We had another good week of schooling. We didn’t start quite as early as I had planned, but we still did all start together. I’m thinking of tweaking our start time a little so my oldest, who is a night person, can get a little more sleep. I’m still undecided on that, so I will continue with my target start time of 8:30.

My younger son took the Woodcock-Johnson test this week. I was not surprised at the poor results, just discouraged. But I have received several encouraging comments and I feel much better now. I will concentrate on helping him to learn. I don’t really know what all that will involve at this point.

We also did really well on our first week back to Tapestry of Grace. We studied Muhammad and the beginning of Islam. My older son made a terrific video about what we learned.

Today my older son had a basketball game. I spent the late afternoon doing some much needed organizing of our basement playroom.

We’ll have a shorter week next year because we’re taking off Monday since my husband has the day off.

  1. I'm sorry this week was discouraging for you. Try not to put too much stock in the test. Some kids are brilliant but poor testers, some just start slow and some have learning disabilities that cause them to start slower. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other, trying new things and it will get better.

  2. I am sorry to hear that you are discouraged. It can be hard to feel like you are not succeeding, but believe me, you are the best teacher for your son. You know his strengths and can help and encourage those, while gently working on the weaknesses. God will bless you for your faithfulness.
