I decided to start school on a Friday this year because it is the first time we use the ABEKA videos and I would like to go through Day 1 and have the weekend to assimilate the routine. I believe is going to be a good year! This is the second year of homeschooling for us. My oldest is starting 2nd grade and my little one is going to do 3 year old stuff! :)
Our vision for this school year is: LOL. It is not "laugh out loud" :) It stands for Listen, Obey, and Learn! and of course have fun as we do this :)
Our one word for this year is: Obedience. We need to learn, individually and as a family, to obey God and His word. I plan to put this word in practice in everything we do.
