New school year

My second grader. Her favorite part of starting school was her new organizational cubbie for her pencils and junk. She arrived to her desk with a glimmer in her eye and a skip in her step in anticipation of the new year. She has become quite the reader and I look forward to all the fun we are going to have!
This is my fifth grader. It is difficult for me to even imagine years teaching fifth grade to a classroom full of kids is now at my doorstep. Stephanie is ready for all of the academics, she speeds through books so fast, I told her I am done buying them, we will only check them out from now on! She is still very studious and self-motivated and will craft it up on any chance she gets!
Both of these girls are growing up so quickly, and I am admonished daily to offer them more than the typical textbook. One of the highlights this year will be studying the United States and taking part in a study through the young readers books from YWAM. With confidence we are going to be adding to our regular curriculum as well as opening up new worlds of opportunities!
