LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!

Today the kids and I finished up their last day of school. I wanted to take pictures of them ripping up their empty test books or taking their final exams, but the camera was in Daddy's car at work. So I waited until we all went to a backyard barbacue birthday party this evening to snap a shot of them.
The kids have done well this year. Sarah is THRIVING with the DVD program we are doing with her. She has achieved good grades all throughout this 7th grade year, and more importantly to us, her character is without reproach. She is also retaining the information she is learning so all the A's she earns aren't just "empty" (even in her least favorite subject, Science). Finishing up 3rd grade with Noah, he still has some academic areas that need work. Memorizing those multiplication and division tables, and not being so afraid of long division. His reading is great, and his grammar is perfect. He is a sweet young man, and is a very musically talented. He will sometimes practice his piano for 2 or 3 hours and I will need to PULL him away to do his "real" school. Micah was working on mostly pre-K fun sheets that are way too easy for him. He will start "formal" Kindergarten in the fall, and so this was just a lot of phonics and reading to him. Which he loves.
As the 2007/2008 school year ends for our little Clover Academy we wish you a very safe. happy, and blessed summer!
