"The curriculum is so much necessary raw material,
but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child."
This week, I am hugely thankful that our curriculum order arrived from Rainbow Resource. Last week it was held due to one item on backorder. Well, that one item did not arrive, but the rest of it did. So, next week I will be focusing on planning out our year and, hopefully, the week after that (September 24) we will have our first official day! I guess that is a big plus for homeschooling - no need to stress that our supplies did not arrive on time, because we can just figure it out on our own timeline.
By the way, SC's favorite thing to come out of the box was ... the air packs and brown paper that kept everything from moving around during shipping. Yay for simple pleasures.
