The First Day of School

Ok first... I know I had said we would start on the 24th of August, but I had to change it yet again. Introducing, the return of the google eyes.





Now, there is a big pink spotted elephant in the room... or not in the room. Jeffrey is no longer with me. He has made bad choices that have led to him having a lack of freedom. Nuff said!

We had a great day and pre-kindergarten rocked the school room today! I will have to post his work later. The other grades did well and are adjusting to the changes.

Guess what? I am running away from home for 3-4 days. My kids are staying with their grandparents and I am going to a very luxurious hotel all by myself. First time alone in several, several years. I am going to read all the blogs I want and read a book without reading the same sentence over and over again. Hip Hip Hooray!

Dearest De,

Enjoy your time alone - as a parent of very active children I understand the need for some alone time. Wishing God's blessings on you and your family. You give so much to your children and they will value you even more when you get back.

Be blessed.

Wow, a trip for your very own! I am sooooo jealous! (I got an hour pedicure today and thought I was on my own little vacation!) I pray that whatever happened with your other student, will work out for God's glory. I don't have any idea the details, but the Father does! Thank goodness right?!!! Blessings my homeschooling friend!

I hope you had a great first day, enjoy your mini-vacation. You SO deserve it.
