I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4

We start school again tomorrow.  I feel much better about starting this year, since I had all summer to plan ahead, and  I am happy with all the curriculum choices I made. 

The greatest blessing I see is that Michael has our dear friend, Jeanne to teach his Algebra 2 class.  Jeanne is a retired college math professor!  I can't wait to see how Michael grows to love math with her, as I am sure he will.  I am looking forward to teaching his chemistry class.  It will have lots of labs, as I added an additional lab curriculum to the BJU class in order to make it an honors class.

The girls are going to have lots of fun this year working on science, bible,  and social studies together.  This will be our first year to really be able to do combined classes well.  I love their art curriculum and hope I have time to do some of the projects along with them.
