7 Quick Takes

 
~~ONE~~
 
We are at the end of week two of these huge changes for our family and we are starting to gain our footing. I have been able to catch my breath several times in the last week, which was something I wasn't able to do for the entire month of August. I find that I am not able to do anything non-homeschooling / LMCA-related on Sunday night to Wednesday, but that's better than it was a few weeks ago.
 
~~TWO~~
 
Isaac seems to be adjusting more and more. He has decided school is fun, not "really" fun, but just fun.
 
~~THREE~~
 
Michael asked how he did on his math test and he shrugged and said, "I did okay." When we went to look at the test we saw he got 25.5 points out of 25 points because he had completed the bonus problems. He is shining already!
 
~~FOUR~~
 
Quick adoption update: Yes we are still adopting from Texas. We are just waiting to be matched with a birth month. We have viewed about a dozen profiles, but of those 75% of the mothers were having boys. Of the ones having girls, we were not the family they chose. I know our daughter will come to us. Patience is key here. We have only been birth mother ready for six months.
 
~~FIVE~~
 
LMCA is more awesome than anyone could have imagined. If you are a local homeschooler and are looking for something with a little more academics and structure for your student, I encourage you to come check us out. Here's a science project from the last week:
 
 
And here's the Romans fighting the Barbarians made out of Legos.
 
 
~~SIX~~
 
LMCA is a hard adjustment for Malcolm, who has to come to LMCA for the day with us. He gets so tired out.
 
 
Pretty sure he was on floor when he went to sleep, but maybe I am wrong.
 
~~SEVEN~~
