Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

Where Am I???

As homeschooling winds down, I speed up...

I am anxious to finish up this school year! My oldest son only has 4 more lessons in Saxon Math 54 to complete. He will finish up on Thursday. Once we are finished with math, I will work with him and my other school age children on Grammar, Bible, History, Science, Reading, Spelling, and Art.

This "new" schedule will begin Friday.

Bible and History will be read aloud. I will probably have them still do some Handwriting, but not to the extent that they have been doing it. We are going to the fun stuff. We have a garden to plan and plant, and we will be planting all the flower beds. I have 8 flower beds...3 smaller beds and 5 larger flower beds.

We will be studying the Egyptians in History, and continuing to read through Genesis for Bible...I will throw in some character training from the New Testament, as well. Reading will be leisurely reading for my oldest son, and reading aloud to mom for my youngest son. Spelling will include pronunciations, vocabulary, adding -s & -ed, writing sentences using the words for the week, and a test at the end that includes sentences. We will be working through Shurley English for Grammar, and Science will include gardening and experiments in the kitchen. Art will be once or twice a week and it will focus on drawing objects, and patterns.

Our school year is scheduled to end on May 30. We will take 2 weeks off and the start all over again (or pick up where we left off). With the baby due at the beginning of September, I must prepare for interruptions so we will be schooling throughout the summer with intermittent breaks.

So if it seems that I have deserted you, my friends, just be patient. Everything will settle down soon and I will be back to regular blogging!
