                    LizardFriend95, JCU, SheWhoMustNotBeNamed, and DorothyMH, thank you so much!

                    Dorothy, I homeschooled all 7 of mine all the way through. I also taught elementary level history and language arts at a homeschool co-op for five years, tutored a different friend's son and daughter (elementary age) one year, and tutored my youngest daughter and one other student at a different co-op for their senior year. I really love it and am so excited to be digging into it again! They will be coming over every Monday, and we will study music, science, history, literature, grammar, and compostion together. I will also be helping the girl with her math, because she has dyslexia and is really struggling with it. My daughter is kind of my co-teacher, and my granddaughter will join us most of the time. (She wasn't here today.) It will be like old times around the kitchen table and on the couch.

                      That sounds amazing! Did you acquire the skills to teach all by yourself or did you have some form of training? Seriously, I'm in awe, you sound like a great mum and grandmother.

                        lofivelcro, thank you for your kind words; i am humbled.

                        I did major in elementary education in college. HOWEVER, i truly think that my best preparation was my own natural love of learning. In college i learned a lot about classroom management, how to navigate textbooks, testing methods, how to write learning objectives, and a lot of educational jargon. The way i teach in small group settings is much more relaxed and "organic."

                          It has been a very busy week: an extra preschooler every day, dogsitting and a birthday party on the weekend! I have not kept up with the Hive, but i have kept up with daily, albeit minimal, exercise.

                            Minimal exercise is still exercise.
                            Great job.
