Free Coding Class Online

Have you guys heard of Codecademy? I'm going to get Noah started on this today; I love free, and I think this is a very valuable skill. As a matter of fact, learning this skill roughly twenty years ago is what got my very smart and computer-savvy husband on his career track. Nowadays he doesn't do much coding for his 9-5 job, but does have a small side web-development business. Plus, over the years he's been able to help lots of people with websites, and donate his skills to bless churches with updated sites.

I am so glad that I can rearrange Noah's workload (perhaps give Mavis Beacon a rest for a while?) so he can focus on what he (and I) want him to. Yes, my house is a wreck, laundry beckons, and I am still wearing spit-up stained pajamas. Despite those things and the sometimes chaotic-feel to our days, I love being here with my kids, learning with them and directing their learning every day. Three cheers for homeschooling!
