but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31

Last Day of School

Well today is our official last day of school!!!
The children finished up some of their subjects early, but today they are done with everything. Another year down.
I am really looking forward to next year. We have decided to put the girls into school. The school is very close to the house and both girls could go there for one year until K goes on to middle school. There were many considerations that went into this decision. I won't list them all, but we feel that it is the right decision for our family at this time. That is not to say that we can't pull them out and home school at any given point if we are not happy with their education.
The boys will continue to home school and I am excited about their curriculum for next year. I always feel like that when I start ordering curriculum. They will be using the following curriculum next year.
Math--Teaching Textbooks
Grammar & Composition--Abeka
Reading & Comprehension--Total Language Plus
Science, History, Bible, Spanish, Health--Switched On Schoolhouse


A little girl had just finished her first week of school. When her mom asked her what she thought about school, she replied, "I'm just wasting my time. I can't read, I can't write, and they won't let me talk!"

Please take time today to remember the sacrifice of others. I would like to say "Thank You" to all soldiers who have willingly given so much to protect this county.

Kindergarten Beginners Day

With much prayer we have decided to put the girls in public school next year. A will be in Kindergarten and K will be in 5th grade.
Yesterday was Beginners Day at the local school and K and I took A in to the school and stayed for an informational meeting while A went to the classroom for Kindergarten. There was an envelope with some work in it for A to take to the classroom with her. She asked me if it was her lessons. When I told her yes she said, "Ah man, I didn't know that I would have to do lessons!" I chuckled and asked her what she thought that she would be doing in Kindergarten. She said, "Read, play outside, and color." That sounds about right to me. LOL
