A Few Updates

I'm finding it really difficult to keep posting at a regular pace. Sorry about that! Life is changing around here. Meg is my only homeschooler, and very independent, so there's not a lot to say there! She has worked through three Teaching Company lecture series and done a lot of reading, plus all her singing activities. Just this weekend she starts rehearsals for a Christmas musical.

Melissa is my public schooler. She's always busy with sports and school, and doing well in both. I was glad to hear that she continues to be independent-minded. In one class they were discussing a popular movie, and everyone thought it was "beautiful." She, on the other hand, said it was "demeaning to women." But, but, it's "beautiful!"

Peter loves college. He is in his second year and still a straight A student. He's actually excited to get writing assignments. :) Now if he'd just remember to ask about an internship next summer...

My blogging has helped me deal with the transition that occurred when Peter moved out last year. I'm better now, thanks to all of you who have listened to me expound on my love of homeschooling and parenting. I probably won't post much or very regularly, it seems, but I'm still here, so write with questions or comments anytime.

Happy Holidays to all of you. :)

You sound happy, Jena. If you'd like, please submit this post to the Carnival of Unschooled Life (or, I can just link to it, with your permission. It's a good one for the "Passages" category.

Congratulations on your wonderful parenting. It shows. : )

Happy holidays to you as well -
