Quick Update

Super busy at work. I worked from home yesterday, which was fantastic. wish I could do that all the time. In the morning we went and had a tour around a local Christian school. It seemed really good, I was very impressed. In a couple of weeks we are having a tour around the local public one, and from there we'll have to try and work out what we are going to do with Little e next year. Tough decision- lots of factors to weigh up..
Have stuff to blog, but as I say, super busy at work...
Have a good weekend, friends.

We've had our kids in 2 christian schools now - just moved towns. I can't compare with public as I've not had my kids in a public school, but we've loved both the schools our boys have attended. We love that the teachers share our understanding of God and his world, and teach accordingly.

In our experience christian schooling does a great job in partnering with us to raise our children as servants of God. I love that they encourage them to use their gifts to serve others. I love that they are being trained to be adults who love and serve God, and reach out to those around them with the gospel. I love that what they learn academically is in the context of being a part of the world God has made. The underlying philosophy of all that they teach is sound. I love that the teachers choose to love all the children in the class, even the ones that can be very unlovely at times.

No school is perfect, and every school is full of imperfect people. Our experience with christian schooling has been a very positive one overall.

Hi Erin,

Sorry for not replying to you at the time. thanks a lot for your comment, it's good to hear from people who've been thru this before.

"I love that what they learn academically is in the context of being a part of the world God has made."

i think that is a big attraction for me towards Christian schooling.
