While Duncan has various areas of study in which there is room for improvement and growth, he excels in others. For example, we're using a sixth grade math book, he's met all of the space science objectives through eighth grade, he reads at a high school level, and his writing is strong. As a result, he really doesn't fit inside of a specific, conventional grade level.

When we first started our home school adventure, we weren't sure how permanent our situation would be. Consequently, we did what we could to ensure that Duncan's transition back into public school would be as seamless as possible, just in case homeschooling didn't work out for us. Likewise, we made minimal changes in our home, shying away from modifications that seemed permanent. We didn't want to stray too far from our "before we homeschooled" world, just in case.
