I seriously wonder if I have half a brain. I could never do math and figure I must have part of my brain missing; the part that can do math. In school I got good marks(A’s and B’s)…all except for dreaded math that is; I always struggled and failed miserably(like 35%) and it always brought my average down! Only in the final year of highschool(where I didn’t have to take math!!) was I able to get on the Honour Roll, because the low math grade didn’t bring down the rest of my good average!! With the homeschooling I teach all subjects except math; my hubby does the math in the higher grade and I only do it up to grade 4 but I even struggle with that. It makes me feel so frustrated and dumb. I even have a hard time when “borrowing” from a zero…I can never figure out how that works and forget about multiplication: I still can’t do the 7’s,8’s,9′, and 12’s! I am the ultimate math retard!!
Our 2 oldest have started their classes away at university now as well and the oldest was really sick: he had to go on antibiotics; may have been a sinus infection or possibly the Swine Flu. He had been sick lots last school year as well, and been to the ER several times, and even had Strep Throat!
