Today marked the start of a new school year… and our first official year of homeschooling. We will be using My Father’s World curriculum for both 1st grade and kindergarten (our preschooler will get to join in the kindergarten work). My kindergartener is 4 1/2 years old so we will be doing K twice with him.
My Father’s World is wonderful. I fell in love with how the Bible is infused throughout the entire curriculum, it’s not just a subject taught. It allows me to teach the children together, giving individual attention to their own math and phonics. One of the biggest reasons I have chosen to homeschool is that I want our children to develop deep sibling relationships with one another – I pray that learning and living together strengthens their friendships.
After a special breakfast made by Daddy (gluten free french toast), we all went on a quick photoshoot to capture their First Day of School photos.
