Meet Tuck!


Tuck, our youngest son just turned 16 this past September and is beginning to study for his learner's permit. He is a man of many interests. Boredom is something he hardly knows. After school each day he is busy in our vegetable garden (fall crop is in) or working on his garden pond environment, down at the farm driving or riding horses, setting up tree stands for hunting or working on improvements for the chicken house, mowing for his brother who is law school, or most recently helping his older brother Nate put new windows and siding on our house. He is trying to squeeze in more reading time, but the days seem too short.
He is a favorite of all the grandchildren. They love to be involved in all his interests and learn from him. He is setting a goal of finishing school a year early and to do so is doing extra work this year. He has some specific goals of skills he'd like to improve like speed reading and spelling and subjects to learn. Next year I think I'll find some forestry textbooks for him. I always tell him if I ever get lost in the woods, I want him with me. He has learned lots of survival skills and ways to do things.
Tuck is quiet, a man of few words, but carefully placed words when he does speak. He's taught me a lot during the process of teaching him schoolwork. He has a very logical mind and for years was frustrated with the English language. He enjoys being with his brothers and sisters and doing outside activities.

-Favorite Pastimes- Hunting, Horse back riding, Fishing, Vegetable Gardening

-Interests: Trees, Raising Animals, Garden Ponds

-Something God is teaching you: The importance of spending consistent time in His Word

-Favorite Food: Roast

-A Favorite childhood memory:Doing various things with my older brothers

-1 reason you are glad you were homeschooled:Having good influences around me and not just people my own age

-A favorite person in History/why: Sgt. Alvin York for his bravery and answering the call to duty

Check Out Some of Tuck's Favorite Learning Parent Products:


The Runt audiobook - "an adventure story that teaches, too"
Attack on Pearl Harbor- "follow real people through situations that really happened to them and then later in life to see how their life turned out- Extremely fascinating, personal view of history"
On My Own Biographies -"interesting reading material"
Book of Proverbs CD's-"good for learning God's Word"
Landing of the Pilgrims- "it is the true story, not politically correct one"

I loved reading this! My 16 year old son, Matthew, just got his learner's permit. It is so good to see how other boys his age are doing and what they are up to!!!

Tuck sounds a lot like my son!

Tuck sounds like a wonderful young man. Thanks for giving us an update on what he's doing. I've included another link to your website from my blog. I did a little post on the "Celebrate Thanksgiving" curriculum. I sent an email to the Notgrass's to ask if I could use the photo, and they gave me permission, but I bought the unit study from you, so I wanted to include a link for you too.
Blessings,
Marcia

This is marvelous. I have a son, age 5, who just spent three hours in the garage next to his grandpa (who was adding a woodburning stove to our heating system) pounding together a race track for his cars.

I definitely be adding Tuck's favorite books to my wish list for my son's future reading lists. This was incredibly helpful. Thank you.
