Last Day - Tomorrow Already??

It is hard for me to believe but tomorrow is my last day of school for the year.  I have had years where I was glad to close the books with the children but this year I really hate it ending.. everything has been so smooth and I love our curriculum.  I guess I know that not every year will be as easy for us, that is the reality of homeschooling and we've been through great years and really tough years..

As a family, God has really drawn our hearts closer to Him in the last 2 or 3 years, part of His plan has been our ability to use the IBLP seminars for some real biblical training and growing.  They are amazing and I am so grateful to God for bringing us in this direction!  Even more exciting in this past year has been our new homeschool curriculum through ATI - Advanced Training Institute.  I have learned so much, so have the children.  I am so excited about next year I almost wish our schedule would permit us to begin early. 

Putting God at the center of each and every area of thinking, learning and educating seems so natural and makes everything make so much more sense.. it just flows in fantastic ways! 

Through our years of homeschooling I really thought that was how I was instructing the children, yet I knew they were not making the connection.  I was not seeing or hearing them actually "get" that God is the center... of EVERYTHING.. now, I am so blessed to say that I am seeing it... I am knowing this in a deeper way.  God has given us a wonderful tool and a real blessing for our family~

Have a wonderful day and enjoy gardening if you have a chance!
