As some of you know we have been trying to come up with a name for our homeschool. Our state does not require this it is personal wish of ours. Since we have been homeschooling for 6 years and are about to embark on our 7th year we felt it would be nice to have an 'official' name. I think it will be fun to have an answer when people ask our children, "What school do you attend?" Instead of our usual answer, "We homeschool" we will be able to give a specific name. I don't think it's a bad thing to answer simply "we homeschool", (we've been doing it for the past 6 years, after all), I simply love the idea of a name. Okay, I'm sure you get the point. Lol.
For those of you who know me well it's no surprise that I want to select a meaningful name. Each one of our children have been named very carefully - both first & middle name. Even our email addresses have special meaning to them! Lol! Yep, that's my handiwork! *wink*
Earlier this week I asked some close friends their opinions on some names I came up with. I'd like to hear your opinions if you are so inclined. Please either email me privately, (family & friends - my email address is not public, please keep it private, thanks) or leave a comment here as to your favorites. I have trimmed the original list down to the most liked thus far. This is including the votes of our family.
(All these will be followed by 'Christian Academy' or 'Academy')
