In truth, I gave this whole “rigorous academic learning” thing a week and truly thought it would fail in a day or two. My inaccuracy on this point is sobering on many levels. First, because it means that life as I knew it will now change as I meet the challenge to provide my BigGuy (YES!!! That works!) with the education and learning experience he wants.
Second, my BigGuy is no longer a BoyChild.
Third: Since we will be educating, I need to get on the ball with making plans and requesting books and stuff…
This weekend, we are going to finish up our Worldview lessons. Last night, we discussed and concluded the Jedis were/are pantheists. I’m thankful that BigGuy realizes that his brain is very lazy and wants to change it–persevering through things without having to be pushed in an effort to make his brain think.
Today, we will finish Worldview, talk about his goals for the school year, and go to a birthday party for a 4yo. If there’s time, I’ll have him take the Biology quizzes he didn’t get to do. Tomorrow I will try to be at the library when it opens so as not to further derail our learning. It’s a short learning week due to playdates. *sigh*
