A New School Year

Tomorrow starts our official school year for our nesters.  We are back down to only eight scholars.  We have had a very nice summer break, and it is time to get back to the books!  Our original start date was the twenty-second, but I was seeing some signs of we moved the date!  Daughter #3 started school last Monday, and I had Daughter #7 start on Thursday.  {the nesters have been fighting a virus and D #7 was the tail end of it, so I had her start on Thursday knowing that she would not feel like schooling on Monday and Tuesday...guess what?, I was right!  She has not felt well all day!}

Home educating is a big undertaking, but when you add eight scholars in seven different grades, it can quickly become overwhelming!  The lockers have been ready for some time.  Some of our material has been revised so we had to pull the "out dated" and replace with current.  I should have taken a picture of before and after sorting the materials.  AHHHHHH!!   We pulled boxes from storage and had to sort every box!  Several trips were made up and down the steps to compare text books and readers.  Boxes were set aside for donating and friends.  

I will be glad when tomorrow arrives and I hear the hum of the Pledge of Allegiance, and the Star Spangled Banner.  We will be back to a new normal, looking forward and counting the days until the next break!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!

(pictures will follow later once the parents have a chance to brag on their own!!!)
