“We have placed in our care for a few short years precious immortal souls who belong to God, whose destiny is an eternity in and with God, and who depend entirely upon us for the formation of a way of life which will lead them surely to God. And woe to us if we fail in this charge.”We and Our Children by Mary Reed Newland*
As a new homeschooling year begins, I am pondering this quote. I am looking forward to falling into a flexible routine once again. I am hoping that doing so will help my younger children who have been testing the waters lately. I know that I need to teach them to "swim" not just for my sanity, but for their well being.
