*(question: uh, how does one say 'sneak out' in the past tense? ...sneaked out just does NOT sound right.)
Below, I will be posting a picture of some of my boys' handwriting/copywork samples from this past week. I know that once you see my boys' handwriting you will be able to say to yourself, heh! ... my kid IS normal! So, let's just go ahead and get this out in the open... My kids are not over-acheiver homeschooler super-human specimans who have impeccable handwriting (...are you okay with that? will you still read my blog sometimes?) Now that I've made my confession, you can admit it too, and we'll all breathe a sigh of relief because we all know exactly what to expect of each other... normalness.
I'm glad we got that out of the way...
OKAY. Moving right along...

While, this sample is a far cry from what I taught him using Cursive First,
Now, a certain other child of mine (who alas, disallowed his sample from being posted) is of the opinion that neat handwriting is not really very necessary as it is becoming somewhat of a lost art. He reasons that typing skills are much more necessary. And how might you think I responded to that? I said the teacherly thing. of course. I sung the praises of having neat handwriting, how admirable a trait it is, and I did not fail to mention that I write notes when I'm studying my Bible in the morning by hand, and that I journal by hand, and...
Well, I'm curious, what would you have said?
So how would you rate your kids' handwriting on a scale of 1 - 10?
Is there a difference between your girl's and boy's handwriting?
Does anyone even care about handwriting nowadays?
