The Next Step

I just took the next step in our parenting… buying “official” curriculum for Gabriel’s next step in homeschooling! It will be on its way soon!

What a sense of accomplishment, and a huge sense of wow-what-a-responsibility, to have clicked “purchase” at both VeritasPress and RainbowResource. I’m really looking forward to digging my nails into these books, and seeing how we like each thing once they arrive. Hopefully, as time goes on, I will be able to share some of our thoughts and experiences with the various curriculum, activities, projects, etc. for your benefit as well as my own.

It’s such a wonderful blessing to have others come alongside us to encourage and exhort us, especially those who are just one or two steps ahead of us. We don’t, in all honesty, have very many people nearby us who fit that bill, so it makes me especially thankful for the gift of online community, where we have access to others no matter the physical distance between us.

Thanks be to God for His incredible gifts! Not the least of which are education, the freedom to homeschool, children to educate, grace to cover a multitude of sins, and books to bury our noses in.

  1. I know how you feel! I just started teaching E this week and the weight of responsibility has been huge for me. I’ll keep you in my prayers as you begin this wonderful chapter in Gabriel’s life and your parenthood.

  2. I will be looking forward to what you think of different curriculum. I was raised on Rod and Staff, but don’t think I will be using the same for my own future children. So even though kids are not in the picture yet, I’m already starting to research homeschooling options! Its definitely a huge responsibility. Praying for you as you seek to teach your little ones with the wisdom the Lord has given you.
