Finishing the School Year.....or not

This was our last week at Classical Conversations with our youngest, but our oldest has another three weeks.  Though we'll be done with our homeschool group in Classical Conversations, we will continue some classes through the summer.  Our youngest will be doing her Time4Learning, which she loves.  She doesn't think of it as school, which is great because she's learning and having fun doing it. We will also continue working on her reading comprehension and copy work.  Our high school son will continue with math.  He's also thinking about doing public speaking and debate competitions next year.  If he decides to do that, then he will need to prepare some speeches for next year and start memorizing them.  As for our oldest daughter, who will be a senior next year, she will be taking some dual enrollment classes at our local college this summer semester.  She also wants to take an SAT writing course.  She recently started a babysitting job watching two kids.  I think she's so good with kids and seems to have a natural flair for teaching.  She likes putting games together or finding a creative craft to do with them.  Last week she was making some preschool flashcards to help one of the kids because she's learning to read.  We've talked about the possibility of her going into the field of teaching, but she doesn't seem interested in it at all.  She wants to be a sign language interpreter.  We'll just have to wait and see what happens.  She may be a sign language interpreter AND a homeschool mommy some day. :)

I love that your daughter wants to be sign language interpreter. Just an awesome way to help people communicate. :)
