Wow, here we are. In mid-March, my thought was, HOW are we going to do this for 2 weeks!? It’s been 2.5 months. The older girls mostly worked on their own, but my full-time job became “teacher” to MiniLu everyday for most of the day. There were days when tears were shed by both of us. But WE DID IT! I am incredibly proud of her – academics never came easy for her, but she worked SO hard and excelled (even under the guidance of this perfectionistic mom). I’m also grateful for the guidance & support of her teachers. She had Chinese lesson daily via Zoom and I was so impressed by how much she’s learning! As for my preschooler, I just tried my best to keep him busy while his main companion was doing schoolwork. He taught himself all the way to 1st/2nd grade level in math & reading ๐Ÿ˜‚ It was a challenging few months in many ways, but so rewarding as well. Hooray for last day of school!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ #lastdayofschool #minithelu #Toshinator #quarantine2020 #homeschoolmom #notforthismom ๐Ÿ˜†
