Multitudes on Mondays

Today we will be kicking off our 2011-12 school year. I will be teaching a 4th grader, a 3rd grader, and a 1st grader. I am praying and asking the Lord to order my steps this year, to help me live Scripture out loud in front of my children, and for our entire family to grow closer to Him. I want to relax, slow down, focus, give thanks, and experience JOY like never before.

I am continuing to list and count the gifts of grace God gives, and here is my list of thanks - my offering to Him.

355) Husband home

356) Books that encourage and challenge.

357) Lower humidity

358) Candle that smells like pancakes

359) Husband who goes to Sonic to get me a drink because I just mentioned at 7pm how much I wish it was happy hour.

360) Family together at lunch time.

361) Little girl - my workout buddy

362) Praying husband

363) Learning to shift gears when plans change

Happy first homeschool day of the year! Ours is today too. I've got a 7th grader, a 3rd grader, and a preschooler, so I know we both have our hands full today! Found you over at Ann's place. Have a blessed day, new friend.

Enjoy your new school year. We homeschooled for 14 years and I would do it all over again!
