Weekly Homeschool Wrap-Up - Take Two

So I am jumping up and down



My son said things like, “This is awesome” and “I can’t wait until tomorrow” ABOUT MATH.

I am seriously hearting ALEKS Math program.

I am pretty sure I teared up several times this week just thinking about it.

My week galloped peacefully because of ALEKS. It was a week like none other. 

My hopes are flying that this week will be duplicated again and again, thanks to online Math.

ALEKS this week I am thankful for you and telling everyone I know.

The other small but amazing change this week

was adding agendas of what was to be accomplished, gently tapped to each desk.

I was unaware how fun crossing off items could be.

I was amazed at how focused we were, them and me.

We got more done then usual.

It was like a paper workbox system.

I am thankful for how smooth the days were because of a few extra minutes during my planning.

I sit here encouraged.  I can not wait until next week.
