Not Back to School - Meet the Students

This is Polly. She'll be 12 in December. She's doing mostly 7th grade work.
  • Favorite subject: History / Reading
  • Nemesis: Algebra / Math
  • Strengths: logical, good memory, excellent reader, organized, dependable, hard-worker, managerial skills
  • Weaknesses: easily frustrated, sometimes procrastinates, atrocious handwriting, bossiness
 Girl on the right: Tigger. She'll be 9 next month and she's doing mostly 4th grade work
  • Favorite subject: Latin / Grammar
  • Nemesis: Math
  • Strengths: good memory, excellent writer, great penmanship, dependable, great with the littles, creative, generally quiet (I told her the other day her new nickname was "Mouse")
  • Weaknesses: easily distracted, hates change, can't be hurried, perfectionist tendencies
Girl on the left: Sweet Pea. She's 6 and she's doing mostly 1st grade work.
  • Favorite subject: Math
  • Nemesis: Learning to Read
  • Strengths: cheerful, creative, artistic, willing, diplomatic, unique perspective on everything
  • Weaknesses: forgetful, impatient, constantly moving
Miss Lili (AKA: Ladybug, Stinker, Buster). Will be 3 next month.
  • Favorite subject:Computer Skills. Girl loves her games.
  • Nemesis: potty training
  • Strengths: extreme cuteness, excellent memory, cheerful, exuberant, fearless
  • Weaknesses: strong willed, only two speeds: full speed ahead or asleep, fearlessness (if this seems similar to her list of strengths, it is)
iBoy. (AKA Baby Boy. The Boy. Bud) Will be 4 months old on September 1.
  • Favorite subject: lunch (and breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses, snack, supper, midnight snack...)
  • Nemesis: tummy time
  • Strengths: extreme cuteness, smiles, blowing bubbles, holding up his head, mellow-est baby ever
  • Weaknesses: still pretty helpless. That's not actually a weakness since it's a joy for me to care for him.
I think I have the best students ever, but I'm willing to admit to a bit of bias. I'm truly grateful for the privilege of homeschooling these kiddos. The time we spend together can occasionally be nuts, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

How about you? How many students do you have in your homeschool?
