I have just completed week 5 of Bigger Hearts. I can honestly say that there has not been an activity or a day that I have not enjoyed. That is saying a lot for me because I normally run far and fast from crafts/activities. I cannot believe that I am actually looking forward to the activity that we do each day.
I make myself not look ahead to the next week until Thurs. or Fri. of the current week because it gives me something to look forward to! I love reading through the upcoming week's plans because it is so fun to see what is coming next and to imagine how much fun my kids are going to have.
My kids are thriving with HOD. They really look forward to each day and they don't want to know ahead of time what the craft/experiment/activity will be, so they can be surprised each day. They all say this is the best school year yet.
My sister, Sniz-Teach, is also loving HOD this year. I bring this up because it is really amazing to me that she and I can both enjoy the same curriculum. For those of you who know about Mary's Betty/Olive stuff, well, I am totally Olive and my sis is totally Betty! That HOD can fit both of us so perfectly is nothing short of a miracle! As has been said before, God's blessing and guidance are so evident in Carrie's writing of this guide. And that I can have this teacher's guide available to me for hardly any cost is just crazy! I feel so blessed and thankful!
So I want to encourage people of all types to take a look at HOD. It really can work for anyone, not just one teacher/personality type.
I hope you had a great vacation, Carrie! You surely deserved it!
