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

ps. btw. thank you for all of your kind words.

  1. I love your bookshelf. I hope you had a wonderful new year!

  2. i love that you have a school bell.

    i love your book shelf.

    can i come over and hang out in your reading room?

  3. Your reading room looks so inviting. I love your bookshelf, too! And that quote. That quote is perfect. I think I have that book in storage. I look forward to finding it in a few weeks, so that I can mark that quote!

    Happy Saturday!

  4. Best of luck with the new school year. We begin Tuesday, just with reading introductions, looking at our books, doing placement spelling tests. Una is in pre-algebra also. We begin in earnest on the 13th. I am starting the year with a number of challenges, too. I feel unfit, unprepared and frankly, unwilling. The cooler days are starting, and I just want to stick the baby in the Ergo and get out of the house.

    I’ll get over it. I will place my hand in Christ’s and let Him lead me. Because I know that I tend to get lost otherwise.
