|Locations for a degree in Meteorology (ignore the Chicken Soup book!)|
Samuel has been researching colleges and universities that offer studies in Meteorology. He also informed me that he needs to be really good in Math and Science in order to do well in this career. He is so excited to be 11 years old and ready to start middle school!
Surprisingly he has taken ownership of 6th grade scheduling. In the back of my mind I was already planning a little more structure and for the past few weeks he has been looking through his Math 6 book and figuring out how many weeks he needs to finish it before his birthday next May. Last week he announced that he would like 6th grade to begin on August 5. He wants to get a feel for it before we go on vacation to Costa Rica!
Samuel has never ever been this excited about starting school....I think it has a lot to do with his friends - mostly home-schooled, and his age.
Unschooling was a very good season for us. I learned a lot about parenting, control and respect. Samuel loved the freedom and was able to step away a little and test a few boundaries. Now begins the season of morning structure and discipline (afternoons and weekends are still free!)
