Living in Hawaii was like a dream, but we had to still live in reality. I had to cook, clean, care for the toddlers, and find exciting ways to homeschool my daughter.
Our Curriculum for 2008-2009
- Story of the World Book 3
- Singapore Math
- Apologia Science – Botany
She attended the base school for one month – October/November. She quit before Thanksgiving.
Her teacher yelled and criticized and left her alone during recess in the trailer as punishment. She developed anxiety and stomach pains. She was threatened by another student during a field trip. They did no science, history, or language that month. It was just random worksheet packets.
We met a Tuskegee Airman.
We visited Pearl Harbor memorials.
There were homeschool opera field trips, dress rehearsals that were free for students.
Liz played soccer, tried tennis lessons, and took piano lessons. We went whale watching. We explored the islands. She won Jump Rope for Heart. She won an art contest and writing contest! She began track.
There were times when Liz had to attend events alone or with her dad. I had to stay home with the two toddlers.
