As homeschoolers, I guess today is as good a day as any to deem it "the first day of school." I say that because we pretty much school all year round...with some extended breaks, of course!
On Saturday, the girls finally got home from their grandparents' which marked the end of our summer vacations. We have a lot of things coming up in August with the start of Classical Conversations and soccer and music lessons, so I thought it best to get a good jumpstart on school.
Here are our first day pics...
Cursive handwriting, multiplication, piano lessons, oh my! I have great memories of my third grade year. Hopefully, AG will enjoy it, too.
To be accurate, Edy is about half-way through her Kindergarten year. I started in January with reading, math, handwriting, and CC. Yesterday, she began Saxon 1st grade math and she's truckin' right along as a reader.
I cannot believe I have an almost eight year old! Ava Grace is a beautiful, caring, and smart little girl. She loves Jesus and it shows! I am so thankful for the work the Holy Spirit is doing in her life and I pray she continues to let His light shine before others!
Edy is such a loving, funny, spunky, free-spirited, and adorable little girl. It's truly awesome that I get to call her my daughter! To hear her pray is to be blessed by what the Lord is working out in her.
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Phillipians 1:6
I'll end with little comparison...
