This past summer, I decided that I was going to be a bit of a rebel and continue with our school work. It was not so well received by Hannah, but I trudged through any way. Every morning we would do our lessons and then we would get on our swim suits and go swimming or watch a movie if the weather was bad. It was kind of nice and good rhythm.
And now, it's been so nice not having to get any lessons done, but devote myself to the tasks that are at hand for the projects that are coming up. And now, with our Christmas party a memory of laughter and conversations, there is an entire season of hope, love, joy and peace awaiting us. It's quite lovely.
I've been struggling with the idea of letting Hannah just do what ever she wants. The teacher bit can be difficult to step out of, but I think it has been a good time for her as well.
I've been praying about our next year of school and looking forward to adding in some curriculum and returning to what we were doing this past summer, without the addition of CBS work for her. I'm hoping that I will be able to gather a few ladies from the church in order to create a time of study to replace that opportunity for me and I'm on the look out for a lesson for Hannah that is not necessarily book related, but more active. I'm thinking bowling might be nice :)
