As a parent I am very protective over my children and would do anything for them.  I celebrate with them in their accomplishments and mourn with them in their struggles.

My little love (affectionately called Thing 2) has been struggling in reading at school.  He is showing improvement at home but at school he has been moved back in the reading group and spelling group at school.  This doesn't sit well with me since he's been in a special group that is supposed to help improve his reading.  We worked hard on it.

I should stop here and point out I LOVE his school.  I love his teacher.  I think the staff of the school is amazing.  And his class is filled with good kids.  Taking him out of the school and quitting my job to provide his education at home is not an option.

God provided us with another option this morning.  I pulled him out of his reading tutorial group this afternoon.  We had been putting so much time into the tutoring and it just wasn't working.  So now I am his reading tutor.  We have a program we are going to be working from.

I am going to be spending a lot of time on my knees because I have to learn to teach from the only one that can teach me.  God is going to have to show me how to help little love grow and blossom in the area he has been struggling with.  I can't do it in my own strength.  I need wisdom.

I am nervous and excited all at the same time.  Any of my homeschooling friends/followers that have advice please share.
