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…

The Straw That Broke the Camel’s Back

When Madison went to public school I saved all of her papers. Every single one. It’s a good thing she only attended Kinder and First Grade. 😉 I went though all of these papers recently to throw away the ones that I didn’t want…

*This post may obtain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for more details. Madison finished up her summer with a lot of wonderful camps and good books. She attended Catholic Kidz Camp and took Cooking and Scratch through the Coppell Gifted Association. She…

CBS Scorpion is an Inspiration for Gifted Children

We are enjoying the second season of Scorpion on CBS. The current season has hit home as a parent of gifted child. Why? Because with the action and far fetched plot that appeal to the ‘general public,’ this TV series has much more of…

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…

February Discovery Days at the Perot Museum

Madison’s favorite place to visit (aside from Disney World) is our local Science Museum, the Perot. Each month they feature Discovery Days on the second Saturday of the month where families discover the fun of science together. You can try out real experiments, design…

Our Week of Gifted Homeschooling – The Second Week in February 2015

This week was full of hands on learning and fun activities. Madison attended a robotics homeschool class at our local Science museum. It is a part classroom learning environment with hands on activities and learning out in the museum. She always learns a lot…

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

I realize I am a bit behind on posts and need to catch up before the New Year! The holidays have been a whirlwind of fun! Madison is an extrovert and is always wanting to be on the go and be around people. I…

Asynchronism: The Gifted Child Flipping a Switch

I think the hardest part of raising and teaching a highly gifted child is asynchronism. One moment she’s so mature and talking as if she is 20 and the very next second she is clapping and dancing around as if she was 3. I…
