Till our school year starts!
Where did the summer go?
When I was in school, I remember starting AFTER Labor Day.
Well, I guess the upside to starting early, is ending earlier next year.
So, now I will have a Freshman, an 8th, 5th, 3rd, and 2nd grader! Wha????
I can't believe this is our 9th year of homeschooling!
I told my eldest that this is when it "counts." Not that it didn't count before, but high school is no joke. I know I will have to stay on top of him to make sure he stays on track.
The one thing (which was the most important) that I failed to do last year was have a devotion with them in the morning. This way, our day starts off right, and it's not as chaotic during the day. Not that it won't ever be, but at least our hearts will be in the right place (especially me). It's not enough for me to have my alone time with the Lord, but we all need to be in one accord.
One thing my oldest daughter requested was that we do more field trips. I'm glad our church has a homeschool group, and they plan trips throughout the year. But, of course, we won't be limited to just that.
All the new curriculum is organized, and the kids dread hearing me say, "We're staring school in one week!"
So, have your kids started school already?
