L'Drago is doing so so great as well. We have a routine, he's getting more independent and I keep praising him whenever I get the opportunity to do so for he's so competitive and feels like: He couldn't make any mistakes and is so upset if they happen. I'm happy I'm right there by his side, assuring him that it is ok to make these mistake and that it's all good. Around beginning October I felt like I really REALLY needed a break, we pulled through it though (with a much needed 4 day weekend in between) and here we are, still standing strong! still looking forward to the holidays though, haha. I know I could've taken them any time I wanted, I just like sticking to the schedule and that again is me being stubborn.
Dino is still being Dino.. and if he's not scribbling in one of the old schoolbooks he's sitting in the middle of our study table overseeing what everyone is doing and make plenty comments.. One must love it !!
I have made some changes, yet again. A couple of months into Rightstart Math I suddenly felt like this isn't working and I switched to Saxon Math. So far so good, I like the variety of Saxon Math, while with Rightstart Math there was mostly the Abacus. I have also read a lot about the Charlotte Mason Education and learnt about "Living Books". When I first started homeschooling I was as eclectic as one can be. Now well into our 3rd year I am spending so much time reading about the different learning styles and I'm getting so much out of it, even just a different good way on how to think about teaching on an everyday basis.
