Today is Michaelmas and the day we start using Oak Meadow curriculum. I was excited to use Michael's and St. George's slaying of the dragon as a way to help my sons recognize their challenges in the academic realm and to prepare to take those challenges on using Oak Meadow as a new way of learning.
Well you know: The best laid schemes of mice an' men, often go awry. Instead of getting off to a wonderful start, we have a sick, nine-year-old boy camped out on the couch looking pale and worn out. Our Michaelmas is delayed. In the meantime, I will enjoy the quiet time to be introspective seeking out my dragons and come renewed to begin our new start in the morning.
Here are a couple of posts from Michaelmas of years past:
The Armor of God Slays the Dragon Within
Michaelmas: A Time For Bravery and Growth
