Wow, glad to hear I'm on the right track. We had various things happen throughout the school year, and I had to tell myself not to worry - summer can be a time to catch up without going crazy. There's some ongoing things we're dealing with this summer, so we absolutely must be relaxed, otherwise we wouldn't be able to deal with those things. Some of these things will probably resolve themselves by autumn, some won't. That's OK - there's next summer too.
I'm finding that if I need to skip a day of Latin, so be it - my older child loves to write funny stories in Latin, so that's what happens when I can't teach. I remember at the beginning of my sophomore year I didn't remember all that much of the foreign language I was studying, so something is better than nothing.
Finding your site was an answer to prayer. The kids and I have literally been "scrambling" to finish out the year. We still need to finish their math, but we will definitely do so with a more relaxed attitute.
We were wrestling with this very issue. I needed jr. grades on the transcript NOW to enroll in dual courses. "Mom, I'm not done!" Yes you are. Besides, this week between church camp and mission trip was supposed to be finishing school. Instead we're battling colds. Resting up for mission trip is way more important. I choose peace. Thank you, Lee.
You have no idea how much I needed to hear that! We desperately need the break from school work but I have felt so anxious about trying to get every single page finished! Both of my children have gone to public school in the past so I knew they never finished their books entirely, but my OCD personality tends to take over sometimes. LOL Thank you for the reminder. We are FINISHED with school until August.
You just saved my children from a long and painful summer. Thank you for these wise and calming words.
I have to confess, I was tempted to call this post "Logic for Dummies" but I was afraid you would know I'm not actually an intellectual. You see, I know that I could never possibly have taught logic to my logic-loving children without some help.
