I need a drink

First day of school! Argh. It started so promising. We were all too happy to get started on the assignments. At first it seemed so simple. Even a bit too easy. But reality reared its ugly head. I know like anything we virtual school would be a huge adjustment. It is not for everyone. A child in virtual school must be disciplined and focused. My kids and I at quickly learning that fact. Thankfully, we aren't ready to give up yet. We are pushing through and hoping tomorrow will be a better day.

Almost ready

Our learning centers are ready! Kids are getting pumped for the first day of school. I'm a bit overwhelmed and nervous about starting something new. I'm sure we will all do well. Hopefully the kids will be getting their first call from their teachers in the next few days.  Hopefully today! School starts on Monday and id love to chat with the teachers before that time.

Connections Academy is the winner

So, we decided to go with Connections Academy! They seemed to have more options available in terms of electives for my 6th grader. My daughter is really excited to start. She plans on taking Chinese, keyboarding and music in addition to her core classes.  My son is excited to have a bit of control when it comes to his education.  This is all so exciting our family
