This is my first year of homeschool. I'm 10-years old. I get to decide when I want to graduate from high school and start college!
Right now I'm on a fast track. My plan is to graduate in five years. Maybe six years. Then I'm going to college to be a veterinarian. I already told you about my big dream of living on a ranch. I'm going to have my own horse, too.
Grandma found Ron Paul's curriculum and so that's how this blog got started. He believes that writing is the most important skill to have in life. Writing online is how we communicate every day, so every student has a blog.
Ron Paul teaches us to study hard, to write well, and to begin earning money right away by doing something you really love.
Grandma helps me with spelling and grammar, because it's important that you can read what I'm writing!
Well, I love horses! And I am learning as much as I can about horses. Every chance I get, I go riding. So you can expect me to write a lot about horses. I also love bunnies, rats, and all kinds of animals. That's why I want to be a vet.
I even like to do math. I do three to four lessons of math every day. And it is great. In spelling today I did six pages by myself without Grandma. It was a surprise.
I also like the McGuffey's Readers. It is a reading thing.
I also like to play the piano and the violin. Those are cool instruments. I hope to get a violin of my own as soon as I can.
I do The Orange Book for Language arts. And we do all sorts of things diffrent things on some days, like history, science, and art.
We have fun with other homeschool families. We hang out, go on field trips, and have some classes together. The kids are really nice. They tease but they do it to make you laugh and it doesn't hurt you. They make me feel good about myself.
We acts in plays together, jump on trampolines, and watch movies together, too. Sometimes we go hiking out in nature.
My grandpa is a scientist. We go on hikes in the woods and he teaches me about everything we see in nature and how the world works.
Grandma is a writer. We are always reading books, doing art, sewing, baking, and crafts.
My mom is a paralegal and she's really smart. She keeps me thinking positively. We have had so many adventures together! And I can't wait for our next one.

It's been a hard year and a good year for me. The things that were hard are turning into the best things. I might tell you more about that next time.
Grandma says that's what happens when you think positive thoughts and believe in yourself.
I hope you believe in your dreams and have people to help you! That's what homeschool is all about.
