We are nearing the end of our first quarter. The end of the first nine weeks! It has been relatively smooth and the kids are really enjoying school. Something new for my fourth grader is the fact that he now has to take a nine week exam. He loves to learn and remembers a lot of things that I don't even remember! I really think he will do fine. We will review for a few days before the exam.
The other two children, who are in third and first, are doing really well with their school work. My first grader does have a rough time with learning cursive on some days, but other days she just sits down and gets it done. She has finally mastered her first name which is a big accomplishment for her.
The next nine weeks will mean we are halfway done with school for the year. And now that fall is finally here, we will be able to get out and do more things. We want to go on a few field trips the next nine weeks.
