Is it back to school time already? I know some of you are homeschoolers and school year around. This year I’ll have 2 in preschool…after having several years without an official “summer” it’s weird and neat all at the same time to think of fall as the start of a new year!!!
And hello? School supplies? My favorite part of a new year is the smell of reams of paper and freshly sharpened pencils. Oh the joy of walking down the store aisles ogling over new binders and highlighters.
But what strikes me most about this time of year is that we never stop learning. When is the last time you challenged yourself mentally to learn something new? Read a book just to learn something? Even Bible study and memorization works our minds in amazing ways.
Maybe this year as we prepare our kids for back to school, we can make a commitment ourselves to learn something new. A new language? How to crochet? HTML?
Can you add a new hobby or activity in your own life? Not to stress you out, but to challenge your mind. Our mental health depends on our ability to continue to learn!! Try it!!!
