Starting School: The Continuation of Learning

A local school district started classes yesterday. I've seen several posts of homeschoolers, like you, who are doing the same or will start in the next couple of weeks. Even if this is your first time homeschooling, remember that this coming year--for all its newness--is a continuation of something you've already been doing: Learning at home. Sure, it may not be formal education. Instead, think about how your children have learned to walk, tie their shoes, communicate and eat food. Many of the skills they have today were learned at home... with you as the teacher.

Think of all the new skills and lessons your students will learn in the coming year. Think of all the talents and insights they will gain. For all the challenges down the road, remember that homeschooling allows you to have a front row seat to witness these advances. What a blessing homeschooling is!

And if you think of it, I would appreciate your prayers for us at Sonlight as well. While much of what we do on a daily basis is a continuation of things we've been doing for 20 years, there's always new challenges to meet and opportunities to seize.

Thanks for being part of the Sonlight family this year!

  1. So well put. Thank you for this post. I just finished blogging about my first day of school back in 1982.
