From Kylie's Pen

What is really neat about homeschooling for 4th grade is I get to read everything that Kylie is doing and I know exactly what she is learning.   It’s been really fun getting to know Kylie in many ways I would not be able to if she were in a traditional school setting.  One of her penmanship assignments for today was to write an essay about where she would go if she could choose just one place in the world.  Here is what she wrote:

Dear Journal,

If I could travel anywhere in the world, it would be Ukraine.  I picked this unexpected country where not many English people would go because my two brothers were adopted there.  I’d love to go with my dad and go to a few orphanages and see the kids, play with them, and learn a new language.  I’d also love to eat the food there.  If I could go to Brandon’s orphanage, and meet his friends, and especially teach them God’s Word it would be awesome.  I’d love to go to more places in the world as well, but I picked Ukraine for my essay.

  1. What a special essay! I enjoy homeschooling also. It allows me to see a more personal side of my children's schooling. May the Lord continue to bless your family.
