Our first day of homeschooling went great! I was very tired because the night before Mia got sprayed by a skunk, and we ended going to bed at midnight after giving her a shower with some chemicals.
The children say they are enjoying it, and even though it is a big change to my routine, I am enjoying it, too. I know that this is definitely the LORD guiding our path as a family because I never got bored or anxious about being with them the whole day. The first two weeks of summer vacation were rough as I basically realized I had them for realzzz. However, as time is passing, I am actually grateful that I am with them all the time that I have available, and so being able to disciple them in the ways of the LORD.
Libby cried the second day because she think she knows it all (I don’t know where she gets that from). Math is easy for her, but when she realizes she can’t figure something out right away she gets frustrated. Trying to help her only gets matters worse. I am super pumped about History and Apologetics. We don’t really do Apologetics formally, but we do talk about everything from a Christian worldview, and we listen to tons of podcasts in the car. Lately we are learning about transgenderism, and homosexuality, and what the Bible has to say about that.
Here’s a good video on stuff relevant to the Southern Baptist Convention, and teachings on homosexuality that are being taught lately. I wish I had the time to write more regarding that, but I don’t. So if any of this is of interest to you, you go ahead and listen to it 🙂
I don’t have a lot of photos from the first day. And I have uneasy feelings thinking we are not doing enough, but I am trusting that God did guide me when we selected the curriculum. My faith is not in the curriculum per se, either. I love being with them, and them being silly with me most of the time. My daughter did say that it seems we are not doing enough, but what we are doing instead of going wide goes deep – whatever that is. It’s only been three days, we’ll see… She did complain that her Science teacher is not doing his job (that would be Emerson), so she’s going to talk to the principal (who is also Emerson LOL!).
Let’s hope for a great second week 🙂
