Hi there. I have some venting to do today. You all know that we are home schooling Kora. Well I have been talking to our neighbor down the street. She has been wondering how it works and such. So I have been telling her how it works and she keeps asking the same questions over and over again. Well I only have so much patience for such questions.
Well I feel sorry for her son. I have told you all about her getting custody of him back in early August again. Well anyway he's been having troubles in school and they were considering home schooling him but you have till Oct.15th to get the PI form in so I guess he's not being home schooled but he kept asking me questions and she kept countering my answers with other things like the school wont let her home school because he has special needs and such.
I think its stupid that you would do that to a child. I am sorry but if they are curious you dont counter what the person that is doing the home schooling knows when you know nothing yourself. I have learned alot from my friends here and the links thanks to Monicar.
Kora needed special education in school too but you know what now that we are home schooling her she is doing fine. Like I said yesterday its like pulling teeth sometimes but that is all kids right? I have to say she is doing loads better at home than she would be if she were in the PSS (Public School System). I enjoy learnign with her. She actually did one of her math worksheets by herself this morning without my help. I am so proud of her.
She shamed one of her friends on Sunday. We were coming home and I asked her what 9+9 was and she whipped off the answer before he could even think of the problem and he looked at her like thats not fair. LOL.. It was so funny to see the look on his face. But he's been reading for a year now so he has his strengths and Kora has hers.
Things are good though. Life seems to be back to normal or as normal as life can be with a very busy family. But I suppose I better go find something to eat or else I am going to be sorry later when Jeff comes home. We might go out for a while tonight but it depends on what time he comes home.
They had to fire one of the guys he works with because the guy was addicted to Crack Cocaine. It came back in his Urine test they do. Thankfully they never let him drive until that came back. I cant imagine the law suit they would have had if he would have gotten in an accident. Anyway he has been working up to 12 1/2 hour days to 13 hours a day. Between Monday and Tuesday he had 25 hours. Yes you read that right 25 hours in two days. Yikes huh? I just hope he doesnt wear himself down to bad doing the work he does. So life is hecktick here but we are doing what needs to be done. He comes home to a clean family and a clean house and appreciates it more than some know. Alright I am really going this time where I can go find some lunch. Talk soon to all of you. N.
