Our little Classical Conversations group has grown this year. i added up 88 people there yesterday! Wowzers. Considering that 18 of those are in the nursery, lets hope the little people dont rise up against us old folks.
This is my third year of directing and I can say it was the least stressed beginning I have had. I think people who have been around for a while have hit their groove and it is easier to welcome the many many new people. Kids know what to expect, Mamas know what to expect and it all goes pretty well.
That to say, we had some wailers in the nursery, some very shy kids making it through presentations and some boys with enough wiggles for a can of worms. But it is typical first day stuff.
So I sit here with a very thankful heart. For the friends God has brought to me to walk on this road of homeschooling. For a beautiful program that gives us guidelines and freedom all at once. For healing from the years of homeschooling in isolation without the encouragement of other crazy mamas.
Im grateful. Here's to a great year.
