We are beginning our 15th year of Homeschooling this year! Wow. It seems like it was just a few days ago that I first started teaching phonics to Kendall and Ryan. Time has flown. Kendall started his 3rd year of college yesterday, and Alex will start his first year of college classes on Thursday, thanks to the Dual Enrollment option here in North Carolina.
So this is going to be a very different year, with both boys in college. Alex and I will be studying some stuff at home, namely 20th Century History, and he will be taking French again with Mrs. U. At the college, he will be taking College Algebra, Expository Writing, and JAVA Programming. To top it all off, he will be working several nights a week at the Outback, where he just got hired on as a bus boy.
Kendall will be working on “The Blue Banner” this year, as part of his Journalism degree requirement. “The Blue Banner” is the school newspaper for UNC-Asheville. He is really excited about it, and I am anxious to see some of his stuff in print. He will also be starting new job in a couple of weeks, and is looking forward to having a steady income this winter.
Faith and I actually started schooling a couple of weeks ago, on a very laid back schedule. Next week will be a “full” week. This year, in addition to the regular school subjects (History, Math, Science, Latin, Language Arts, Religion) she is also taking violin lessons and we are taking a quilting class together. So, it promises to be a very exciting and fulfilling year.
