Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win. Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one. Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified. - 1 Cor 9:24-27

First Day of School for St. Michael's Academy

We had our first day of school today.  I know that's it's Labor Day.  It worked out well with hubby home to keep an eye on the younger two.

St. Michael's Academy - before students arrived:
Pencils are sharpened.  Workboxes were prepared.  I had added cabinets this year; the fronts are painted with tinted chalkboard paint and a few with magnetic paint.

The students:
Lil' Chef - 6th grade
Mr. T - 3rd grade
Squeaker - Kindergarten

Hard at work:
Yes, they are wearing pajamas.  One of the benefits of homeschooling.  =)


  1. Wow! I give you all the credit in the world for home schooling--here's to a wonderful academic year!

  2. That's so great that you can dedicate an entire room to schooling. We do all our desk-work at the kitchen table, and our reading takes place on the couch or my bed.

  3. The room looks great :) Do you follow any specific homeschooling program?

  4. the windows make that room so bright! happy schooling!

  5. Staci,

    We use a classical curriculum, mostly Mother of Divine Grace.

    Thanks for the comments!
