First School Day 2010

I thought that this was as good a time as any, to start blogging. First day of school for 2010!
As I sat down this morning, and the girls were working independantly, I was overcome with gratitude to God that He has allowed me to be here with my kids each day, homeschooling them for the last ?????about 18 years. I was thanking Him also for my husband Ken and the way he works hard to provide for our family, so that I can stay at home with our kids. (Thanks Honey).

I'm down to my last two students, Emily (14) and Jordan (13 ,next week). We have a busy school year (as usual) and I'm excited because for the next two years we are covering World History. I don't remember alot of history from when I was at school, so I thank God for second chances in life.
Subjects we'll be covering include Bible, History, Math, English, Science, Spanish, Art, Typing, Literature and Piano. Curriculum we are using this year include Sonlight, Mathusee, LLATL, ACE, Apologia, and Rosetta Stone.

I don't know how well I'll be keeping up with my two busy blogging daughters (though one has slowed down whilst sailing The Carribean). It'll be a hard act to follow!


  1. What are you using for world history? I'm about to begin that with Carrie and have just finished it with Anna. I used Beautiful Feet for Anna, but am going to use TruthQuest with Carrie.

    So are you using all Sonlight or just bits???? Inquiring minds want to know! ;)

  2. Yay Kayleen - it is so good to have you in the blogging world! I'm sure your blog will be an inspiration and an encouragement for so many of us. It will also be a huge laugh going on that picture of you and Ken riding a (dinosaur, giant red goat??!!) over the Swiss Alps.

  3. mum!! you have a blog!? nobody tells me anything!
    im so glad. it looks great.
    at this rate, i'll never have to phone home, i can just read everyone's blog.
    helen, i'm going to add red bearded dragon to the potential list of 'what is this thing?'
    love you mum xx
