  1. I look forward to watching your year unfold.
    Blessings, Dawn

    1. I look forward to seeing yours, too!

  2. We're prepping for the SAT and working hoping to take driver's tests (one or two) before the end of the school year, too. Once again, wishing you lived closer :)

  3. How do you like Teaching Textbooks? I've looked at them once or twice, but wasn't really sure about them.

    1. I really like it. Sam does much better if he hears it as well as sees it, so he does well with the computer aspect of it. James has very low auditory comprehension, so he doesn't do so well with the computer part, but I think he will do well with me working with him through the book. I like the fact that the kids get immediate feedback with the computer, so they don't get off on the wrong trail and have to back up and start over if they don't get a concept the first time. I also like the fact that the grading is automatically done... less work for me!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
