I have great intentions to do things, but many times they get pushed aside because we feel we need to get our other stuff done. We have been reading poetry, but I want them to learn more about the poetry than just read it. I have read how poetry enhances our writing skill (plus other areas) and I feel that is an important skill to have; because someday they will be required (maybe 😉) to write essays and do research papers. I lack in this area, so I am also excited to learn more too! I feel that doing art/nature journaling and hymn study brings in beauty, truth, and goodness. Also, these activities will just enhance our learning, being more aware, tying in creativity, math, science, and writing. It is what makes learning fun! One of the many reasons we choose to homeschool, to be able to turn everyday moments into learning opportunities, that also enhance our awareness of our ever present God! I look forward to our new learning year and building these habits that also nurture us, because what we spend our time on matters, what we read, music we listen to, and do matters, not only for us, but for God's kingdom.
