Jean in Wisc Posted January 26, 2012 Share Posted January 26, 2012 (edited) Just thought I'd drop in and give you some encouragement. My baby graduates this year--you know, the one who didn't read until 4th grade, was suppose to be dyslexic, struggled his way through several math programs because nothing "worked", and couldn't write a paragraph that made any sense. He got his ACT scores back, and although many of you have kids with higher scores, I'm rather proud of his 28. His math was a 27--thanks to Teaching Textbooks, which made even pre-calc make sense. He's made it most of the way through D'angelo's Composition in the Classical Tradition this year and is reading Shakespeare on his own for fun. He is Cadet Major in the Civil Air Patrol (hoping to get Cadet Colonel before summer ends), and has the lead role in the homeschool drama troupe's play--he's Sherlock Holmes. :D Keep on keepin' on, folks. Not all kids are going to get to the top of the mountain that they are climbing, but when we homeschool, we have the chance to try different programs, look for outside activities that help them stretch and grow, ask for help from so many people who know more than we do, and be there, cheering them on. We are giving them the best that we can, and that is enough. From here they can go out and make a world for themselves. You can do it!
