*Smarty Pants Spence*

*Spencer is celebrating his 1st Book Report that he did so great on! Spencer is such a great reader but is always in such a hurry when he writes so we've been really working on his handwriting lately. He had a lot of pride in his book report as he spent a lot of time on it & he had awesome handwriting. We found out just recently that after some testing at school, Spencer tested into a 5th Grade reading level!!! He can even read many levels higher than that, but averages 5th grade. YEAH Spence! We are so proud of you.

Great job on the great book report and the handwriting improvement!! That's quite impressive for a 2nd grader to test into a 5th grade + level!!

I'm very curious about the home schooling - what did you use to teach, and for how long? (When do your kids start public school?) If you could give me insight, that would be great! I also home-teach my kids, as preschool costs mucho dinero, and am trying to figure out what I want them to do when it comes time for Kindergarten. I think they are doing good so far, but am always looking to further their learning. Seriously, let me know!

Audra,
Skyler and Spence really are two peas in a pod. Skyler is at that reading level too AND he has struggled with having nice hand writing, I mean it is readable, but he just writes fast and stuff, it isn't bad, just not great. Anyways, that is so funny, we really need to get these boys together!
