Wow, it's been awhile, hasn't it?

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I've just been crazy busy, with the ending of the summer & all its' glorious activities. Now, today is the official first day of the 2011-2012 homeschool year for the kids at Kenny Christian Academy. We've gone over what our goals are for the year, what our schedule will be like, what will be expected of us, etc. So far, so good, but we haven't ended the day yet! ;) In all seriousness, I have learned today that my attitude greatly affects my kids attitude toward homeschooling. If I'm all cranky & miserable it makes sense that they will be too. (Bad attitudes are contagious, aren't they?) So, my major goal for the year, in addition to teaching the kids & helping them actually retain what they're learning, is to have a good attitude every morning. If I'm cranky, I'm gonna "fake it till I make it" and lean on the Lord for understanding, wisdom and patience. Are you a homeschooler? If so, have you started teaching yet this year? What are your goals, for your kids & for yourself?
