Ladies and Gentlemen, children of all ages I have an announcement to make.

Nope. Not preggers. Carter isn't walking and I am NOT running for president. Here is the scoop:

K5 Learning has an online reading and math program for kindergarten to grade 5 students.  I've been given a 6 week free trial to test and write a review of their program.  If you are a blogger, you may want to check out their  open invitation to write an online learning review of their program. 

Now before you think I have turned to the dark side and started putting cash in front of my peeps, you are wrong. While I am getting to use this for free, I will be completely honest. Since we are being honest I get review offers fairly often and I always decline, but here is the catch: I need this. Cam ditty is about to cross the line and get himself signed up for the big K. I really want to homeschool him and keep his crazy antics and hilarious little spirit all to myself, BUT, there is one thing that is holding me back. The R word. It is, in my opinion, THE most important factor in education. Reading. And it gives hives, for real. I have been doing a free  homeschool Kindergarten program I found online with him since the beginning of the year but it doesn't seem to really be teaching THAT much.

Cam is trying to teach himself to read but I am afraid, because I am clueless as how to teach him. CLUELESS! I read and read all these blogs and books and everyone has a different approach, by the time I am done I am chugging Benadryl to clear my unsightly rash. 

I am truly excited about this.  I homeschool my oldest right now, Cam and possibly 4 ( he's the spitfire) next year. 2 and 3 maybe the year after that, if I can convince the husband that they are getting a quality education.  Don't worrry folks, I won't let you down. Give me about 6 weeks and you will know how it went.

Now I am off to help a 4th grader make a 3D Under Armour Valentine box. It includes working with sharp objects, tape, glue, paper, and paint. I can feel your jealousy...
