My friend Megan at My Full Heart is having a Jr. High weekly link-up called Junior High Junction! How fun, I'm looking forward to participating. Hopefully it will get my Jr. High blog post to actually happen.

All I did with Brent today was have a parent-student "conference". To tell you the truth I'm still floundering, ack! Embarrassing to admit. A homescholing mama of 13+ years should have her act together. At least you'd think she would :P (not sure how to add a confused smiley guy).
As I am writing Brent is completing a Teach Yourself to Draw lesson. I plan to have him work through the whole series this year. He won't be using the companion handbook like Ethan and Lance will.
Brent is also restarting Dyslexia Games. I think it will work out much better if I print each book for him instead of only printing what he will use for the day because the pages keep getting lost that way. So even though he has completed the first two books, we both decided it would be a good thing to start from the beginning.
My 8th grader will continue to use UnLock Math and will supplement with Are You a Math Genius and Life of Fred Kidneys, Liver, and Mindshaft (we'll see how many he gets through).
So that's our slow start. Tomorrow (and the rest of the week) hopefully we'll cover more and I'll have a better Junior High Junction post. I'm just thankful we did something!
