We are into our new school year and this year we have a middle schooler in the house!! Josiah is now in 6th grade! I can't believe it! He is also only 4 1/2 in shorter than me so I'm sure he will be growing taller than me within this school year. Malachi is in 4th grade and Aliyah is in 2nd grade. Yes, Aliyah was in K last year but she has past her way into 2nd grade work this year, although she is about a middle of 3rd grade reading level. She isn't smarter than her brothers.....she just started earlier because of her desire to be like them. One thing we will be focusing on with all the kids this year is SPELLING! They all read way above their grade level and their vocabulary is great.....but their spelling....well...not so great. I've never really used much of a spelling program so far but have a few things I plan to try this year. I look forward to my 7th year of homeschooling and having my kids at home with me as we learn together and grow in our relationships together in amazing ways that being at home nurtures. It will be an exciting year! Make sure you go to the end of this post and read the kids questionnaires.....very cute!
