4 Weeks and Counting....
It's hard to believe Declans' first year of school is almost over. It seems like just yesterday Sean and I were trying to decide weather or not to put him in a public school, or home school him. Then there was the decision of curriculum. I am so glad we chose to home school. Seton's has been a God send and I feel like a much better Mom for taking on the challenge.
When Declan started school, he could barely write. Now his handwriting is great. (For a kindergartener)He has learned to add, count money, tell time (On a real clock, not a digital one) read a 2nd level book, and he has memorized 10 prayers, including the Apostles' Creed word perfect. He knows the 10 Commandments in order, the 7 Sacraments and their meanings, the Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and Luminous Mysteries and can say the Rosary on his own.
We have accomplished some much this first year. I can't believe he only has 4.5 weeks to go. What a wonderful blessing it has been for me to watch him progress and learn, knowing it was ME and not some random public teach teaching my son.
I'm a 39 year old mother, wife, and home schooling teacher. I love hanging out with my family, finding healthy recipes to cook, baking, Twitter, Instagram, and movies. I also love photography. I am a huge Walking Dead and Game of Thrones fan. You can also find me on Instagram @scoobyloves2004 and Twitter @mommyto9k
I'm a very outgoing person and will always listen to anyone in need. I started this blog as a place for me to go and escape from everyday life, but I have soon realized that this is a place for us to express how wonderful our life truely is. We are blessed to have our family in a corupt world.
