Another School Year Gone By

I feel like the verse sums up well the boys’ first year in Christian school.

I wrote back in September about my decision to move them to Christian school, and I can’t believe the school year is already over!

They both had an aMaZiNg year!

Grew in wisdom … Caden learned to read! He could read some in kindergarten but his reading really took off this year! He also learned about the human body and hatched chickens in the classroom. Finn’s reading improved too. They dissected squids and did several book reports including one where he dressed up and gave a report on Elvis.

Grew in stature … They both grew about two inches over the course of the school year, evident by pants getting shorter and shorter as the year wore on. Also, they’re feet grew A LOT! Finn jumped into men’s sizes about midway through the year.

Favor with God … They learned so much about God this year. Part of it was hearing the Bible lessons at school and memorizing the weekly catechisms and/or Bible verses. But also we talked as a family the whole year about how God was taking care of us as a family, evident by the blessings including their new school.

Favor with man … The boys made new friends and were reunited with a few old ones.

We couldn’t have asked for a better school year. The teachers and families at their school are wonderful, and we had such a good time. Second and fifth grades will be here before we know it ….
