2011 Not Back to School Blog Hop Week 1: Better Late Than Never

Not Back to School Blog Hop

It has been years since I participated in this blog hop, but since I have about 10 blog post ideas running around in my head yet am having a difficult time putting ideas to paper (or screen), I thought I'd go the easy way this weekend and back up to participate in this blog hop.  Life With My 3 Boybarians started this hop, and just this year I found out Heart of the Matter is managing it these days --that's how long it's been since I did this!

So week 1 is/ was curriculum week.  If you'd like to know what we're using this year, click on over to my 2011-12 Curriculum page to see my plans. 

I've had a laid-back, wonderful summer and am not stressing about school this year for like the first time ever.  We've been homeschooling now for 8 (official) years and I have a pretty good idea of where I want to go this year academically.  The academics isn't the hard part of homeschooling.  It is the heart.

Character. God. Faith.  Standing in line at the grocery store and resisting the urge to kick your brother for the heck of it.  These are the issues that I'm praying about for this school year. For us all.**

**Please note that I don't want to kick my brother.  I've been there, done that a million times decades and decades ago.  Not that I stood in the check out line and kicked him.
