Good morning, blogger friends! It is a beautiful day today! It's been pretty rainy over the weekend and very gloomy, but it looks like it's cleared up just in time to start a new school week.
I just wanted to do a little update on the school. We've finished our first 9 weeks of class and of course, it feels like time has flown! The kids are doing extremely well this year. We couldn't ask for better. They are doing awesome on their weekly exams, no one has had to redo a lesson. They are plowing ahead in math and English - we are a couple of very happy teachers!

Another fun bit of news - we've acquired another student! Our very own Mr. Austin! He'd been homeschooling before, but the decision was made that he'd join school to be on our schedule and be with the other boys. He's being doing really well and lately, has been pretty motivated in his work. We finally got him a uniform a couple weeks ago and that was one part he was not very happy about! However, he looks pretty sharp and I think he's adjusted to the white shirt and slacks thing.

Every Wednesday, the kids read an assigned Bible story and make questions. They quiz each other the next day are able to give out candy for correct answers. They love trying to come up with complicated questions to try and stump each other! If they can accomplish this, they themselves get the point.
|Austin is a part of this as well and does so well with his Spanish! He writes his questions in English and translates them into Spanish as he goes.|
