Best Sight....

We all have those moments when you see your children (Or nieces and nephews) and you feel so proud. I have to say that this set of pictures shows some of the proudest moments in my life recently. This time last year I didn't know if Big T and Sweet E would ever learn to read. Now....they LOVE TO READ! I find Big T reading anywhere he can take a book. I love it and I just had to share. :-)

Learning Experiences...

...around every corner. You never know what you and your children will learn today. For example, one day Big T found a teeny tiny toad in our yard. He became a lesson for the children through observation. This little guy was so small I don't even know how Big T spotted him. He seems to have an eye for this type of thing.

Learn to make any and every opportunity a learning experience for the family. That is the beauty of homeschooling the children. So much of the learning is never planned! I have learned (in the short time that I have been homeschooling) to take advantage of every single opportunity. I am so grateful that I have the privilege to teach my children at home! I thank the Lord every day. (Oh, and we have just completed our first week of school. I will post more about that later.)
