|Ready for the first day of school!|
We start school between 8:00am and 8:30am in the morning, after devotions, morning chores, and breakfast.
People here think it very strange that we don't send our kids to school. Being foreigners, they expect us to pay big money to enroll them in a good private school. Homeschooling is unheard of here, so we usually just get down to the basic facts: We get curriculum from the US, and Mom's the teacher!
For those of you wondering about "extra-curricular" activities...they also take piano lessons, the older 2 have started flute and guitar, and they take language lessons. Right now they are working on Punjabi. They all have already learned to read and write in Hindi. As for socialization...I guess that's a topic for another post! Better yet, come visit me! If you can make your way through the crowd of kids, teens, and adults that are daily in and out of my house..we'll have a long conversation about socialization!
So..there you have it..Pratt International Christian Academy is open for the 2012-2013 school year.
