Today is the first day of school for my kids … all four of them this year, since Luke and Lila will be doing a small preschool program at home called Little Hands to Heaven. Elijah is entering fifth grade and Kennedy’s entering fourth. Where have the years gone?
I prayerfully found that Scripture this morning and think it perfectly suits our hopes for homeschooling.
And I tried something new this year. In Germany, on the first day of school parents give their children a paper cone called a Schultuete (there should be two dots over the second ‘u’ but I have no idea how to do that in blogger), filled with candy and school supplies. I saw the idea in Wondertime magazine and I thought it would be a fun surprise for the kids. They loved the Schultueten and hope that it becomes a tradition.
We’re off to a great start and we’re looking forward to a fun year of school!
