Big vs. Teeny

How's that for a BIG DOG ! I took Peanut and bug to be tested for the end of their homeschool year, and the teacher raises Great Danes. While the kids took their tests Baby Girl and I hung out with "Godiva" she was huge ! And soooo sweet. Baby Girl thought she was a hoot, she just kept giggling :)
Btw~The kids did awesome on their tests !!! I was so proud :) Peanut tested 2 grades ahead in most subjects and Bug tested at 99% for critical thinking and general knowledge. She knew as much in general knowledge as 10 grader ! Spelling was a weak spot for both of them, so we will be working on that a lot more. We did a lot of "unschooling" this year vs. straight book work and it payed off.
As a homeschooling mom I worry that I am not doing enough , so this made me feel good. On to next year :)
