It seems last year was survival and amazingly enough at times we even thrived. It was the first year of our adventure. We moved (#11). I finished my first book. Anders got potty-trained and overcame speech difficulties. Larsen took off with reading and learned how this whole home-school thing works. We had unsteady employment. I was pregnant and gave birth to our beautiful girl three weeks ago. Looking back, I suppose it was a lot but endurance is addicting when it is all you know and when you are simply being faithful to what God has given you to do. I find this exhilarating!
We are about to venture on another year. Larsen (9) will start third grade and Anders (3 1/2) will start Pre-K. Our newest edition, Kiersta (3 wks.) will be going the journey too. I spent the last couple of months reviewing books, reading up on classical philosophy and planning the first 12 weeks of school, down to daily lesson plans. I learned last year big-time that without detailed planning, the house will be built on the sand and sink.
We are going to rock and roll this Monday (9/14) and step up the quality of the blog this year, if for nothing else than my own records!
