Another year of changes and promises to myself and the kids to do and be better.
Another year that will be filled with more accomplishments; less failures.
There are things that are in my control because I have freedom to choose the better and best things.
I know that there will be days that I’ll sit quietly and repeat this verse to my soul when I feel defeated, because I have reason to be joyful!
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God; for I shall yet praise Him,
the help of my countenance and my God.”Psalm 42:11 (NKJV)
That’s mainly the reason that I don’t write about the “act” of educating my children.
I hadn’t seen the successes academically like I’d like to.
Tricia, Hodgepodge, probably has no idea how much she’s helped me see clearly.
I’ll fight the urge to give up or be overwhelmed.

We’ll be relying heavily on Notebooking Pages this year as well. Notebooking is one of my kid’s favorite activities during study.
They pay attention more!
Here’s a special offer for you!
A Year of Chalk Pastels
…and various online and impromptu material will be used!
No doubt we’ll be doing Unit Studies and Interest-led studies.
Our days would be incomplete if I didn’t take time to first praise, honor, worship and seek God when we rise!
Things that we use to do this will be our tools for successful living God’s way!
