"IMAGINE" Our school Motto & Symbol
I asked my kids what we should name our home school. Well Rick didn't have any opinion on the matter, but Samantha immediately said "How about IMAGINE!" This was not exactly what I expected, but then I began to think about it. Why not "IMAGINE"? The word in itself demands results. So ok it's not so much as a name for our school, but the motto. And the Live Oak tree that you see here is kinda symbolic of our journey. This amazing tree started out as a tiny seed, but with the right ingredients of light, soil, and water; it began to grow and flourish. Now it's roots are strong and sure, and we are blessed by it's beauty! Our Heavenly Father has already planted the seeds of curiosity and the love of learning in each of the hearts of our children. And with his help I hope to able to nourish and encourage the seeds of those I've been entrusted. I'm constantly amazed at the intelligence my children possess and share with me. I feel blessed at the thought of being able to watch as my children grow into strong and confident adults and, more than likely, leaders of tomorrow!
I'm a wife and mother of an amazing family. [Warning: This job title requires long hours, 24/7 to be exact, and lots of grunt and dirty work. The flip side of this, is you are also required to be refined and continually educate yourself in all things; which includes the attaining and development of a wide range of talents and skills.] Don't worry, we all feel we fall short of this calling somewhere along the line. The truth is, Martha Steward's got nothing on us, Ladies. If I were asked to put a monetary value on all that it takes to be a good mother and homemaker it would be impossible. Our job is priceless. Being a mom isn't something you can come home from and not think about until the next day when the alarm goes off. NO, I live it, breath it, and love/hate it! But there's nothing and nowhere else I'd rather be. "My cup (truly) runneth over" Ps.23:5 Love, Haben
