School Days

I’ve been a bit behind on posting photos lately. One reason is that my heart has been heavy. Another is that my life has been busy. I’ve also been out of batteries for my camera, so I was unable to upload any photos. The Lord has been faithful and is healing my broken heart, little by little, day by day. Life is finally getting back to some sort of rhythm…for now. And, I finally got batteries for my camera! 🙂

We began school on July 6, and are well into our fourth week now. It feels good to be that far along and it’s only August. We are hoping to enjoy some days off in the fall, when the weather is cooler. It’s also nice to know we’re ahead so if we need to take days off for any reason, we can be flexible without the feeling of being behind. I took these photos on our first day of school. I’ve been trying to do this for the last few years. It’s fun to look back and see how they’ve grown.

Lauren, my sweet 7th Grader.
Mitchell, my handsome 4th Grader
Leslie, my precious 1st Grader
Laci, my energetic pre-schooler
The little girls, coloring 4th of July pictures.
Last, but not least, Matthew, my boy genius! Haha!

We are excited about the new school year. I’m really enjoying the flow we have to our days. The children are quite good at doing their chores and beginning their school work with little or no prompting by me. For the first time ever, I am really happy with our math curriculum. Math-U-See promises “No more tears at math time.” I thought that meant for the students, but I haven’t cried once since beginning this new material! 🙂 We enjoy our read aloud time and the kids love using ACE for their other subjects. Laci has had fun with our pre-school workbooks from Rod & Staff. She likes “doing school”. All in all we are off to a really good start. I’ve got so much more to share, but will have to do so in another post. Little ones are needing me. (I love my job!) 🙂

Have a great day!
