So, how is homeschool year going so far?

Happy November! Happy Fall!
How many of us are glad that Halloween is behind us and we can move forward into hopefully a candy-free world?LOL
We are 2.5 months into our school year and so far, I have to say... it seems to be one of our better ones! Yep, I know, I just jinxed it.... I will check back next week and let you know!!HEHE
I think our biggest fight has been a meltdown TWICE over a pencil! Yep, a pencil.... a freaking mechanical pencil. WE have a whole jar of them. SAME EXACT kind but younger brother gets up earlier and does school, then when older brother gets up.... he does school and younger goes into their room to have game time. He leaves his computer there and the pencil he was using on the table.... rather than get one out of jar... older brother takes it and uses it. Apparently that is the WRONG thing to do.... it results in a insane fight between them. Acting like a bunch of 3rd and 4th graders instead of 11th and 12th graders!
Told them if they didn't straighten it out, I would move them down to third grade curriculum and fourth grade curriculum. If you act like one, maybe you need to do the schoolwork like one and solves that problem!
Quit arguing over a PENCIL!

Ummmm, needless to say.... they did NOT like that comment. What an insult. SHEESH MOM!

They are doing GREAT in their Time4Learning high school! OMG! Best year EVER!

Oldest son is ACTUALLY getting 90% on average on his MATH! Granted, it is pre-Algebra but hey... whatever works for him! Mom is rooting for him, while keeping it low key..... you know how it is with teenagers! :D

I do want to expand our online science program! LOVE what they are doing this year, Biology but we still have this great and EXPENSIVE kit Grandma bought them years ago. Before they are too old and move on, I want to be able to use it and do some great learning and fun and blow something UP!LOL

So, how is YOUR homeschool year going so far?
Hope GREAT!
Happy Homeschooling!

I am a bit of worried about my 9yo ‘s writing expertise and spelling, although he has increased over the yr. He has made first-class strides in narration and French (oddly enough!). And we discovered that he's very musical this year!I would like to be able to motivate their man or woman Bible be trained time. We do family time, but I would like whatever that helps them to learn it and be taught on their own homepage.I nonetheless have these ‘Are we doing ample?’ moments repeatedly. And that i do repeatedly want we had been preserving better track of all that we're doing and that my older youngsters had some form of ‘guidelines’ to work from. However I must admit that they're fairly studying, so i'm seeking to calm down :-).
