the new and the old

I am so looking forward to our new school year. we will be homeschooling this year. i just about have everything that i need, or think i need. the kids are getting excited and are actually ready to start now! can you believe that? I have already started with the boys they are learning to read. They are doing super! Of course it is so easy for Josiah, I knew it would be since he has had 2 years of pre k, but i have been pleasantly surprised at how quickly Isaiah is picking it up. I have to admit, teaching the boys to read was the most intimidating part for me, when considering homeschooling. if it all goes this well then we are in for a great year! I'll keep you posted on my journey!

This is the book I am using to teach the boys. It makes it easy for them and for me!

This will be an exciting adventure for you and yor family. Look forward to seeing your year as you go with the children. I love having my children at home learning together and spending so much time with one another. They really love each other and being together. Plus, it will all you to have more time and they each have chores they are responsible for each week. You won't have to worry about getting it all done in the evening time because you will already be finished enjoying each other!
