the ahhhh of September

You may think that the ahhhh of September is the sunny days and crisp nights.  Or the changing colors of the trees.  Or the cheers heard on the soccer fields.  Or the variety of fresh apples available.  Or the scent of the fall breeze coming through the windows.  

Yes, all those things are a wonderful part of September days, however at my house the ahhhh comes from completing the first official week of our homeschool calendar.  We started a bit of schooling the week or two before to make this short week easier as we transitioned into our routine.  But the best part of the week was yesterday as I sat down with each student to look over their work.  It felt good to talk about the learning that took place.  Subject/verbs, God's creation, triple digit multiplication, states and continents, and living in a manner that pleases God.  

Yes, the kids think homeschooling is all about them getting an education, but it's really about the ahhhhhh their mom gets as she stimulates her own mind with learning as all that long forgotten information comes alive once again.  

It reminds me of reading the Bible and how you can read a passage of Scripture many times before, but suddenly a verse comes alive before your eyes.  

"For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart." ~ Hebrews 4:12

Ahhhhhhhhh!  with a few ouches, too!

Be alive on this September day that is full of ahhhhhhhhs all around!
