We sent her to school today, not very confident that she will make the right choices, but we have to let her try. We did a little friendly confrontation, with her two best friends putting in their thoughts too. Hopefully we woke her up. Teenagers are frustrating!!
It’s not that I don’t want to homeschool her… I accepted the fact that I could end up teaching 9th grade… but it’s that we WANT her to be successful where she’s at. If there are still problems, she’s outta there. While we are keeping her accountable (and we have kids helping us do the same), my main concern is still getting my boys home again, for good.
I’m off to WW’s this morning and then to help out in D2’s class. Oh how it sickens me to sit there putting together busywork for his teacher, while I listen to the time that is wasted on…. NOTHING… it’s just all so pointless!! So much of what they do is transitioning from one thing to another. Add in some talking down to them, a lot of garbage that they have masquerading as math, and you’ve got a typical first/second/third grade classroom in my sons’ school! I dread going. I don’t like it. I hate being there. But in order to know what is going on in their classrooms, and this is the only way I can do it. So I make copies, laminate, cut apart acorns and number them 1-20. Oh gee. Arg. Shoot me now.
I’ll post my BotB stuff when I get home!
