Portfolios are done!

Rate this Entry
I completed our second year portfolios last night and I feel such a huge weight off of my shoulders!

I am making better plans for this coming year-ways to make sure that we log everything and that the older children have more responsibility in that department. My (current youngest) son is officially starting this year and all of that record keeping is going to be the end of if the girls can help then that would just be great.

Our evaluation will be on Sunday-I'm looking forward to it because then I can relax before we officially start least for a moment, right?

It was nice to go back and look at everything that was done this year. I submit a bare-bones portfolio for evaluation...I figured there's no reason to give the state more than the state asks for, right? But I do write up a summary of everything that we did...more for myself and the evaluator than for the state..and that's the only thing I do that is not required.
