Hi guys,

It's been awhile since I posted so I thought it was time.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

More than the creature comforts that God has a way of just dropping onto us , I am really grateful for the gains that my kids have made both academically and socially.

My oldest has been away at college this year, her first, and has with some hardship, adjusted to the "lifestyle" there. Probably the hardest thing for her so far has been having no quiet place of her own. It's 24/7 there and no time for yourself. I'd say that's hard... Otherwise , all is well. This kid is pre-med and nothing is getting in her way.

LD son has been struggling with organization. Academics clearly take a back seat to music. M & D have compromised much and have allotted adequate time but, it's still a struggle. Otherwise, everything is on course.

Child number three, daughter who skipped a grade in kindergarten is very anxious to attend the local parochial highschool. We attended an orientation session this weekend which seemed to increase her interest so, she is scheduled for an entrance exam for the first week of December. Let's hope for the best.

I hope all of you are having experiences this year for which you can be truly grateful.

My love and well wishes to you all,

homeschooling since '97: daughter, 18- away at college, son, 16 and daughter 13
