Our Last Day!

Today in the Squires household marked the final day of a great first year of homeschooling!  Bringing something so big to completion is always super exciting and rewarding; yet the kids and I have enjoyed our schooling so much that we all seem to have some mixed feelings about it being over for the year.  The last day of school was always a little bittersweet for me when I was a student because I loved school so much, and I guess I’m finding out that the same is true for me even now as the teacher.

As we’ve been finishing up several different books over the past few weeks, Abel and Amariah have already been making plans for reading them again.  I must say, going back through such great books won’t bother me any.  I tell you, I never knew children’s books could be so lovable and so educational!  In fact, one of the best parts of our homeschooling journey so far has been the fact that I’m not only the teacher–I’m a student, too!  I have learned and re-learned so much!  Learning alongside my children even as I teach them has re-ignited in me my love of books and learning, and I am so excited to be on this learning journey with them!

Indeed, Summer Break is just beginning; but this 28-year old Mommy-Teacher-Student is already asking…

Is it time for Kindergarten yet?… :-)
