Today is back to school day.

Today was back to school day
for most of our friends.
Homeschooling is good in so many ways.
But it is also hard.
It is a lot of work.
It can cause a lot of uncertainty, fear, insecurities and frustrations.
It has made me really have to search my heart.
Psalm 28:7 The LORD is my strength
and my shield;
my heart trusts in him.
Do I really trust Him?
Do I really believe He entrusted Jim and I with our kids?
1 Timothy 6:20-21
Guard what was committed to your trust,
avoiding the profane and idle babblings
and contradictions of what is falsely
called knowledge by professing it some have
strayed concerning the faith.
Ok God, I take on this mission for another year.

So to celebrate another year of homeschooling
we declared today
We are not going back to school today!
We stayed in our pajamas!
We watched Little House on the Prairie.
Actually we watched 2 episodes.

Then we ate lunch in our pajamas with today's Borrow a Kid.

Then we went to the pool and for an hour or
so we were the only ones there.
I realized once we got there that I still had on my house slippers.
How embarrassing.

Conner played with some kids he does not know.
It was fun!
Deuteronomy 6:6-9
(New King James Version)
6 “And these words which
I command you today
shall be in your heart.
7 You shall teach them diligently
to your children,
and shall talk of them when
you sit in your house,
when you walk by the way,
when you lie down,
and when you rise up.
8 You shall bind them as a
sign on your hand,
and they shall be as frontlets
between your eyes.
9 You shall write them on the doorposts
of your house and on your gates.

I LOVE this idea! Not back to school day! I think this would be fun to do with a homeschool group!
