Back to (home) school

We started back to homeschooling yesterday.  It was pretty easy to slip back into our routine, and to tell the truth, I think the kids like their days structured, too.  Our first day went pretty smoothly we started off with kolaches from a local bakery, delish! 

Then onto our school day:

Discussion of current events
Catechism/Bible study
Daily chores

We also have two new students in the Creamer family, Doug and Ryan now are enrolled at WCJC!
Ryan is studying cosmetology (note the purple hair), and Doug is going to become an EMT/Paramedic.

Ryan is not quite sure what he wants to do yet, and I'm a firm believer that you don't have to have your whole life figured out at 19. So for now he is in cosmetology. He will have a trade skill he can use to earn income while figuring out what he wants to do in life, plus, FREE haircuts for the whole family for life!  I'm totally down with that!

 Doug says he feels "called" to become a medic, so who am I to mess with a man's calling?  He's seeing how tough it is going back to school at a late age.  He's also doing it while working a full time job and a half and tending to the needs of a large family.  Oh, how I wish he had found his "calling" 25 years ago!

So education is the name of the game this year in the Creamer household.  Big plans and big changes coming....I hope we are up for the challenge!

Pray for us!
