Oh Happy Day

Today, Evan and I had a really good day of learning.  We were both patient.  Evan tried really hard and did all of his work without complaining.  He read so well!

When we were done, he said something that I will never forget.  After he was done reading in his McGuffey reader, I told him how proud I was of him, and how hard he worked without complaining.

"Mommy, I'm so happy I have tears in my eyes."

Evan and I at the Riverwalk in San Antonio.

Those words made my heart smile.  It was a gift from God that reassured me that we are doing the right thing.  This homeschool journey IS what God willed for us, and we are so blessed!

Yay, Evan!!!

When my boys learned to read, we celebrated with a wallet, their very own library card, and a trip to Chuck E Cheese. :)
