One Proud Mom

As many of you know, I homeschool. Some days are a real challenge. Many days I feel like not homeschooling. I feel in my heart that I am doing the right thing, for my children. I am not a teacher. I did not go to collage to be a teacher. Some days I try to explain a problem in math or teach a new rule for Language. I get frustrated and feel like I am not doing a good job.
Courtney took the SAT test back in April. I was worried about the results. I was not as nervous as I was last year, but I still was worried. I met with Courtney's coordinator today. Courtney did SUPER. She was above average on most everything. Many things she was on a 6th and 7th grade level. Her Language scores was a 8th grade level. I was so proud when Courtney's coordinator showed me the results. Courtney even improved on her Spelling grade. I had switched to Spelling Power and I did not know how well Courtney would do. She did great. I am taking some time to brag on my little girl. She will be going into fourth grade this fall. When you get good test results, it gives you a little boost to know you are doing something right.

Yay! Go Court!

I breathed a sigh of relief when I got Noah's. He doesn't test well, and this was the first time he ever did the SATs. He ended up doing better than I thought! WooHoo for us!

Its so easy for us to blame ourselves when they do bad and give them all the credit if they do well.
Step back and soak a little bit it in! You're doing a good job!
