Monday was our “First Day of School” and we celebrated by putting on back-to-school clothes, back packs with surprises in them and donuts with sprinkles for breakfast! Even though my kids are not stepping onto the big yellow bus this year – I wanted them to experience the excitement of the first day of school! So after some pictures – we headed to our new “school room” to begin homeschooling!
Deuteronomy 6:5-7 says “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you to day are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
Whether your children attend a public school, a private school or are home schooled, Deuteronomy 6 applies to us all – our job as moms ultimately is to teach our children to love the Lord – love the Lord with all their hearts, souls and strength! It is our job to impress this on their little hearts as they sit at home, as they are traveling to different activities, as you tuck them into bed at night and as they wake up in the morning! I want to encourage you to evaluate your time this fall and be sure that this is a top priority over all the other busy busy busy things on your to-do list!
Here’s a picture of our new home school room!
