This summer has been a whirlwind of activity with revival meetings at church, visiting other meetings at other churches, youth camps, kid's crusades (like Vacation Bible School, only at night) and then the regular stuff of life. Jennifer is dreading the start of school because she feels she hasn't really had a summer break with all that activity going on. Since she homeschools our children and we're adding a kindergartner to the already second grader, she sees a monumental task ahead. So, we're gonna take a little trip next week. CAN'T WAIT! Monday morning cannot get here soon enough. More details on that later.
On the subject of homeschooling, and in our defense, we are NOT that lazy, sloppy, weird, cult-like family homeschooling our children and scraping by with the bare minimum as I've seen other families do it. Our curriculum is accredited, other qualified teachers grade the important work and my wife is a stickler for following the program to the letter. Sofia reads like a pro and prints and writes cursive and is showing an aptitude for art. I'm excited about getting her into an art class. Maybe her little drawings are typical second grader fare, but I think there's aptitude there. I'd like to hear what a professional thinks.
Enough rambling for now. So glad to see all of you still here. We've known each other for a long time now and I cannot imagine MyBloggers without any one of you.
