My thoughts and other random 'stuff' is what my post is about today.
Live Like Paul
In or Out?
We enjoy kinda randomly asking questions like these to get us all thinking and really being open to what Our Lord's plan is for each soul he's blessed us with: Have you enjoyed this year of homeschooling? Have you grown and been challenged? Do you wish for any changes or do you want to keep things the same? What are you educational hopes and dreams? Would you change anything right now?
Consider these things when helping your little souls on their OWN pathway to Heaven. What is Our Lord asking of them? What may He be asking of you? Sometimes, maybe, it's to 'let go' and as the saying goes...let go and let God. Trust in Him.
And #2 got all his grades in too! He received all A's! Not just A's, but high A's. He's taking 5 classes through our homeschool groups academic classes where we have paid teachers coming to our church every Monday to spend time sharing their expertise with our children. He's taking writing, grammar, science, debate and speech and Biblical Foundations. All of his teachers have said some really wonderful things about him. DH and I couldn't be more proud of how he is doing. He is highly competitive which sure works well when you have a boy who is as active as he is...his competitive nature helps push him to work hard to try and excel in everything he does. He is also highly self motivated which means I have hardly helped him with his studies this year. I, of course, don't mind helping my kids when they need me, especially if they need me to help them edit a paper or study for a test, but when they are managing these things mostly themselves I feel like it sure is good preparation for the real world.
