Another school year…



Though we typically “school” all year round and take breaks throughout the year (home school rocks right??!), we started a little tradition last year of hosting an end of the year open house where the girl’s set up all of their past school work from the year on a table and take their drop-in guests through some of what they learned. The beautiful thing about this is that I do none of the talking or explaining. And if I try, they remind me “No mama, I want to tell!” I love watching them with eagerness and anticipation as they take each guest from the door to their schoolwork and show them the year’s achievements….We enjoy lemonade and some treats to celebrate moving up to another grade – always a mix of emotions for me, feeling so proud and watching them grow coupled with relief and gratitude over another school year that God has graciously escorted us through. Look out folks, we now have a 1st and 3rd grader around here! IMG_5424
