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…

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…

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…

Washington D.C. Day 7

Day 7 was our last day in Washington D.C. Jeff took Madison back to the Museum of Natural History while I got everything packed up. She insisted on going back to the butterfly garden again. 😂 They stopped to take pictures along the National…

Washington D.C. Day 6

Day 6 of our Washington D.C. Vacation was probably the longest day…. We started out visiting Mount Vernon in Virginia. Madison didn’t feel it was appropriate to smile in front of the tombs. Then we went back to D.C. and visited the Martin Luther…
