More or Less Homeschooling & Home-making Adventure

I am a work in progress. I am striving to be an encouraging wife, a fun and loving homeschool mother, to learn to homestead, organize, and adapt. I desire to see life more like Jesus and less like the world's view of what's important. I praise God that I am saved by grace alone, through faith alone, by Christ alone! Cuz' I CAN'T DO IT ON MY OWN!

School's starting

Though the summer heat is not over yet, it is finally time to start the new year. Our family has had a very trying summer and I am now working full time with our family business. My wonderful friend has offered to help me out during this season and will be schooling my kiddos on Tuesday and Thursday. What a blessing this is. I have most of my curriculum ready and hope to post it soon. Because of my friend's wonderful offer, I have switched years this year. Rather than moving on to year 4, we are doing year 5. My friend uses My Father's World and she is studying countries and cultures. It was just easier to switch years and study countries along with her than to try to do my year 4 three days a week. Our first week went well. The kids like getting up to go to their friend's house. I like having those days to really focus on work uninterupted. I am able to focus on their education on my schooling days. I am still going to try to keep up with our math at night. We may have some school to do on Saturday which will be new to us but I think it will work out in the long run.
