Avery’s PreK Year

Avery, Age 5, PreK

Avery, Age 5, PreK

Avery was a school kid this year and attended Goddard 1/2 days for four days a week. He had his Goddard graduation which was bitter sweet. He had gone there for three years and had friends there, but academically, the teachers really did not know what he could do and he never talked there. Over the summer, we worked on transitioning him into thinking about being a homeschooler.

Aaron’s Fourth Grade Year

Aaron, 4th Grade Year

Aaron’s Fourth Grade was a Tough One. But we got through it and learned a lot and I guess you need to flop around and fail sometimes to figure out how to succeed. It will forever be known as the year of public school. I did not even get a picture of the kids this year. We probably went more places and read more books than are listed here. But this is as much as I remember.
