first grade. math 6. pre-algebra. and algebra 2. oh. my.
the school bell.
it all begins here. with creation….
the reading room is de-cluttered.
the couches are comfy.
the books are as organized as books can be.
and i am feeling a bit nostalgic as we begin frog and toad again.
the year was 1998 when i started it with my oldest son.
that seems so long ago.
i guess i’ve really just been floating ever since then….
glass half-full translation: smooth sailing.
not by my own hand though.
never by my own hand.
“let not the labors which thou hast undertaken for My sake crush thee, neither let tribulations, from whatever source, cast thee down; but in every occurrence let My promise strengthen and console thee. I am sufficient to recompense thee beyond all bounds and measure. it is not long thou hast to labor here, nor shalt thou always be oppressed with sorrows. wait a little, and thou shalt see a speedy end of suffering. the hour cometh when all labor and trouble shall be no more. all is little and short: labor faithfully in My vineyard: I will be thy reward.”
~III. 47. from the Imitation of Christ
