I am pooped. Zonked. Tuckered out. Tired.
But what a great day.
I love the theme verse for our school year (Colossians 3:17,23-24).
I love our new history curriculum (Eastern Hemisphere Explorer).
I love our new World Book encyclopedia thing-y on my computer.
I love that the girls and I are memorizing Scripture together again (Psalm 91:1-2 this week).
I love that the girls want to work together on their first Choose Your Adventure project for history. (They're going to throw a luau and teach us about the Pacific Islands.)
I love that the first book we're reading out loud together is Island of the Blue Dolphins.
I love that the characters in that book have an everyday name and a secret name. Something about that totally grabs at my imagination and intrigues me.
I love that we did math without tears. Or even complaining. Not even a groan.
I love that the girls didn't fight doing handwriting exercises but were excited to do it neatly and take their time.
I love that we're learning some hardcore grammar this year. I think grammar is important!
In other news, I love my friend Jennifer who sent me this on Facebook today:
She works for a publishing company that publishes a bunch of great homeschool stuff. So if that describes you, leave a comment here and I'll get you connected.
Wanna see what she sent me not too long ago?
This book is HUGE and the pages fold out into an illustrated timeline of history. Take a look:
And I also love that the new Sprouts opened today and I don't have to drive for miles to get to one. And that nectarines were three pounds for a dollar. And that coffee was on sale for $5 a pound.
And I love that it's almost dinner time and that after eating and cleaning the kitchen and after studying some Greek vocabulary words and making my grammar flashcards, I LOVE THAT I'LL GET TO GET IN BED AND READ A WHILE AND THEN GO TO SLEEP.
Because have I mentioned that I'm a little bit tired after all that?
So, what did you love today?
