School days...

The summer has slipped by way too fast!  Well, technically it is still summer, but when school starts it just changes.
My computer has been in the shop most of the summer.  We have a brand new computer and it has been nothing but trouble.  Marc picked it up last night and it still doesn't seem to be fixed.  They told us to bring it back in and I'm hoping they will just replace it.  I decided to do a quick post before he takes it back.  I can't figure out how to upload a picture from my phone or ipad.  The kids hog the laptops during the school year.

Thank the Lord Malachi is a very good reader now!  He is pretty independent with his work.  Myles started 1st grade and that takes a lot of my time.  Macheus is three, but thankfully he plays really well by himself.  School starting has been harder on Myles than Mac!

Mariah's last year in middle school! :(

She is completely self/computer taught.  Marc does her science with her once a week and I do her testing.  Other than that, she is pretty independent.  We tested her this past spring and she is above grade level in every area, so I guess it is working for her!

Madeline is a senior in high school, and a sophomore in college!  She did amazing last year!  I'm really hoping that she has gotten the hang of things and doesn't spend quite as much time on it this year.  Her life was consumed with school last year.  Her classes are all online and the professors are tough!  There is no slacking and they pile on the work!  She was on the President's list every quarter last year!

                    Pretty proud of this girl!

Sweet little Myles.  He is so much fun to teach.  We will be in the middle of a lesson and he will say something out of the blue.  The other day he stopped what he was doing, pinched my cheek and said, "You are so cute!"  :)

This guy has grown up SO much since last year!  He is like a sponge!  He loves watching documentaries and asks a million questions about EVERYTHING!

Wondering when that other front tooth is going to come in!  The dentist assures me that it IS in there! :)

The girls started back their piano lessons this month too.  The boys have STEM classes once a month, and we are going to try out some science classes at a local fishing center. Macheus goes to his "slithering snakes" class next week.  That should be fun!
Busy days!!!
