Homeschooling - 11.5 Weeks In

   Okay, so I obviously didn't post this up yesterday like I was supposed to. I ended up spending yesterday dealing with two sick kids, a Mutt that was home from work, and my mom who spent the day at my house. So yeah. I might have been a little bitty bit busy. Just maybe...
   Anyway, this weekend Zoko finished up "The Outdoor Girls In A Winter Camp" (book 4) and started reading "The Outdoor Girls In Florida" (book 5). So far she likes the series. :) She also resumed reading "Wishbone Unleashed In Space" by Alexander Steele... We managed to cover one more Latin lesson, which we have rescheduled. We will now be spending a full three days on each lesson. Day one will be the lesson; day two will be writing the vocabulary in her personal Latin-English dictionary; and day three will be doing her own written translations of the entire lesson... So far that plan seems to be more suited than our previous attempts at covering everything in one day. Each step takes about 1-1.5 hours, which works well for her. Here it is, grade 2, progess report 10...
