Hip Hip Hooray for School!

Yes, it's true.....we've started school this year! When our books came in early the children begged and pleaded for us to start early! I'm so glad that they are so excited! It's actually a great advantage for our family. We have several missions conference between now and Christmas, and sometimes services are planned for during the day, we'll be taking an extra long Christmas break since the baby is due shortly after, and then we'll be taking an extended Spring Break to move to Canada! Since we're starting a month early, I think we should finish on time! We use the A beka curriculum, which is an Awesome curriculum! This is our 3rd year to use the DVD program and we LOVE it! I was telling my Mom that I feel like we've really learned how to use the system very well. We're starting a couple of new time savers and incentive programs. Ideas are just flowing out of our heads on how to do things! It's going to be a great year.
One of the things I love about A beka is that there is a Christian perspective to everything they do. They are always going back to the Bible and how the Lord made everything, and how we should serve Him. I'm so thankful that the children have a Godly influence in their life....even if it is through the DVD. I think Taylin would agree, you feel like you truly get to know the teacher and the students in class. I'm so thankful!

  1. Glad you're starting school early, that way when the kids say "I need a break, let's take the day OFF" You will say "great idea!" Looks like they are so happy to be starting. I can't believe they are in the 4th, 5th and 7th grades. They're growing up fast. Soon they'll be graduating.
    Have fun and learn a lot.
