I’m preparing lesson plans for our third quarter today.
Seriously, we are the third quarter already?
We will be going into the era of the Civil War and the Reconstruction.
Something that thrills Kaleb, he is such a history buff.
It is giving me pause to think about our youngest. Our country has such a dark and ugly stain on it because of slavery. Truly it is a picture of what man looks like with out the savior. It’s ugly. There is however, also a wonderful pictures of men and women willing to fight for what is right. Those willing to stand up for and rescue the oppressed and bring light in the darkness. It is going to be interesting and challenging to teach them about this dark part of our history.
I am looking forward to what this semester will bring. We have a science fair coming up and Noah, Kaleb, and hopefully a friend will be working on a really “Myth Busters” experiment. We will get to learn about David Livingstone and Hudson Taylor for church history. We will be reading all sorts of great fiction for literature like Great Expectations, Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and Little House on the Prairie. Grace will be singing in a local choir. Noah will be participating in track and field with an area co-op. Kaleb will be testing so that he can begin dual credit course this fall.
We are all looking forward to a fulfilled and BUSY quarter.
I just hope I can keep my sanity through it all 😉
