Sumayyah (Lil Miss)

Is one today!!!!!! It has been a wonderful year. I had a chance to stay home and watch her grow. She has been the apple to all of our eyes. We don't celebrate birthdays with a party and so on. We do recognize that we are getting older and spend time with the women in our life that made it possible. Lil miss got a huge frog lolipop from her dad that she enjoyed. She would not cooperate for any pictures, but I did get a few from the side of her face. Smile When I can figure out how to fix my computer I will share the pics. My baby is getting big and I am so sad but elated that I had the opportunity to do it again. Off topic... My oldest daughter took a trip to the community college here today and took the entrance exam. To my delight she has honors classes. Home-school children rock! I don't believe in test. I think that they can't measure a child's intellect as children freeze during test taking, and my oldest was one of them. She always scored low, but just about received excellent scores when the test was read to her verbally. So today I received two great gifts!

Thank you all. Mara anytime you have a question feel free. I love teaching them at home. I am rather relax and just let them learn at their own pace. No stress. I learned after Sekaya that testing can make some children feel great and others really bad. I still test them more so quiz them just to see if they grasp what was taught. I let the children choose things to read about in each subject. Sekaya wants to be a Pediatrician so she studied a lot of science and she also loved reading and writing. I'm a proud momma! Happy to have shared it with my friends here.
