Burning the midnight oil
I'm there, in the chair. You can't see me there right now, but I'm there in spirit and in thought even if I'm off running to put a load of laundry in. I imagine you're there too, whether it's your dining room or kitchen table, a desk in some other corner of the house. Planning the school year...hoping to light a fire.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16)
I'm sharing with you one of my favorite tools of this school year. This planner. I've tried different methods, but my students like their plans hand written, by their mother. There is a larger teacher version of this planner, which I like as well, but I am using the student planner for each child.
