    He’ll come along with his reading.

    I love homeschooling – every child has their own way and time to learn. I don’t think one is ahead of the other. Tim struggles with penmanship and in doing some reading online, I told Pierre I saw it can be a sign of ADHD – lol. I think for him he doesn’t need to be told that but just some extra work so I found some ideas on how to slow him down and get him to focus and we are going to work on letter formation together next week ;).

    We have been reading the Little House series and I’m soooo impressed with Laura’s character – she is 16 in the book we are reading and she teaches all week and sews all day on Saturday and THEN turns over the money to her parents joyfully! So amazing. Girls today are bumps on the log compared to her LOL.

    I have to wonder if the Queen has reigned so long BECAUSE of her strong work ethic.

    I didn’t read the article but I agree – there IS not rite of passage for teens to rebel. We must gain their hearts biblically and then the desire will be to follow God. It is a lot of work but the rewards are worth it 🙂

    • I’m not worried about Micah. I’m actually excited about all of the progress we’ve already seen.
      Learning to focus is a big one for boys. My boys have all needed to work on that to one degree or another.

        I think sometimes it is the girls, too LOL 🙂 Genevieve’s SS teacher asked her once if she “piddles” and she asked what that means and then said, “Yeah, I guess I do – my mom says that too” hahaha
