Dear Friends,

How is your summer going? I know that our summer is going fast. Before you know it, September will be rolling around, with cooler weather, and the beginning of the school year. I know as homeschoolers we do not hold to the Thursday before Labor Day or the Tuesday after Labor Day, the official start of the public school year. Those days are long gone, more years than I really care to remember. However, it is just around the corner, especially for those of us who "start" school in August. For homeschoolers, and I know they do not want to admit it, but public school parents as well, we are always teaching our children, so there is no real start or end of school.

Are you ready for school? No? Do you have everything laid out already, all the way through May or June? On the other hand, do you take the more eclectic approach? No matter how far you have planned or whatever your teaching style is, do not forget to enjoy the rest of the summer. Whether it is traveling around the country or in your own backyard, take time to smell the roses or the pine trees or the ocean air. Take advantage of the great natural or historic places of New Jersey, from High Point to Cape May, from the mountains to the seashore. Speaking of the seashore, I will miss that this year, being able to watch the sunset over Barnegat Bay, smelling the salty air from the front porch of my parent's summer home. The repairs to the house from Superstorm Sandy will not be complete until after the season has ended. It is hard to believe that it is nine months since the storm hit. Let us continue to pray for all those who are still suffering because of the storm. From the devastated towns like Mantoloking or Ortley Beach along the ocean to the towns like Union Beach and Keansburg in the Bayshore Area of Central Jersey.

During the nine months, ENOCH was able to assist homeschool families that were devastated from the storm with books donated to us. How about you? Why not spend a day or more helping people who maybe struggling. Not everyone can help the victims of Superstorm Sandy, but maybe your family can help that neighbor who cannot do the yard work anymore or that shut-in who maybe would like a book read to them. Pray about it and see what the Lord would have you do. Be creative! We as homeschoolers know how to do that best: being creative. Drop me an email and tell me what your family thinks up and does and maybe we will put a few in the next newsletter.

Enjoy what is left of the summer,

In His Service,
Rich Millward
