Homeschooling Monday: Pajama Style

Yaaaawwwwn! Well, it's Monday and it was quite a weekend.  This past week, the girls started up with homeschool classes at Homeschool Connections in Farmington Hills and I think they caught a cold bug, ugh.  While I was in the nursery area with Bethany (3) there was a little guy in there that loved to touch everyone.  He even sneezed in Bethany's face, whoot!  Oh well, it happens and kids and germs do go hand in hand, thanks Lysol! LOL

Well in just a few days little Bethany also decides to sneeze on her sisters and it just went downhill from there.  Colds already, really?  All weekend they were miserable and today they are recovering in their pajamas on the floor in front of the TV.  Yeah, need to get them better ASAP we have a crazy full swing schedule ahead of us on top of homeschooling:

Tuesday evenings: Pioneer Girls
Wednesdays: Homeschool Connections classes and piano lessons
Thursdays: Gymnastics (Kelly)
Fridays: Dance (Lyssa and Bethany, ballet and tap)

We also have a church event this Friday evening and a wedding to attend on Saturday.  Praying and believing we all stay healthy.  Our homeschool lesson for today is: WASH YOUR HANDS and HIDE YOUR COUGHS and SNEEZES, always! Phewww!

Looking forward to returning to our normal homeschool schedule with happy and healthy girls!  Happy Monday everyone and stay healthy.  (Lots of Vitamin C and fluids.........)


Blessed to be a wife and mom!

Training Them Up

Now that we have finished up our second week of homeschooling for 2012, my gears have been spinning.  Why?  Well, now that I have an idea of what I am doing this year versus last year I would like to incorporate character training into the mix.

Homeschooling in itself is a challenge, this I have learned quite well, but it's also extra time to really train my children up in the way they should go. (Proverbs 22:6 Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.)

This verse has been ringing in my head and heart since beginning our homeschooling journey and I want to be obedient.  After all, they are only little once and we only get once chance as parents.  This really is a big deal.

In the mornings I make it a point to start our day off in prayer as this should be a no brainer as Christians right?  Yeah, I can honestly say that I have let a couple mornings accidentally slip due to adjustment periods. I know God knows my heart and that I am trying though.  I am sure you can relate.  I have been teaching the girls how to pray and hope to take turns with them in the days ahead.  We also include Bible reading and scripture memorization.  Kelly takes turns reading with me then we discuss it.  God is so awesome and I love that we have this opportunity. 

I want this to be routine and top priority in starting our day.  I also try to make it a point to pray for others.  I will be starting a prayer request chart for the girls to be able to write their requests down.  I have not made Bible a subject in our homeschooling curriculum.  I want it to be a natural thing that we do as unto the Lord, not because we want a good grade.  So I eliminated it from our subject line up.

Thank you Lord for this opportunity to train my children (your children) in the way they should go.  I know that I will be held accountable for everything I teach them.  Lead and guide me through your Word to be your loyal servant.  I want to please you Lord.

Many Blessings,
