how do u do it? During the school year I work from 10 am to 7:30pm. we will be officially starting our school year in August but beginning July 11th we will begin back with our math facts and writing. We did Abeka last year but didn't get much done. Hubby doesn't have the heart for it and he's the stay at home dad due to his disability. Turned it over to him and he did his best but now I have a majorly burned out 12 year old who is TWO years behind where she should be. I need some encouragement. We thought about putting her in public school last year but they tested her at 4th grade level. She will be 13 and I'm NOT doing that to her! If we had a sylvan learning center I would take her but we don't. Closest one is 1.5 hours away. Hubby can't drive and I can't take off work. Feel like I'm stuck in between a rock and a hard place. We live in Texas and the laws r pretty relaxed here so I'm considering just doing the basics this year and finishing up some of Our left over Abeka science and history this next year. I really want to focus on Math,Spelling, Language arts and reading/writing. I want to bring back the joy of learning to this super smart girl nod make up for lost time. It's been a really hard 2 years. We are all still trying to adjust.
