So. . .all in all, this year (all three days of it) is off to a good start.
Then there was one more change that we didn't know about until after school on Tuesday. .
Here's to another year. . .I like reading homeschooling blogs but for now, in our lives, this is working. I was a public school teacher and am a public school advocate. . .even though I do think there is more bad then good in some schools. Unfortunately, this can be said about most of society. Home is where values are taught, love is given, examples of what family means is observed. We are blessed to live in a small community where, when you run into the principal of the school the night before schools starts, she knows your family, knows the kids' names, and takes the time to ask what they are looking forward to and listening to what they have to say. And we say the Pledge to the flag. And observe a moment of silence. And do prayer around the flagpole. And our kids can talk freely about Jesus to their classmates and teachers without fear. These are the things that are valuable to Tom and I right now. . .
