School's IN!

Homeschooling 2011-2012 has officially begun in our home!  This will mark our third year homeschooling!  I feel more prepared and excited this year, than I have in past.  I've learned from my fellow homeschooling group, I've prayed, and I've taken note of what works and does not work for us.

I feel so alive for this year.. I pray God will continue to give me the strength, enthusiasm and joy for our upcoming year.

As I mentioned in other posts we are going with themes this year.  The theme will shape our craft time, library visits, and some field trips.  We choose to use Abeka for our curriculum.. and because I am homeschooling two little ones this year I decide to make it 'easier' on myself and just go with the themes that present themselves in Ava's curriculum.  I will veer from it a bit during the holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.. but pretty much I'll stay on course.

This month's theme is "The Pond".. here are just a few pictures of their first day of school.. craft time and a wee bit a face painting!

 Grace.. a butterfly

 Ava.. a lilypad with a frog on it ☺

 Gabriel.. a fish swimming in long grass

Hope everyone is having a great first week back or gearing up for the start of your school year!


  1. Great work on the face painting! :D Here's to a wonderful and God blessed year! :)
