Glad to hear he is doing well. He remains on my prayer list.
Thank you!  Jacob remains on ours, as well.

What did you not like of Abeka after 2nd grade?
I felt like they started dumbing the math down.  I had taught 1-3rd grade before I was married, and really liked it (ABeka).  But when my son got closer to that age, I noticed that things were beginning to look more like comic books, and it didn't seem as though they were learning as much as they should have (some of it was what they had learned in 1st grade when I was teaching school).  I was not as unhappy with the english curriculum, so stayed with that through 3rd grade (I found something that worked better for us - Beka's english is good).  I have always liked their Science, though.  And their History is good, but I had to add a lot that I felt wasn't included (did that even when I was teaching, but most teachers do, with any curriculum). 

And I wasn't crazy about some of their readers - they had simply bought the copyright from Macmillan, and so some of the stories weren't what we wanted our son to read.  So we went to the library a lot!

I thought I was alone in that opinion, but have since found out that I wasn't.  But there are still people who love ABeka all the way through - I think it's really a personal preference thing.

But as I said before, their pre-k material is good!

I already put this in the prayer threads, but he just texted me that he was hurting both physically (I'm sure from practice last night) and spiritually.  And he asked for prayer.  Makes me want to hop a plane and go to him.....Please pray.  Thanks.

Since you are already familiar with ABeka, I would suggest considering that one.  That's what we used for our son when he was 3.  I really liked it.  I stopped liking it so much when he got to second grade, but I think the pre and kindergarten curricula are excellent!

Josh called last night.  He's doing well.  He had to have an ingrown toenail removed last week.  It is improving well. 

Last night he tried out and made the company football team.  The first game will be sometime around the second week of Sept.  He was pleased that he made the team.

He finished his first class with a B.  He's not real happy with the grade 'cause he said he didn't put some stuff he knew he should...   By the time he's done with AIT, he will have earned 28 hours towards his Bachelors.  The credits he earned at our college most likely won't transfer since the college isn't accredited...or he'd be almost done!!!  He is pretty excited about having 28 credits!

It's only getting to mid-August.  He won't be home til mid-November...but it's closer than it was before!!

Great song.  Is there a way to get the music for it?

Brother Ken, that is great! I, too, could visualize it.  A very speaking poem.  Thanks!
