Kindergarten. On it goes.
In fact, today she said, "Can we just skip reading and only do math and handwriting. I hate reading." Ouch! And so I asked, "why do you hate reading?!!!" She said, "because it's so hard and because you get so frustrated with me." Oh my word, dagger straight to my heart. And it's true, I do get so frustrated. The vowels, oh the vowels. She can't get them straight. So, on this particular day, I hang my head in defeat. But after talking to other homeschool moms, we are just going to take a couple of days to regroup, focusing on math and handwriting ;), and maybe the hate--so much hate--towards reading will go away. I can't handle the horror of it. It's reading for goodness sake.
But, we will press on. We are farther than we were six months ago, so we are making progress. The main prayer, that I would keep my mouth shut when I am frustrated. Give me patience, Lord, and kindness, and wisdom. How desperate I am for his grace--as always.
