Actually Gracie began Sixth Grade last week, but Sixth Grade is now happening… It was a tiring week for both of us trying to get back into routines. We made it though!
The actual classes have went over really well. I think Gracie is going to have a very good year. She seems to enjoy all of her teachers. She is even READING! She is reading more than fairy books. I didn’t think I would ever see her actually sitting down to read a book and not complain. It is assigned reading time, but she is enjoying it. I’m so thankful.
She has never been a fan of math either. Imagine my surprise when she went to Martha’s one day and was explaining greatest common factor. I think that was what it was, I could be calling something wrong. I didn’t write it down. The teachers seem to have her excited this year. That’s a blessing to a parent.
I just pray that the rest of the year continues on this way. I know that we will have some bumps in the road and we will get wore out, but I have high hopes for Sixth Grade!
