Welcome to school!
The "lunch room"-as they like to call it.
First day of school pics.
It was the first day of school for our family today. Caleb and Hermela started first grade and Caroline and Meron are doing Pre-K work. Colton's hanging out with us as well-I'm always surprised by how much he picks up just by being in the same room as us.
This is our second year home schooling-something I really never set out to do, but now that we are committed to it, I can't imagine doing anything else. We feel it is the best way to raise our children for the Lord. Plus, I can't imagine them all being gone for most of the day. Colton and I wouldn't know what to do with ourselves.
We converted our living room into a school room. Our school district has a surplus store, so we got all of their desks for just $25! The kids love having their own little desks and I love seeing my little students in them.
We had a pretty good first day of school with the exception of "recess" being rained out. I'm looking forward to this year and seeing the kids grow and learn together.
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
“You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. “You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.
