We're plowing through our Monday afternoon of school. Mondays are typically long days around what Audrey calls the Heim Homeschool Academy. Not sure why that is, but it is. Don't get me wrong: Longer Mondays (and Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Thursdays) mean we have three-day weekend every week. So it's totally worth it.
I'm glad that a number of books and unit studies are wrapping up this week, because after Thursday we are taking two weeks off for Christmas. I had thought we'd take only a one-week break, but we need more. So that's what we're doing.
Oh, and we'll be memorizing Galatians 5:22-23 this week--the fruit of the Spirit. Keeping in mind as we do that it is to the Father's glory that we bear MUCH fruit. Lord, an abundant harvest is what we're praying in our hearts and in our family.
My Greek final and last class for the semester is tomorrow night. So I'm not going anywhere without a stack of flashcards. Greek is a two-semester class, so at the end of January I'll be back to Tuesday nights at seminary. I love being in school--crazy love it--but I am ready for a break.
I'll be popping in throughout the week for a few quick updates that have been requested--haven't forgotten if you've emailed me!--but I'll mostly be focusing on finishing our week strong so we can head into Friday with a clean slate.
Hope your Monday's going well. (Or your Tuesday if this popped into your inbox on Tuesday morning.)
P.S. It's almost 60 degrees in Denver today. Weird, weird, weird. Where's the SNOW?!
