Well, what’s that old saying? Better late than never? Ha! I’m really late posting these photos, that’s for sure! Our first day of school here at the Basham hacienda was Monday, August 7, 2017. We hit the ground running! I have been so busy, that I am just now getting this written.
We began our fourth week of school yesterday! Time sure has a way of zipping by, doesn’t it?

Our first few weeks have gone well. The kids are enjoying using the Teaching Textbooks for math, which has, in turn, helped me tremendously also. It is a blessing not to have to grade math – especially Algebra II! We have read 1 John together and are beginning the book of John. I’m interested in getting THIS book for further Bible study. We are using Abeka, ACE, and Apologia in other subjects. We are also looking forward to participating in our homeschool co-op for the second year beginning September 11. I’m even getting to teach not one, but two history classes!
Lord willing, this will be a fabulous year for us.
On August 21, 2017, Lauren began the fall semester at Cameron University.
She has survived her first week of classes: Intro to Criminal Justice, English Comp II, Statistics, American Federal Government, and University Life. She has also been to several campus activities and worked 20 hours at her job at the University Library. It’s a busy time full of new adventures. We would appreciate your prayers for her as she takes on so many new responsibilities.
And for me, too, as I let her. 🙂
