Rebekah comes home from school today telling me her teacher says she is going to fail second grade and have to stay with her again next year. What??? Rebekah has been on the A-B Honor roll almost all year. She has not made a failing grade on her report card this entire year. I am really ready to knock heads. Why would a teacher tell their students something like this? I fail to grasp the concept that doing 100 math problems in 5 minutes makes people successful. Wouldn't it be more prudent to GET THE ANSWERS CORRECT?
So we decided to work on it and I found these subtraction flashcards here so we are practicing. Rebekah knows these subtraction facts.
Wow! I am so excited! I have joined the Ultimate Blog Party 2013 over here and I am working hard to do all the "assignments" for the Profitable Blogging For Beginners class at Blogelina.com. I am going to be super busy completing all the exciting tasks! I am also the proud new owner of The Blackberry Barn, a thrift/consignment shop! I am a 40-something mom to 3 and step-mom to 2, all of which are grown but the least'un, Bekah, age 7. We have 6 grandchildren and one on the way. Needless to say life is exciting. I am working on my MEd in Human Resource Development in a Graduate and Professional Studies program. I hope to focus my blog towards my shop adventures, finds and projects! I am learning a lot about blogging and I am so happy to have found UBP2013!
St. Valentine's Day Advent chain was an awesomely fun project. Had the printer been cooperative, it would have been easier, but I learned how to write several different cute fonts, lol!
Saturday morning, bright and early...Upward Cheerleading! So cute and I love how this program uses God's Word to train up Godly athletes.
Had to make a small change in plans, to check on my grandmother who was in the final stages of Alzheimer's Sat with her a bit, held her hand and told her how much she meant to me as a child, as an adult and that it was ok for her to let go and head HOME.
Next stop, Birthday parties for sweet little friends!
Yes, we all skated...except dad, who says he doesn't know how and is too old to learn without breaking something!
AFTER I tried to break my knee!
When we left the skating rink, we slid home in this...
