It’s been awhile since I’ve published one of my Sunday coloring pages, but the summer’s winding down and it’s time for me to get back on a regular schedule. Since many students are heading back to school this week, I thought 2 Timothy 2:15 would provide a fitting theme:
Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
We’ve actually kept the basics (reading and math) going all summer long, but we started back to our weekly homeschool co-op last Monday, so now we’ll add back in science, history, grammar, and lots of enrichment studies such as art, sign language, logic, woodworking, etc. My kids are super-excited. They love getting new books and school supplies almost as much as I do.
My oldest daughter, Bethany, even took her younger sisters shopping for back-to-school clothes. I’m pretty sure that was the first time 7-year-old Abby had ever tried on brand new outfit in a department store dressing room. We normally purchase her entire wardrobe (save undergarments) secondhand at thrift stores or consignment sales.
If you have kids at home who’ll be heading back to school this month, you may also want to download our back-to-school prayer guide:
For children who enjoy picture books and read alouds, here’s a great list of back-to-school books for you to read together in preparation for the big day.
Or maybe the child who is starting back to school is older now and going away to college for the first time this year. If that’s the case, you may enjoy this post: To the Mother Whose Child is Leaving Home
Regardless your individual circumstances, we hope this school year will be wonderful in every way for your family!
