Happy New Year's Day.
I love New Year's Day and always have. I love the idea of everything starting new with a clean slate. This year, I am taking that to heart with my homeschool. It is the beginning of a new year and a new semester.
This year, I am not making resolutions...oh I could...all those oldie but goodes (especially be more organized) but I'm not. This year, I am using purposeful words to guide my homeschool efforts. What does this mean? Check out this article: www.simplehomeschool.net/new-years-resolutions-choosing-purposeful-words-for-your-family-in-2011/
(and if you are making resolutions this year, check out the great guest post over at www.wonderland-kitchen.blogspot.com by Nancy Jacobs from www.howtohomemaker.com.
Here are the purposeful words I have chosen this year to guide my homeschool (in no particular order):
And here are the purposeful words I have chosen for my homeschoolers:
Make 2011 the best year in your homeschool yet. Don't try to do it all, but do what you can to the best of your ability with the talents God has given you. As a friend told me this week, "to take on more than the "all" you are already doing, is just crazy". But, for me, to do any of it with out some kind of a plan is crazier still.
So whether you are choosing purposeful words this year, or making resolutions and goals, I wish you the very best homeschool year. What are the purposeful words/goals you have set for your homeschool this year? Leave a comment and share them!
