First day of homeschool

Our home school materials arrived on Monday, the 21st. This was the Monday after returning from the cabin with a sick Kennedy. The two of us were so excited to open the box and look at the workbooks. So, I was unprepared for what Kennedy said next.
"Mom, if I were sick you wouldn't send me to school. So, I can't start home school yet" Wow! She doesn't miss a trick! My little evil genius :).
We didn't start that day due to her high fever, but we did start before she felt 100%. My thoughts were if she were well enough to play around in the house and watch TV, she could do some school work. Mean ol' Mrs. Mom!
A few things that cracked me up about Kennedy so far?
1. When matching words to pictures, I pointed to one and looking for the spelling word "bug", asked Kennedy what was it. Her answer? Praying Mantis. Which, by the way, was absolutely correct!
2. This happened again when I was pointing to what was "dog", and she answered with certainty, "Shitzu"-my parents have one, and to be fair, it did in fact, look like a Shitzu.
Funny, funny girl.
3. "Do I call you Mom or Mrs. Kim?"

I LOVE that girl! She is so precious.

Love #3! Hope the homeschooling continues to go well... for both of you!

I didn't know you were homeschooling. I'd love to hear all about it. We are either going to homeschool or do Cross Pointe Prep. But we still have a few years to decide.
