Our Homeschool Goals

Every spring, I spend a good amount of time drawing our school plan and the goals we want to accomplish for the coming year. I go on a much anticipated mommy retreat to be refreshed and to wait on God- to make sure that our humble ideas align with His. Those plans and retreats vary each year, but we have this set of goals that pretty much remain constant. I thought it would be neat to share them with you.

This is definitely not comprehensive, but a good account of what we want our education to look like. We have it framed so that we could always be reminded and to help us stay in track.
