A Few Things I Love About Not Going Back to School...

A Few Things I Love About Not Going Back to School:

1.  Missing the bus
2.  Missing the socialization
3.  Christ in the "classroom"
4.  The world is our classroom.
5.  Really knowing my children.
6.  My children love to read.
7.  Writing comes naturally to kids who love to read.
8.  Education happens outside typical subjects
9.  Lots and lots of choices... and we make them.
10.  Finding products that make learning fun- even Latin!

and my personal Autumn and Winter favorite-
Cuddling up on the sofa with cocoa, slippers, and a good read-aloud.

Whether your children are going back to school or not, trust in the Lord and pray.  He is able to protect the children whom you have entrusted to Him. 

"There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."

Please don't think that you're not a good parent if you don't homeschool.  Homeschool parents have to depend just as heavily on God as parents who choose other educational avenues for their children.  Love God, love your children, and teach them His ways.

My little sermon for today~

God bless you all,


  1. Yes, we all need to give it all to the Lord each and every day. Without Him, I would definitely fail.

    I really enjoyed your list. :)

  2. What a great list! I do love those cozy read alouds!

    I hope your school year is abundantly blessed!


  3. Love your list! Stopping by from the Blog Hop!

  4. Great sermon, Laura! :-D I loved your list. Thanks for sharing this bit of encouragement on my link-up this week!

  5. (not sure if this is a double post...I thought for sure I typed this already)

    Great sermon, Laura! I love your list. Thanks for linking this bit of encouragement up on my link-up!

  6. Well said. Like my nephew would say, when he was very young, "life is school.". My active homeschooling days are mostly behind me now, as my youngest just started community college in high school, but I always tell all the warn out parents around November, "mornings are a lot easier when you don't have to get your kids up to go to school.". Thanks so much for sharing your perspective today. I enjoyed reading.

  7. Love your list and agree whole heartedly! Angels to you and happy healthy school year.


Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
