the journey of homeschooling has been rewarding in every way. i treasure each and every moment with my children…honestly.
we have been homeschooling for four years now. the kids and i have shared laughter, quiet moments, tears, frustration, joy, hugs, holding hands, smiles and winks. we sing outloud, dance and twirl. i wouldn’t trade my ordinary day at home for anything!
i am so so thankful to be able to pray with the kids throughout the day. we pray when we hear an ambulance, we pray when we’re wrong, we pray when someone is hurt, we pray when we need patience, we pray thankfulness for all we have, we pray for devastated countries, we pray that God would keep us humble.
our first order of curriculum should be arriving any day. it is a very big day when a new box of full of crisp books, clean pages, unwrinkled paper, and new subjects arrive.
This is the chalkboard in our school room. The story is: my dad found four great chalkboards leaning against a dumpster right outside a local bakery. They were changing their displays and were just going to throw them out! Yikes! He gave this one to me.
I wiped it down and proceeded to hand paint several little whimsical designs on the borders, right on the wood. I did this last year before I began blogging so I didn’t even think to document the process. 🙁
