Why Christian school is totally worth it.

Since there are only single-digit amounts of days left of school, I asked Leah the other day how she felt about school being out for the summer. I honestly didn't know how she'd respond, since she adores the place, along with her teacher and friends. Luckily, Mrs. D goes to our church, so we'll see her on Sundays (how that woman can have the enthusiasm to return Leah's hugs every blessed week is beyond me. I guess God gives us all different talents.) But of all the families from our church who go to this particular Christian school, NONE of them have kids Leah's age.

Anyway. Here's how our conversation went:

Me: Leah, how do you feel about school being done for the summer?
Leah: Weeeelll, kind of good and kind of bad.
Me: Really? Okay, tell me the good parts.
Leah: We won't have to be in such a hurry to get ready in the morning.
Me: Alright, now what are the bad parts?
Leah: Well, we won't get to learn about God as much...

There may have been more, but honestly, that is the part that sticks in my memory - my baby girl loves learning about God!

Are your kids excited about vacation? What will they miss about school? What are your end-of-school memories?

Aww! My kids attend an awesome Christian School in Willmar, Minnesota, and for us, it's the only option.

How incredibly blessed they are to spend so much time with teachers and other adults who love Jesus!

Is it a perfect environment? Of course not. Neither is any other educational option. But it's incredible to see the Christian
family environment they enter into when they leave the comfort of home.
