So the audition went well. J was in the last group of kids, so she didn't get out of there until after 2pm. Six hours. She said it was great and the wait wasn't so bad. She was with a couple of friends and the time flew by. One down, 2 to go.

W took his first quiz. TT5 gives you a quiz after the first 7 lessons. W was so excited about it. He called B to tell him that he's taking his first quiz ever, lol. There were 24 math problems to do and he got only 1 wrong - and that's only because he rushed the answer. I was so proud of him. The first 7 lessons were:

1- Number patterns, even/odd
2- Place value to the hundred thousands
3- Writing numbers in words (and vice-versa) to the hundred thousands
4- Place value and writing numbers in words to the hundred millions
5- Greater than/Less than (large numbers)
6- Addition basics (sum, commutative property, addends, identity property)
7- Subtraction basics (difference, using addition to check answer)

He enjoys this program immensely. In other academic news, today's copywork was writing out a Christmas wish-list using a toy catalogue, and today's readings were Understood Betsy, The Little Duke, and Farmer Boy. His narrations just keep getting better and better.
