For those of you who know me personally, it is no surprise to you that I am a homeschooler by default. I would rather have my children in a Christian school, but there isn't one in our town or anywhere nearby. With that said, for the first time ever I am looking forward to our homeschooling year.
This is truly an answer to prayer. I have struggled with delighting in my role as homeschooling mom, and I've asked for prayer from many people about it. So God gets the glory!
Part of what has helped me is that hubby and I have worked out a morning schedule with each of us doing a small amount of chores and our Family Bible Time.
I have planned an entire semester of lessons!
We're doing a four day school week. Our Christmas break will be shorter, too. I think in the end, getting Saturday & Sunday off, as well as dad's day off during the week, will help all of us. I'd like to be doing school at about the same pace as the public schools so that my kids and play with their friends on days off of school.
I'm starting more deliberate, but still casual, schooling with my 4 1/2 year old. I'm hoping that he'll start picking up more as we go along with his big brother.
So, that's where I am. Pray that I can get up early enough and that we have a lot of fun together tomorrow!
