Our First Day of School for 2013-2014

We are officially back in school. I now have 4 "students" which, believe it or not, is the same number of students I had my very first year of teaching in a small Christian school. The Lord has certainly been gracious as I have added school into my Momma Schedule, especially with a newborn along for the ride. (By the way, my Boba wrap has worked wonders in this endeavor!)

I am incredibly thankful for the privilege of teaching these precious children at home and I'm thankful for a husband who supports me in that role. It's something I never thought I would do, but God's ways are better than mine!

Since I'm a little pressed for time these days (ya think??) I thought I'd just give you some pictures of our first day rather than writing a whole post. I hope you enjoy them!

My dear can he be in 3rd Grade??

Our theme this year is Legos. We "do" school in the corner of our living room so I have to admit, I don't go all out in the school type decorations. However, with our Lego theme this year it's nice and calm decorating wise and the kids absolutely love it. Plus, it required no time on my part to do the "decorating." The kids all worked on their Lego "decorations" themselves.

It "just so happened" that Meijer had Lego themed school essentials. How perfect. A little more expensive, but really, how could I say no? Actually, Daddy was the one footing the bill so we have him to thank!
A little external motivator here for not complaining about school (actually, just math.)
Breakfast of Champions...or something like that. Cream of Wheat and Bacon.

The highlight of the day was when I told the kids they could go outside to play and our 3 year old told me, "But I have to do my math!" Math, what math? Oh, you want to learn math. Okay!  The math theme has continued for him over the past 3 days. Maybe he's going to take after his Daddy. ('Cause it certainly won't be his Momma!)

I on the other hand, crashed on the bed as soon as school was over and the kids were in their rooms for quiet time. Phew! It has been a great 3 days so far and I'm so thankful for the Lord's help!
"Many Christians estimate difficulties in the light of their own resources, and thus attempt little and often fail in the little they attempt. All God’s giants have been weak men who did great things for God because they reckoned on His power and presence with them." -Hudson Taylor
