lesson plan format had changed, and by Thursday, I had returned their language arts program and ordered a new one.  We are going with Easy Grammar for 9th grade since their English 1 credit will come from their literature part of My Father's World.  And can I just say one more time THAT I LOVE MFW!!! 

The girls also love Teaching Textbooks ALgebra 1 which is a shocker because neither are strong in math. They have also enjoyed their Apologia Physical Science - with 2 successful experiments the first week.

They will finish their first paper on Monday, an argumentative paper.  

Bailey argued that SoBe water is better that Vitamin water...    


and Sydney argued that Crayola products are better than Roseart.


We had such a great week that Thursday we skipped our morning break and took an early lunch to a sushi and Hibachi  grill. 

It was a great way to end a great week.  We even shared Tempura Fried ice cream for dessert!!!

What a blessing to have this opportunity.  I hope I feel the same way next week once I add the boys!!!!!  My little Alec is a tough cookie, but I know God is faithful, and through this time, we can bring Him glory.  My prayer is that at the end of this venture, I will be more like Christ and my children will desire to live their lives to honor and glorify God and that the fruits of the Spirit will be evident in all our lives.

Here are some pics of our week:

We did a lot!!!...  and had fun too!!!

Bailey is getting better every day! 
 Praise the Lord for Sydney!!!!


Happy Homeschooling,
