Home School!

I am in full new-home-school-mom mode right now! My days are filled pouring over curriculum guides and examining scope & sequence. It can be maddening, especially to someone like me who has to have every detail of a new endeavor planned out months before it ever happens! The one thing I do know is that I am SO EXCITED to be embarking on this new adventure. Aron & I are 99% sure we have chosen the curriculum we like, and it intertwines the Bible throughout every subject. I tear up a little thinking that my kids will have a creation-based, Biblically sound education as opposed to what I grew up with. I went to "good" schools with "good" teachers, but public school could not HOPE to prepare me to be a Christian adult. One of the great things about home school is that you are getting your academics, but at the same time you are learning about Christ, relationships, manners, morals, values ... the list goes on and on. And all the things aside from academics are what this life is really about. Those are the things that will last into eternity. And while I want Ariana to be able to multiply and Aidan to read, even more than that I want them to have a thriving relationship with the Savior. Pray for me as I start this new chapter ... and pray for my family. :)
