Our Incredible Journey of Giftedness

One of these days I am going to go back and read all of the posts I’ve written on this blog. I am so grateful I wrote them so Madison and I can go back at any time and read the wonderful times and…

Madison’s Gifted Educational Jumps

During the time I have homeschooled Madison I have noticed that she makes major educational jumps. They are hard to explain. When she learns things she ‘jumps’ five times ahead of what she’s learned. They aren’t just jumps, they’re big jumps. I’ve had to…

Jumping Through Hoops

Madison loves to create. Especially when it comes to nature. She builds things with mud and leaves and sticks. Someday I am sure I’ll understand why she has done this since she could walk. But for now I don’t try to make sense of…

Finding Your Child’s Tribe

Having a child that isn’t like other children her age is challenging. Not only it is challenging for them intellectually, it is challenging emotionally and socially. And thus, it’s challenging for a parent to meet all of those needs. Especially at one time. Madison…

Homeschooling a Radically Accelerated Profoundly Gifted Child

Raising Madison has been a trip. She’s a trip. There’s no other way to explain it really. In a nutshell, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I agreed to homeschool her. I had no idea what she could accomplish…

The Dog Days of Summer

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer! We are winding ours down and gearing up for the new school year. Madison kicked her summer off with attending a YMCA camp on the lake. She enjoyed horseback riding, boating/tubing, the B.B. range, field games,…

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see the disclosure policy. Madison wrapped up her Spring Semester by completing Intro to Latin, Philosophy, Political Systems, and Wordly Wise Book 7. She also finished her year long Introduction to Composition, which was an accredited course…

A Weekend of Fun: Physics Fest and Waco

At the beginning of April, we took a quick weekend trip to College Station, TX to attend Physics Fest at Texas A&M. We pass through Waco, TX on our way so I decided we’d stop and visit things we have had on our bucket…
