A month ago, we enthusiastically participated in an online geography class via Journey North. We were doing really well the first couple of weeks, staying on top of the weekly lessons and graphing the photoperiods of the 10 mystery classes. Unfortunately, as the weeks progressed – our lives got crazy busy (mostly my own obligations with yearbook, etc.) We missed a few weeks and fell behind.
Then we departed for a 2-week road trip through British Columbia & Alberta, Canada. When I was packing up our school materials, I asked Sweetie if we should bring it along. Her response was, “I want to do it, Mom, but we are already behind.”
“Shall we just stop then and try again next year?” I asked.
“Yeah. That would be good. I like it but it would take too long to try to catch up now,” she added.
I am disappointed. But at least we can play along vicariously through our homeschool friends that are continuing with the class. 🙂
