It is time to clear my head, get focused, and begin formal plans for the upcoming school year. I am sitting in a hotel room having spent the day at the Valley Home Educators Convention in Modesto. I enjoyed running into friends and chatting with Linda at the “Race to Read” booth. Yesterday I did a quick look through The Well-Trained Mind and came up with a general subject list for my son’s 8th grade year. Tonight I’ve done an overview of where we’ve been academically and considered my role as teacher. My computer’s almost out of juice, so I’ll journal later. Before I go to sleep, I’ll skim over my some language arts stuff and think through our science plan.
Tomorrow will be filled with lectures and ideas for the coming year. Thank you Lord for the blessing of home educating my kiddos.
