Back To School

Back-to-SchoolI have prayed over our 2013-2014 school year. Goals for the year have been set.  Our study focus is decided and brain storming lists are filling up with possibilities.  The letter of intent, required my our state law, has been mailed.  The attendance records are printed and sorted into folders.  New binders and supplies are waiting to be used.  There are daily plans on the chart. I have a coffee and chocolate.   I am ready!

Today is our first day back to full time homeschooling.   E’s starting her senior year and she is excited.  B is in 10th this year, and I see no visible signs of excitement.  J covers his ears and yells, “I don’t want to hear it!”  every time schooling is mentioned.   Z has been practically begging to get going on the 3rd grade.

I’m smiling and confident.  Smiling and confidence are  good ways for me to kick off my 16th year of this homeschooling journey.  Smiling and confidence are good for all of us homeschooling mamas, don’t you agree?

I’m sharing some links to help with that!

A cute co-op group and those silly questions that we get asked.

A very sweet prayer for the homeschooling mama, (even addresses my concern over algebra)

No matter how our first day back goes, I know it won’t be as terrible as this one!

A always remembering this!

    Oh my that video may be the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. I’ve already shared it with several people. Of course it’s all true but I just loved the way they did it. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks Sandra, actually I debated with myself about posting it. I thought it was hilarious, but then thought someone might be a bit offended by it. I glad you found it funny!
