Crystal Trees (Weekend Reflection)

When winter arrived I can't wait for spring and summer. My family lives in the mountain and most of the time this was my everyday setting. I only amuse myself while taking pictures. Have a great three days weekend everyone. Happy Memorial day.

The picture was taken by me sometime in January 2015.

Ah Paper Works

Yup, writing the year end report for my children. They are almost done with all their grade level lessons. They only have 2 or three lessons, then the rest are all the next grade levels.

Yes, they already started on the next grade level. When they finish their grade level Math or LA, I start them right away on the next grade level Math or LA. I would like them to finish earlier when they get to High School. Plus, when we have some urgent things to do, we can easily take a day or so off learning and not worry if they are going to finish on time.

The best part is I only have to change a few things on the old reports that I mailed in. Like name, dates, & how my child did on the subjects. I have 8th grade, 6th grade, 5th grade, & 3rd grader. The oldest I have to do from scratch. With the rest, I just edit what I already have. Makes everything easier because they are using the same curriculum that the older used.

I don't like it that I have to send in a new affidavit every year. The cost of notarizing and packaging all the children works' adds up. New Jersey home school rules I liked the most. But you will caught me dead residing in New Jersey.

I hate the Educational Freedom in this country. Let the haters begins. :P

Nope, I'm still alive and kicking. Very busy with un-schooling and things around the house. My children are almost done with their grade level and will continue on the next grade level pretty soon. We still live in the same place we were last year. Actually, we marked one year last October and not even a month after we lost my FIL from heart attack with the help of his wife having dementia and being half mental.

DH is moving on. He was devastated about the whole thing. Not everyday he wanted to blame his mother, however, how can you blame a person with no logical brain functioning.

Anyway, we are doing fine. Not a day past that DH wishes that his father is still around. But he is dealing with it somehow.
