Yesterday was orientation at Smith Academy. What is home school orientation you might wonder? For us, orientation is all about learning the new routine: going over the schedule, learning the new theme song for the school year (This is My Father's World), learning our school "jobs," practicing the pledge to the flag and to the Bible, practicing our calendar board routines and making a poster to display our classroom rules. Here is our finished school rules poster:
After a few skits demonstrating respectful and disrespectful behavior, we concluded our orientation with a special visit from the Principal of Smith Academy. (Daddy, of course!) It was very special to me to spend time praying together as a family for the start to our school year. And now the year begins... relying on God every step of the way because I certainly cannot pull this off on my own!!
