What's in a Name?

I'm SO not creative, so I need help from those of you that are!

For the last few weeks, I've been trying to come up with a name for our homeschool.

We could just call it "Sustala Homeschool" or "Sustala Academy," but I really want something more creative and that encompasses more about us. Like our faith, excitement for learning, etc. Something clever - maybe even a play-on-words type name.

I know creative juices are already flowing for some of you, so throw out those suggestions! Let's see what you've got!

Okay, I passed the creative buck to your brother. We'll see what he comes up with. I had 2 thoughts - the first one: The Sustala Station, which then led to the Sustala Education Station. Also, what about doing something with "J" and "E" for the kid's initials?

Love you guys,

It's one of your long lost Texas cousins here (Lisa Rainey Peacock). I've kept up with you every now and then through Rick, Beth and Mema. Your children are beautiful and you are too. I can't wait to find time to read some of your blogs...I didn't realize that you guys had moved up to Iowa. Congrats on your upcoming addition to the family! If you want to take a peek at my family you can go to:
Take care.

Jesus Exemplified Sustala Academy

That's what I came up with....give me more time, and I am sure I will think of more.


Stacey said...

Joyful Education Sustala Academy

Jesus Embodied Sustala Academy

Joyous Exprience Sustala Sibling Academy

ok...I'll keep thinking.

I'm liking the play on J.E.

Stace - I like "Joyful Education School" - with the initials matching the kids! Cute idea.
I think "Jesus Embodied" is a little much for me. You definitely win the prize for the most ideas!
Keep 'em comin' y'all!

Beth Rainey said...

I like the Joyful Education Station. It's got the initials JES and some rhyming!


Lori Eilers said...

Don't get me wrong...I love the JES suggestions but how about something like Liberty Academy? When I think of the wonderful opportunities and freedoms that come with home school, I think of the word liberty. Webster's say it's the power of choice, a right or immunity enjoyed by prescription or by grant : privilege b: permission especially to go freely within specified limits. Just an idea for thought. Liberty in Jesus. :)

OK, I have been crackin' myself up with my name idea, and then I read Pastor Lori's AMAZING idea/ observation.
Oh, what the heck, here's my idea:
"The Little & Medium Sized People's Education Station"
Can you tell that I am still crackin' up at Jake's comment to you from months ago????

angelasustala said...

Amy - now you have ME cracking up! Wouldn't you know Jake STILL holds us to that? So funny.
I think Pastor Lori might be on to something ...
You guys are too good!

Stacie said...

i love beth and lori's ideas...if you put them together, you may have something.....Liberty in J.E.S.U.S.(J.E.Sustala (something that starts with "U") School.....)???

Beth Rainey said...

Following Stacie's idea - the "u" stands for "united"!

stephanie said...

oops...i never was an ideas girl. i can encourage the good idea havers though!! everyone is doing so well!! Joyful Education Station....Liberty in J.E.S.U.S. both great ideas!
