No Internet + No Cable = No Blog Post about Math..... Until Now

Makenzie and I (hehehe) had a great day a school today. It is still very hard for both of us to get up in the morning and get everything done on time to be at school but we are and she loves school.

I go to talking to another parent at the school yesterday about curriculum issue I was having with the math program. It was so nice to know I am not the only one frustrated.

My oldest son is struggling with Math. Not because he can't do it but because he was taught math the wrong way. Maybe it was a good way in elementary school but they don't teach it that way in middle school. They won't teach it that way in high school or college either. I talked to his math teacher and she doesn't know the Everyday Math Program. This make no since to me because every single child that filters into the middle school has been taught that way. Hmmmmmm? I have some requests in for an administrative review of this issue so we shall see what happens!

In the mean time I am going to start teaching my 4th grader the "real" way to do math. I have heard the teachers are not very receptive to this idea but well in short..... I don't care!

I have been working on going through the 20 plus people that responded to my job ad for a nanny. I am hoping to start with some phone interviews this week. God is providing. I think I have secured about 50% of the funding I will need on a monthly bases to be able to make this work!

I am so excited! I am so ready to just enjoy my kids for a while instead of being all tied up in EVERYTHING that needs to be done! They are growing up so fast. I am sad I have missed so much but by the GRACE of GOD that is going to change!!!!

Last night I had some technical difficulties with a cable and Internet outage so I tried to get to bed early. That did not work out so well but at least I tried!

Right now Makenzie, Kaleb, and I are blogging. (ok I am blogging) We are listening to train and Makenzie is laughing her head of watching Kaleb dance. Therapy will start soon, Kaleb will have to leave for school and the day of craziness will offically start! Here we go!!!!!

Believe.... Prayer Works!

"Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. She offers you life in her right hand, and riches and honor in her left. She will guide you down delightful paths; all her ways are satisfying. Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her; happy are those who hold her tightly."

(Proverbs 3:15-18, NLT)
