Back to School



We did it! We officially started school. We have had one full day...from 10am to 5 pm of kindergarten, 2nd grade and 4th grade. With some preschool activities thrown in intermittently.

The kids are thrilled. Isaac giggled through his entire lesson. He said, "I love doing this work with you, Mom!"

What a gift to hear those words. The fun of new books. New lessons. New schedules.

"Lord, help us during this year of discovery. Open their young minds to all You would have for them to learn. And open my old mind to all You have for me to refine...patience, compassion and joy in Your calling for me, for now. Never let us stop learning or seeking. In Jesus I pray, Amen."

Welcome back to school, everyone!

Cheryl, thanks so much for your comments the other day on the blog. I am so glad to have you along for the ride. I am doing some revamping and housecleaning of the blog, much like we do with our lives from time-to-time.

Please let Jeff and the kids know that we think about you guys and pray for you often.

Cheryl,
You've always been one of my role models! I know you are a wonderful mom and teacher. My prayers will be with you this next school year as you juggle 4 different ages/curriculums. I don't know the homeschooling aspect of it - but I do know as a previous teacher - how much work it all is!
