For homeschoolers summer means many different things.  Some continue their studies as usual, some do special unit studies, some take a break from formal learning and some are somewhere in between these options.  I’ve talked to some folks who are trying to finish up their year, others who are tackling household projects that they couldn’t get done during the year and yet others who are taking family vacations.

My focus this summer has been finishing up an insect unit study and completing some craft projects. I am also watching a couple extra children–which has made for some interesting times. It’s keeping me on my toes. I’ve made a schedule to help the day flow and have added the extra kids into our unit study.

Through the encouragement of friends, I’ve been meditating on Psalm 118:24

“This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

Apart from Him, I can do nothing. And I’m being reminded that my plans are not always His plans. So I need to keep my mind focused on Him.

What plans does the Lord have for your summer?
