Well , I have decided that our first day of school will be September 8th. A certain dear friend of mine once said it is a nice thing to start the school year on a Marian Feast. Since I can also make a brithday cake for the Blessed Mother for her birthday on September 8th, it seemed like a good day to start!
For some reason I got it in my head that Thomas and Hannah should come up with a name for our school this year. We've never done this before and I think coming up with a fitting patron saint or name for our homeschool will help build some homeschool spirit here in our house.
Here are some of the options we came up with:
St. Thomas Aquinas Homeschool
Holy Family School
Academy of the Guardian Angels
St. Thomas Academy
St. Anne's School
But then Thomas came up with this perfect name and I knew the decision was made:
The Wannabe Holy Family Academy
I love it! On the first day we are going to design some kind of banner with our school's name. Maybe t-shirts or caps would be fun to do. I love this title, not just because it is tongue-in -cheek funny, but also because it is a reminder that we all "wannabe" holy and it is something we will strive for together, as a family, throughout the year.
