Reflections of Homeschooling a Profoundly Gifted Child

As we begin a new year, I have reflected over the past four in regards to homeschooling. When we decided homeschooling was Madison’s best option, and by we, I mean Madison, Jeff and I, it was because she was bored to tears in school….

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…

A Gifted Breakdown

Today was a great day. Madison exceled like she never has before. There was a light in her eyes that I had never seen before. I was feeling inept because I always have to Google and double check if her outside the box thinking…

Our Week of Gifted Homeschooling – The Last Week in March 2015

I want to start this post out by saying how much I love the Redbird Advanced Mathematics course that Madison is doing. The reason I love it so much, is because she loves it so much. And maybe a little bit of it is…

Our Week of Gifted Homeschooling 1/12/15 – 1/17/15

This week was a really great week! Madison loves her Art class at the ArtHouse and completed a painting she titled ‘Tornado.’ I’ll be honest, it freaked me out a little with the smiley face. But, she did a fantastic job and I am…

Our Week of Gifted Homeschooling 1/5/15-1/10/15

I was hoping after the trying week we had last week that this week would be better. And thankfully it was. We began our activities and I think that helped a lot. This week was fun for both of us. Madison enjoyed learning and…

The Crazy Fun of November
