Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Although he was achieving good results, he wasn't reaching his full potential because his love for learning had been destroyed & hence his grades were steadily declining.

Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Completely failed by the system, he hated school, was always tired & homework time was a major frustration for both of us. He was severely frustrated & quickly heading to become yet another ADHD statistic.

Well Done Boys~!!!

So we’ve finally made it through the school year. We managed to finish all the workbooks on time & have received reports.


Jesse’s grades have dropped, but he still passed grade 7 and received the “Chess Player of the Year Trophy”. Well done, Jesse!

In spite of all the stress & frustrations, Misha’s had to deal with this year he still managed to pass Gr. 2 with good results. He achieved 93% for English & 95% for Maths on Smart Tutor. His bookwork still needs improving, but for now he’s on a well deserved break. Well done, Misha, we knew you could do it!

Initially he was supposed to continue some learning during the holidays, but I have since decided to give him these few weeks to totally destress & rest. We’ll tackle rest of his problem areas in the New Year when he’s fully relaxed & well rested.13~LOLLIPOPS040208112330

Instead I’ve devoted my time to rest, preparing the new school room & working through some Homeschooling reading material. I have also finally handed over my MIA Secretary duties after 5 years of service to the school. now I can give my undivided attention to my family & focus on homeschooling my boys, although it's going to be strange not having the additional "job" anymore.

Next year we’ll take the bull by the horns & work on any of the other areas that need improving.

Until then, wishing you all a restful holiday & God’s very richest blessings for Christmas and the New Year.
