Preschool Homeschool

My baby boys just turned 4. FOUR! I am really amazed at how fast this is going. It makes me a lot sad!

We have made the choice at this time to home school our kids. We don't know what our future holds, but right now, this is what we have decided. That being said, I have decided to start a preschool program with them. Being a whole 4 years old, they now need more structure to our day. I have chosen a VERY simple program online that I am going to use. It's very basic in learning animals, letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and nursery rhymes. I can't figure out how to add a link from my phone, but it's from the preschool homeschool blog. They even provide images to print for your kids to color. I have also chosen a book called My ABC Bible Verses: hiding God's Word In Little Hearts. It is a book that has a bible verse for every letter. We will go through the book as we go through the alphabet.

I was pretty pleased with how today went, it being our first day. We started with prayer. Mostly me asking for patience. We then went over our verse a few times. A soft answer turns away wrath. Proverbs 15:1. Then we colored A and talked about that a little. We discussed that Averie starts with A. It was very simple and we were done in 30 minutes. They are even excited to say their verse for daddy and show him their art work when he comes home.

Please pray for us as we do this! I am excited about it today, but I know every day won't go so smoothly. I know every lesson won't end with Ty saying "thank you mama for doing school".
