"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

100th Day of School

We made it!! 100 days of school for a home schooler who only does school 3 days a week is quite the feat! We counted to 100 We counted 100 candies, 100 of Austin's favorite characters, 100 pennies, 100 m&m's, 100 hundred paper clips etc. on our journey of 100 days. We counted by 10's, 5's and 2's A LOT and guess what? He knows how to count to 100!! ;) It was fun and more than anything this year I gained SO much appreciation for all those kinder teachers out there! Teaching a kid to read is hard and this age takes so much patience and endurance!

'THE' chart! It worked like a charm! He loved counting the days.

We celebrated the day by going to the Houston's Children's Museum for the day. Both A's had a blast!

Daddy met us for lunch to celebrate, too!

Overall, our first year of home schooling was a success! We all learned a ton! Harder to teach your own children than you would think, but such a JOY to be able to pour into my children's hearts each and every day. Excited about having a 1st grader and kindergartner in my 'classroom' next fall! ;)
