September 1st...

There's a lot of hype in my social circle as today is when most of the kids return to school.  I say "most" because my own will be home today.  They will go to school tomorrow and then home again on Friday.  In case you are new to my blog or didn't know, my kids go to school part time and are homeschooled part time.  They attend a small school specifically designed for home educators and are taught by teachers on Tuesday and Thursday.  The subjects done at school are Social, Science, Art, Gym, and Music while I teach Math and Language Arts at home on the other three days.  I'm not 100% sure when I will begin the home part... maybe today, maybe Friday or maybe even next Monday.  That's the joy of home education.
I want to be organized this year.  Generally, I don't like to stick to a hard schedule but I'd like to follow some sort of  routine.
My goals this school year are:
  • to maintain a positive attitude towards learning and hope my kids do the same
  • to help build into their lives, a solid foundation that is Christ Centered
  • to make Bible study (reading, learning, living) a daily focus
  • to encourage the kids' potential to the fullest and making them proud of what they do and who they are
  • reading... lots of reading.  I hope that they will learn to love to read like I do
It's going to be a good year.  I have one in grade 6, one in grade 5 and one in grade 1.  Here's to a new year!!


  1. Best of luck for an awesome year to you and the kiddos, Stephanie! Your goals sound perfect:)

  2. I heard of a private school here locally that does that too and I was definitely considering it for my daughter when she is old enough. I think it's such a great way from keeping moms from getting burned out and keeping the kids active with other kids. I hope it's still an option when my daughter is old enough.
