Back to School...

t-chiu-country-schoolhouse
Good morning! Today is our first day back to school. Grace is going into 6th grade, Emily into 5th and Benjamin into 3rd.

We are using the Sonlight curriculum (core 3 and 5) and the girls are taking a Creative Writing and Spanish class once a week. Boy Scouts and Faith Keepers is also starting back up this evening, so it will be a busy day. Wish us luck!

I don't think I would have had the patience to have home schooled my boys. Plus, I don't think they would have listened to me anyway. One is now a teacher in a classical Christian school. Started his first year last week.

Kelli, Grace, Emily and Benjamin,

I hope you all have a wonderful and exciting school year.

Kids, I know your mom is a wonderful teacher and roll model. You will have a lot of fun learning from her. Faith Keepers and Boy Scouts sound like fun, too. Enjoy!

Love, Debbi

Sounds very excitting! Im itching to start with one of my children (My son will start first grade homeschool) but we are estimating that the curriculum won't come in until begining of Sept. My 2 older daughters will be starting their 2nd year at a christian school from having been homeschooled. Thus far they have been blessed by it.

You will have a busy,full day! May God bless it richly!

Have a wonderful school year you guys! The first days back at the the fall routine are filled with so much excitement! My daughters are starting their college coursework this week, but we will not begin our subjects here at home for another two weeks. Still trying to finish up gardening stuff, school planning, last minute decluttering, etc. Hope your year is off to a GREAT start!

I hope school goes wonderfully for you and the family! Also that the busy-ness of all the activities is fun.

Kaia starts school tomorrow and is so excited for 1st grade. I think Mo is looking forward to getting rid of her for awhile too.

Have a wonderful week!
