Last year when we decided for certain that homeschooling was for us, I put a pretty hefty bar for Kyra and I to accomplish before I was positive I'm not an idiot and yes, I can indeed teach my own kid. The bar? To teach Kyra to read before the end of this school year.
Tonight, I wrote this sentence on a wipe board: The fat cat sat on the yellow mat.
SUCCESS IS MINE!
Oh, and Kyra's too.
She hasn't read her first book, yet, but somehow, someway, I've managed to get achieve a goal I was certain we were going to miss. My kid is learning to read. She's made me a very proud Mama today.
