A Sense of Occasion
My kids are all writing exams. My boys, who are homeschooled, are quite excited at this new adventure. The elder has spent a few months at 'proper school', so he has written exams before. For the younger, this is a completely new experience. He sat down at the table on Wednesday. With a deep breath he said, 'This is the first time I am writing an exam. I feel like . . . I'm going to write an exam.' He has a wonderful grasp of language and sense of occasion. Obviously nothing else in his experience felt quite like he was feeling just then. So far, they are enjoying the exams. Wonderful thing homeschooling. God has been so good in allowing me to do this for my children. And I know that next year, although I will be in the hands of the Methodist Church, God will continue to look after my kids and give them the best.
