And through it all, I find myself feeling sad, yet excited too. Sad that I can't homeschool the boys right now. But excited for them. Jerimiah starts band this year. Anthony's teacher seems really nice and her room is fun. Plus, they are both going to schools I attended. So there's that cool feeling of nostalgia. I'm blessed to be able to take the day off from work tomorrow, so we can at least start the day with a minimum of crazy. Just one morning. :)
We are reading "Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightening Thief." The boys are really enjoying it. It's a big change from "Little House on the Prairie!" We also continue to cook new food. This summer the boys have made themselves breakfast almost every morning. They can cook eggs just about every way there is!
They are good little men, and we will continue to do school at home- and outside of the home!

We've been steadily working on reading The Little House series.
We just finished The First Four Years. I am glad we are moving on to the Percy Jackson series, but my heart is pretty sad.
We started The Little House books when we began homeschooling. And since we can't homeschool now, it was a way to keep a little piece of that going.
And now it's over.
Logically, I know we still do lots of homeschooling things. Our family is close, and we are investing in our futures. But it's not the same.
Tomorrow night starts a new chapter (a punny!) in our family education. But for tonight, I'm going to take the time to morn our loss.

We needed to fix that.
Today we studied:
“There is no one holy like the Lord ; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.
