1 Semester down... 1 more to go!

We are DONE our first semester of school! We had straight A's across the board, except for one B+ in math... but even that grade went up significantly from the first quarter. I am so pleased with the results. I am not an easy grader either. I was always afraid of being "too easy" on my kids, and that they would get an unrealistic perspective of school. I think I may actually be leaning a bit to the other end of the spectrum, and sometimes be a bit too tough on them. I'm working on a balance.

So mostly just for fun, we did a picture day and a survey to keep in their school files. I figured it would be fun to look back on someday. Here are just a few of the cute answers we got...

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Elijah: A hockey player and a watchres. (waitress)

Eve: A mom

Why? Because I like babies.

Favourite place:

Keona and Charity: home

Prayer: PEI

Elijah: Brooks' house

Eve: Grandma's house

I hate it when....

Keona: Eve yells at people

Eve: My brother annoys me

Charity: We have potatoes

Prayer: People call me A.S.H.L.E.Y

If I could have one wish it would be....

Eve: to go on an adventure

Prayer: to go to college

Charity: staying up with Mom and Dad

Elijah: I wish I could play games on Friday and Saturday (long story but it was his punishment lol)

Keona: to get a glimpse of heaven

I was impressed by their answers. Scott and I had a good laugh. Those were just a few of the many questions we asked them. I am so proud of my kids. I'm so thankful that God entrusted me with the responsibility of raising them for Him.
And can I just say one more time... I love homeschooling! :)
