My way of thinkin'...

Modgirl is so quick to catch on. I don't know why I ever doubted her. She picked up right away on the idea of not having to do things the public school way. She is even telling her friends that they should homeschool so that they could learn the things they want to learn, too. Wouldn't that be nice?
Of course she realizes the importance of studying the things that will get her into college, and that she will do. She is not looking forward to American lit or American history (kinda down on the good ol' USA right now... where does she get that, I wonder?) but she knows she's gotta do it. She is looking very much forward to World Religions, Psychology, Biology and technology. She will also be doing Algebra II and Spanish-two more courses she will have to tolerate! So it sounds like she has about half and half of classes she looks forward to and those she knows she has to do anyway. I guess that's not too bad. Especially if we make them as fun (or painless) as possible, which I'm sure we can do. She has such a great attitude.
I don't know how I got so lucky to have such great kids. I just know I am thankful for homeschooling because it allows me to spend so much time with them, getting to know them well and build close relationships that hopefully will last a lifetime. I shudder to think that in only 3 more years Modgirl will be gone. Off to college and a life on her own. Precious little time...

OK, Superboy and JBug I get, sort of, but Modgirl?

Sounds like you're enjoying yourselves. I'll probably have some time in late August, so may come down for a visit.

She made it up herself...what can I say.
We are enjoying ourselves, but you'll never get Modgirl to admit it! She is stereotypically "bored."
We'd love to see ya! Come on down!
