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

Homeschooling Goals for the End of the Year

Grammar: Shurley English

Bible: Read through Genesis & character training from the New Testament

History: Studying the Egyptians, reading aloud.

Science: gardening and experiments in the kitchen, reading aloud.

Reading: fiction for 4th grader, reading aloud for 2nd grader

Spelling: pronunciations, vocabulary, adding -s & -ed, writing sentences using the words for the week, and a test at the end that includes sentences

Art: drawing objects, and patterns

Handwriting: letters, notes to grandparents, practice

Since this blog is like my journal, I thought I would post our goals for the end of the school year. I have a tendency of losing papers (or them getting thrown away) and forgetting things. I have a copy of this on Microsoft Word, but it is easier to just look here for it instead of printing it up every time.

Your background was looking really homey and comfy, and then it hit me why it's so familiar. I used to have that background on my page as well.

Isn't it nice? I love seeing that such a pretty background is getting used. :-)
