In my life this week…
It’s been a few weeks since I have done one of these. I just keep forgetting to check in and report. But this week we got our first report card for high school. And it was a doozy….
In our homeschool this week…
We ended our first quarter of high school and I printed out a report card. Chandler asked if I could not only print out the letter grade, but the percentages as well. He wanted to know where he truly was in each subject. Once he got his report card, he proceeded to question each and every grade. He wanted to know why he got the percentage he did in each subject. It really cracked me up, since his lowest grade was an A-.
Here is a rundown of Chandler’s report card:
American Government A
American History I A+
High School Grammar A+
Introduction to Literature A
Algebra I A
Integrated Physics & Chemistry A-
Latin I A
Chandler was really pleased with his report card. I told him he needs to be proud of his hard work, because he has worked really hard for those grades. It has been really important to him to get A’s in each subject. I am glad he is taking his education so seriously.
The only grade I didn’t list on his report card was his Seminary grade. That comes from his Seminary teacher. I got a letter in the mail this week and he got an A+ for that subject. I talked about that letter in my gratitude post on Saturday.
I am inspired by…
My son’s passion for learning. He is always trying to learn more and do better. I can learn a lot from him about learning and striving for doing your best.
My favorite thing this week was…
Getting the letter in the mail from Chandler’s Seminary teacher. It was just one of those moments that you are thrilled to be the parent of your child.
Things I’m working on…
I am trying to do NanoWrimo again this year. I really want to win this year. I am having a really great time writing my story and it has proven to be a great stress relief. I am glad I am working to fit it in this year.
I’m grateful for…
My Gratitude Challenge that I am hosting again this year. It is really a lift to my spirits to concentrate on those things that I am thankful for. I am loving looking for all my many blessings. It is better to concentrate on those blessings instead of thinking of all I don’t have and think I need. The Lord knows best. This challenge strengthens my faith in Him.
I also think it is a great way to prepare for the season of Giving. By concentrating on our blessings, we are more spiritually prepared to give during the Christmas season.
