First time for everything~

Last Friday was our very first day of homeschool~ My husband has Fridays off so we decided to start the first day of school together as a family.  We got off to a late start (don't ask) so it was around 10am when we actually began. The prince-A-pal as he refers to himself started things off with a discussion of why we are doing homeschool and the benefits of it.  He talked about our freedoms in this country and how fortunate we are that we CAN do homeschool.  I think this was very clever seeing how we will be studying different cultures around the world this year in our curriculum.  He then went on to state the importance of bringing God into their education and how everything from our language to our ability to think is because of a supreme creator.  Just writing that out right now causes me to ponder on the the complexities of God and say WOW!  My husband closed us in prayer and the fun began!
For those of you who know what a Zhu Zhu pet is, you will get the compassion.
 Just like the Zhu Zhu pet we chattered and toddled along until we hit our first wall.  Then we would try to back up a little bit, straighten ourselves out but inevitably hit the wall again.  Eventually we would get ourselves turned around, just long enough to hit another wall.  This continued for the rest of the day until we decided at 4pm to call it quits. (with still more work left to do) We were all exhausted mentally.  On saturday the kids worked on a few things they still had left to do.  We plan to do a science experiment today to complete the first days lesson plan. Tomorrow we will be caught up and ready to go. 
I know this will get easier. The Lord has walked with us this far and He will continue to provide the necessary provisions to get us through every day.
Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentations 3:23
