End-of-School Interviews for 2015-2016
Yesterday was officially the last day of our 2015-2016 school year! It’s been a full year and we are all so ready for our summer break. A number of years ago I was inspired by Sarah
to start creating these End-of-School Interviews for each of my children and we’ve been making them every year since. It’s so fun to look back through
, and 2014-2015
) and see how much our students have grown each year and how their answers change.
Here are this year’s End-of-School Interviews (revised with blog nicknames):
They may not have made it to state this year, but we were so proud of the boys for competing at the Regional/District level their Freshman year. Captain had his best two games at the District/Regional tournament ending up with the top score out of all his teammates! With lots of hard work and practice their coach thinks they will be able to make it to state in a year or two. We’ll see!
Last year Ranger was “most proud of” his test scores
… He improved them again this year! In the fall he scored in the 91st percentile on the 8th grade state required math test, just before he was moved up to 9th, and last week he scored in the 96th percentile
on the 9th grade state required math test! Saxon seems to be working. I’m so proud of all the kids’ hard work to improve their math grades!
The Paradise Project is such an excellent book. I loved it too! Twinkle Toes really enjoyed meeting the author, who graciously invited our family to her home to celebrate Easter this year while we were on the road traveling home from Arizona. Such a treat!
He is amazing
at Animal Tracks
. He has memorized many of the tracks and can name and pair them with the matching animal without any help. I don’t know how he does it.
Another thing Bud loves to say is “Ding! Ding! Ding, ding, ding!!!” when he is trying to
get the attention ring for one of his older siblings servants. He is definitely a youngest child…
Recently I asked him to pick a few things up off the floor. He responded that he “didn’t make that mess…” I told him I knew that he didn’t, but I wanted him to pick them up for me anyway and that it was going to be his “chore for the morning.” He turned to me and said, “I only have one chore. School!” The little stinker. We have a lot to work on this summer! 🙂
I hope you are all having a wonderful and relaxing weekend,
and that you have a fun and blessed summer!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
