Today was the day!
Our first day of school. We have been preparing for this day for a couple of weeks, cleaning the desk, switching last years books for shiny new ones, making schedules and today it was finally our day. I love being a homeschool mom. I love that it is me who gets to watch there eyes open wide when they learn something new, I even love the hard moments (love not like) because those victories are so sweet to watch. We celebrated our first day with a special waffle dinner. In the morning we will be up bright and early and go to our homeschool "school" we attend a school one day a week with about 1,000 other homeschool students. Yes I did mean to type 1,000 isn't that amazing. The girls are excited to see their friends and teachers. Grace my 12 year old will be taking Ballet, Chemistry, Grammar, Literature, Movie Making and she will assist in an American Girl class. Faith my 8 year old will be taking Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Chemistry, Art, American Girl, and Ukulele. They should have a very fun year. I will be teaching a class called Growing Girls In Grace and will sharing more about my class in the next few weeks. So if you ever wonder what we are doing on Tuesday - now you know.
Let's move on to the pretty pictures!
Our Homeschool sign, I will be sharing more about it later this week.
My favorite sound in our house is the two of you giggling together, it brings a smile to my face everytime.
As I am writing this I can hear the giggles coming from the bedroom as you have one of your regular spend the night partys together. Always remember to giggle together.
Grace, how is it that you are this grown up? Every time I look at you I am just blown away. You are a beautiful girl but the great thing is you heart is even more beautiful. I love that you choose to serve over play so often, God has BIG plans for you and I can't wait to see them play out.
Faith, where has my baby gone? I love that your hands are still little girl chubby, it makes my heart melt every time I look at them. Your desire to live life to the fullest is so cool to watch you have the passion it takes to change things. Your passion is going to be put to great use for the kingdom of God.
I am so blessed to be a mother,
I love my life!
