Homeschooling Update

Many friends and family have asked how we're enjoying homeschooling and so I thought I'd post a quick update.

We are now on week 5.  Its been exciting, trying, and challenging.  We love it.  

I am so thankful that we school from home, are done by lunchtime on most days, and have the whole afternoon to play, explore, rest, visit with friends, etc.  I love spending this time with Emma.  We have so much fun and I'll be honest, she's not the only one learning here.  And I'm not talking about the curriculum (although it has been a good refresher!).  I am learning so much about myself as a woman and mother.  No one is more surprised than me that this is the course our lives have taken and I am loving my roles!  

Emma is thriving and learning so much (this week we learned about the Vikings!) and seeing her growth first-hand has been so rewarding!  Her strongest subjects right now are reading, math, and Bible.  She really enjoys science, especially the projects which we do on Thursdays, and Language Arts.  I foresee us homeschooling for years to come.  

Thanks to our families and friends for the support and encouragement!  We really appreciate it. :)
