VHSA Impact January 2018 Dear Friends, The new year is here, and we are excited for what it will hold! The second half of the year seems to be full of opportunities, and we have a few new families joining us too! As we get back into our routine with co-op and field trips, we leave the holiday parties behind. We get down to the “nitty gritty” as we know the days to the end of the year are numbered. At our house that meant reassessing school assignments, and making a mid-semester shift in subjects that weren’t working out. How does the second half of the year look at your...

December – from the Chair

Dear Friends, Can you believe 2017 is nearly done? Reflecting on the past year makes me so thankful for all of you and the fun times we’ve shared together! In January we had our teen basketball nights, facilitated by Mindy and Josh Lively and Alan Gustafson. We also enjoyed our coffee and tea with a mentor mom. We should do that again soon! Our Family Nature Night was a success and drew the largest crowd the Nature Night folks had ever had. We had a great library database class for moms, and our book Club discussed the Best Christmas Pageant Ever. In February we had our Duck Stamp Art...

October – From the Chair

Posted by on Oct 15, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

From our Chair: My favorite thing about Autumn is how the cooler weather makes it easier for my kids to want to be indoors and working on school. Even though we are sad that the warm days are gone, there are still enough sun-shining moments for them to go out for a short recess. As we watch the leaves turn golden, then brown, and fall to the ground, we are reminded that sometimes things have to die way for us to be ready for the new life that will come. In my homeschool I realize that sometimes I cling too hard to old habits that don’t fit my kids anymore. I have to let these things...
