Chrysalis, how my ideal teaching method would be

This is an article I wrote about the ideals for our little homeschool class.


Homschool snippet: this is my month’s salary!

Me, to our awesome cleaning lady: So how’s Javi’s (her little son) school application going?

Mrs Marjorie: Everything is done!, Javi is starting school in a couple of weeks. I can`t believe he’s in first grade already!

My son: What? Javi is going to school? Like to a school with other kids and teachers and classrooms?

Mrs Marjorie: Yes, he is going to a big school.

My son: That is horrible… poor Javi. He’ll get super bored.

At night, at thanksgiving time, in which, by the way, I am HARDLY ever mentioned at all…

My son: I am thankful cause my mom teaches me, cause she doesn’t scream, and her classes are funny, and cause she has elephants and I am allowed to learn how to be an inventor.

This was last night. I am still floating on his sweet light. Everything is worth it folks. They appreciate it.
