Happy NOT back to school day!

Today was an awesome day.

We got up early. Not because we had to, but because we wanted to.

The girls did lots of bike riding. They're practically obsessed with riding - horse riding as a first choice, but when there are no horses around the bikes will do just fine, thank you.

We visited the library.

We spent time in our garden, soaking in the warmth of the sun.

We read.

We studied. A little ;)

We followed our own interests. 

Oh, and there was plenty of fun thrown in for good measure!

Yes, it was a great day. And the best part is that we can do it all again tomorrow. Lord, I am so grateful that you opened our hearts to homeschooling. I am so grateful that you have given me the privilege of being with our children all day, every day. And I am so thankful to be able to learn and grow right alongside them.

What beautiful photos. Sounds like you had a fantastic not-back-to-school day. We did too. You are so right: We have so much to be thank you for!
