First month of homeschool

We just finished up our first month of homeschool! We started August first and had a great first month. I really could not have asked for it to have gone any better. Kathryn is really enjoying the curriculum and so am I. I really love the fact that every subject we do, God is at the very center. It is so refreshing to open up her text books and scripture be all throughout every subject. Kathryn. Is doing so well! Her grades have been excellent! She has yet to make below an A on anything and she is so proud of herself. As she should be! As our second month started yesterday, she is right on track and has moved into her second set of books, completing her first set with flying colors! I have so enjoyed watching her be excited about school and to be the one that gets to see that "light bulb" come on when she understands something new! I am so thankful and blessed for this opportunity to be the active teacher(for school) in my child's life! I know as parents we are teachers in all we say and do, and I love that! But this new role...I love!

Well, tomorrow is a sad day for me. Our next door neighbors are moving to Texas. There goes mine and Kathryn's buddies! She is a single mom and has a daughter a year younger than Kathryn. She is in the Army and so she must go where they send her. She has been a much needed friend in my life and I am going to miss her soooooo much!
