Moments To Remember

Just last summer when we were outside playing kiddie golf. Ken was passed a pencil by her dad to record her score, boy did she frown when she realized a pencil was involved. Learning was a chore for Ken it was not something she was into doing unless she was made to do it. Fast forward to now, after a couple of months of homeschooling, Ken is back to having fun learning new concepts and is even enjoying doing math. Ken just recently has become to question what she reads, researches the findings out, writes daily on her own in her journal, and even discusses her lessons with anybody who has the time to listen to her go on and on about her latest new finds. This girl actually becomes a little upset at the end of the work period, and always says she needs more time!

I captured a picture of Ken while she was doing math work in the elementary series of Life of Fred. I caught her more than once smiling with excitement as she was reading along. Ken has some moral issues with this book, but it is motivating her to become a critical thinker. This is definetly a moment to remember!!
