Last week we were out of town so this week the kids all began their extra-curricular activities. I like having a slow start to a full curriculum and extra curricular activity schedule. So, next week, we will begin core subjects - Math, Reading, Handwriting then the following week we will add in History, Music, Art and Nature Journaling. I find that a slow ramp up is good for the kids and myself.
As I gear up to head out of town for one more quick trip before school starts I feel a sense of calm about our school year beginning. I feel as I turn more and more of my trust in our school year over to God that he frees me of any worry. Our homeschool bible verse for the year is:
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:33
