God provided all the books...
The weather is too hot to play outside unless you're submersed in water....
We're going to likely miss a bit of school later this fall when we add two new lovies to our 'classroom'....
So why not? Why NOT get a little jump start on school?
Don't get me wrong...I LOVE summer. LOVE IT! And I think our children need a good break. Definitely.
And they had a solid month...we finished most of our school year at the beginning of May so we took the month off. It was NICE because May is a really busy month around here.
But our books kept arriving on the doorstep. Begging to be opened.
On one particular slow, sweltering day, Carlie was heard saying, "I don't like this feeling of being unproductive." To which CLAY replied, "I LOVE THIS FEELING!" Snicker snicker...gotta love boys!
So we started back to school, getting our feet wet, so to speak. Still sleeping in later than normal...staying in our pajamas...just throwing in some school to the lazy days of summer. And believe me, this momma would love to take a solid 3 months off....but I feel really led to get some weeks of teaching behind us.
After all, we do have some PRETTY BIG field/mission trips coming up this summer. And then a SUPER BIG FIELD TRIP hopefully by October/November!
So back to school is not so bad. Actually, I really like it! I am SO THANKFUL for school, whether it's in the summer, fall, winter, or spring(well, to be honest, it's hard to be thankful for school in beautiful spring time weather when you just want to go play all the time! :)
And lest you think I flutter around like sweet Miss Pattycake (who I love, and I miss you Miss Pattycake...when are you coming back this way?) while I teach my obedient adorable children....do not be misguided. It's not so pretty everyday around here, I'm sure you can imagine. Just wanted to clear that up! :)
