Next: CC GOT THE JOB!!!! She will volunteer for 20 hours a week at our fabulous zoo. She'll have fun, work with some terrific people and learn a lot.
Also of note, CC had her last concert of the season. She was fabulous. Here is a sample of her group. They started the year with no experience and now make music. It is just amazing to hear how much they've learned.
It is choppy so listen instead of watch
CC was sick most of the week and did no school other than reading until her concert Thursday. LB had school Monday and Tuesday then succumbed to the virus too which put her in bed for a couple of days. At this rate, we may not be finished with school until July.
On Thursday night, I spent a couple of hours at the parent orientation for the school CC will attend next year. The more time I spend there, the more I love the place. However, I learned some disturbing information about the local schools. Thirty per cent of the sixth graders that enter the school are more than two years behind in math. These are sixth graders that cannot do double digit multiplication or long division. It really reinforces my feelings about continuing to home school LB.
On Friday, CC took a grammar test at her future school and was sized for her school cello. (The new school diagrams sentences and has an orchestra program; isn't that awesome?!)
This week was good, but I hope we get more work done next week.
