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 – The Fourth Week in February 2015

This week we experienced an ice and snow storm in Texas so Madison’s Homeschool class at the Perot Museum was canceled. It was a huge disappointment for her, but we got a lot of learning done, so it ended up working out.We happened to…
