it arrived today
our home school curriculum.
And I never thought in a million gazillion years I would be saying that. A proper post on what the heck is making us buck the system and home school while IN America coming soon and don't worry I was as shocked as you might be. And yes, we are on African time in starting school but so is all of Chicago due to the teacher's strike so no worries right? We started today (nothing like lots of time to plan and read through everything) and it was rough. We all cried; Anni (at least 3 times), Evy (lost count) , and me (once when I finally got a shower and sobbed). I need a lot of prayer to embark on this new path in our journey.
And yeah I love this photograph (minus the ever present pile of unfolded clothes that are taking over my house) because I could not even pay Evy for the cheesy pose...she is that excited for new books. I gotta admit I took a sniff too.
Teaching and praying,
