One drawback to the type of schooling we do is the lack of any sort of milestone, closure or measurable accomplishment. We know we're making progress, but we don't get very many celebrations of it.
I decided to arbitrarily create one this week. Curly has been slowly working through a Wal-Mart reading workbook for the past 18 months. It started out way beyond her level and suddenly she caught up to it and the last few pages have been fairly easy. As she finished it I made a big deal out of filling out the certificate and hanging it on the fridge.
Her reward? We're going to the store to pick out another workbook. Such is the joy of learning!
