Homeschooling

This fall we started our 4th academic school year.  Nika is in 4th grade and Christian is in 2nd grade.  I don't know if we are better at "doing school" then we were to start off with, but we sure have learned a lot.  Each year is an adjustment.  New Curriculum, New Concepts, New Activities, and a new Maturity.  But so much of us (the kids and I) want things to be easy and not a challenge.  Why do we want things to be easy?  Why do we expect each day to be the same as the day before?  Isn't that boring?

I sure hope my kids learn.  You know the normal stuff, Geography, History, Grammar, Science, Writing, Reading, etc.  But sometimes I feel we learn more in the process of "doing school".  I learn patience, to let go, how I affect others, to see joy in little things, control, etc.  I really worry sometimes I get more out of homeschooling than the kids do.  I hope they don't.  But sometimes I don't know if they are picking up the "good habit" I am trying to teach them.  I want them to be hard working.  I want them to take pride in accomplishing a challenging task.  I want them to be curious!  I want them to rush through life.  But I don't know if I do those things.  So often I am rushing from task to task just trying to get it done well enough.  Sometimes I refuse to answer their questions until a "more appropriate time," which never comes.  Maybe that is why families have two parents.  Two examples of how to do things right and two examples of how to NOT do things.

I pray that despite me God would craft my kids into someone better than me.  Smarter, More Curious, More Athletic, More Obedient,  Better Paced, and you know all the other good things!

ووجود الحمام فى النوافذ يتسبب فى حدوث اضرار كثيرة بجانب الشكل الغير جميل للمكان نجد انها تخلف الريش وبعض من انواع البكتيريا التى تسبب تآكل المبانى الخرسانة حتى تصل الى الحديد المسلح الموجود فى الجدران ويآكل هو الاخر وينتج عن ذلك حلول اضرار جسيمة للمنزل , وليس هذا فقط بل واكثر من ذلك لأن الحمام يتسبب فى وجود الامراض لاصحاب المنزل .

Dear friend, may I ask you for a favor? I am presently trying to enhance traffic in my company’s blog, as this would increase chances of the blog’s photos to appear in “Google Images”; this is very important for our work. Could you please visit our blog and browse for a couple of minutes. You may even learn about a new product there!
Thank you.
