I am going to be busy, busy, busy today so I won't be throwing posts at you right and left, OK Karly? :)
But I wanted to say this. With all of our planning and taking control of our homeschool year, there is something we need to remember: we are not in charge.
In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.
Pray. Pray. And pray some more. Your schedule will get thrown off. Your plan might not work. We do not know what tomorrow holds--but God does. Depend on Him and commit the educating of your children to Him. It isn't really about themes and subjects and activities--it's about training our children in the way they should go. Remember that.
And also, remember what matters most.
