Themes and sharing about 2014- 2015

Lots of praying and thinking have been going on in preparation for next school year!  I pray I will do a much better job this coming year about updating this blog for anyone following but also for ourselves to have it to look back over :)  I must say I so do miss blogging.  Facebook has its positives and a ton of negatives.  Anyway for this coming school year we will have some themes to go along with all our other learning.  I thought I would put them up and share in case anyone is interested :)  I am excited about next year though we are very much enjoying our summer fun!
