LaRee - 7th grade at home this year.
Answer #1: Because we've always wanted to give it a try.
Answer #2: Because Middle School seemed like a good time.
Answer #3: She's been delightfully dilligent so far.
Answer #4: I'm not really teaching, although I'm very involved. It's an online school.
Answer #5: She loves it. Maybe because she can eat popsicles while studying history on the couch.
Answer #6: I love it, too. Interestingly, the level of mother/daughter conflict has dropped since school started. (Of course, that could be because we're all getting more sleep.)
