As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Back to School

Back to earlier wake-ups and Morning Time and poetry and Mozart and co-op and The Vikings and The History of Medicine and narrations and new pencils and new words and afternoon tea and reading on the love seat and routine.

It's good to be back.   


  1. Back to routine. Summer is great, but I'm always glad when autumn comes, too. Your little student looks very pleased to be back in class!

  2. I have vowed to never take summer off again. Just too hard to get restarted!

  3. And what other school allows a glass of ice water on the desk...table? Your student looks happy and that's a very good thing. Have a wonderful school year!

  4. Hurray! Your year sounds fantastic!

    Great photo!


  5. You've chosen the most rewarding two careers ever: mom and teacher. You will never regret either! Such sweet times I remember every time you post about your home schooling adventures!

    God Bless!

  6. You appear to have a very happy student there!
    And a cutie too!

  7. It is good to be back. The weather is cooling and the season is one of transition.
