New bed for Jack. New sheets with monsters on them that are very cuddly. Spending lots of time with our favorite dog. Reading. Lots and lots of reading. Expanding our writing chops. Vocabulary words. SO thankful for Khan Academy. Learning about pulmonary systems. Crash course of History of the World. Lunch outside. Sunshine. Lots of laughing. Lots of talking. Talking about hard things. Park day. Classes at the college. Student small group. Reading to my boy again. I missed that. It was my favorite. I know he’s safe. He knows he’s loved. We can absolutely do this.
I would take a bullet for him. I’d step in front of a moving train for him. And yes, I’d even homeschool him if I had to. I’d do anything for him.
So as we are nearing the end of this homeschool year, I thought I’d quickly list some of the books we have read.
Books Jack has read on his own:
– The Lemonade War by Jaqualine Davies
– Sweet Farts by Ramond Bean (this book appears to be very educational)
– Runaway Ralph by Beverly Cleary
– Choose Your Own Adventure #27 (Project UFO) by R.A. Montgomery
– Books 1-13?? (I think one got skipped somehow) of A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
– The Percy Jackson books (don’t remember how many are in the series) by Rick Riordan
– 2 Edgar & Ellen books (Rare Beasts and Split Ends) by Charles Ogden
– Diary of a Wimpy Kid books by Jeff Kinney
– He also read about six Magic School Bus books that I made him read for “Science.”
– He started the Harry Potter series a week or so ago and he’ll probably read those during the summer.
Last summer Phillip read Charlie & the Chocolate Factory and the Glass Elevator by Roald Dahl to Jackson. Since the fall I’ve read the Chronicles of Narnia series to him. We started A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle a week or two ago. I’m not sure what we’re going to read to Jack this summer, but we’ll figure something out. He loves being read to.
So anyway, I might be leaving something out but that’s all I can think of right now. I’m glad the boy likes books.
