I should note that Matthias is not in Gr 9 in all subject areas. He is maturing by leaps and bounds, and his ability to accept instruction and his interest in buckling down are far better than they were. The subjects where he has gaps are being addressed with real focus this year. In particular, I’m hoping that he will learn to stop psyching himself out – he talks himself into being intimidated by things. Confidence is a big goal this year.

Thank you so much for sharing this! After your last post describing your coffee shop planning session, I was so curious to know more details. Your children are so very lucky!! I’m jealous and wish I could study with you, too 🙂
