Hanna is doing so well with her school work. I am very proud of her efforts and the quality of her work this semester. Her grades have been very good, and she and I are having a fun time with her art, science and creative writing this last month.
The two of us have been having lots of ‘conferences’ over school work, doing planning together, projects together and it’s a great feeling. I cannot believe in just a few short months she will begin 8th grade. I have been reading and reading and reading up on homeschool high school. I am leaning towards The Home Scholar, Lee Binz, for help in my homeschool high school journey. I hope to have a loose road map and high school plan for Hanna mapped out by late August.
Hanna worked really hard on her rendition of Van Gogh’s Starry Night the past few weeks. She included texture and was so careful as she painted each layer, mixed colors and planned out where everything would go. It was sweet to watch her paint this from start to finish. I love how it turned out and will be hanging this one in our art hallway for sure. I could never paint anything like this. I do not have the talent or creativity that Hanna possesses. I love seeing all that she makes and hearing how the wheels in her mind turn as she comes up with a method to her madness.
