"In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace
that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding." Ephesians 1:7-8

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:
As you can see somewhere between the start of orientation and working on the poster, a certain boy, who will remain nameless, got "hot." One of the advantages of home schooling I suppose...  It was a bit ironic that while the boys were coloring in the letters for the word "respectful" there was a whole lot of pushing, arguing and disrespectful behavior. We're going to have to work on that!

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!!
