Kuya was eager to start learning:
|Kuya the scholar|
So was Dodong:
|Dodong is a scholar too!|
Our "classroom" is set up in our living room, in front of the TV. This is so that Kuya can sit at his desk and watch the instructional DVDs.
|Our home "classroom"|
One of the advantages of home schooling is that Sweetie can give Kuya individualized attention which just isn't possible in a classroom setting.
|Showing Kuya what to do|
Since this is still a lower elementary class, (second grade), coloring is part of the curriculum.

Grump's doctor gave him some drugs to help with his cough, but after two nights with very little sleep Grump was ...... well, grumpy. He spent most of the day hiding in the bedroom while Sweetie tried to single handedly get Kuya's homeschooling up and running.
For dinner we went to the wonderful Taki restaurant for a meal we probably can't afford. But what the heck ..... we can't afford anything anymore. It seems every month Grump is having to take money out of his "retirement" savings to pay the bills. Is this the new normal for Americans?
