Fall 2013

Well, our fall has started, and we are hitting the ground running.  We just finished our second week of school...for the most part our school time is running pretty smoothly.  We have been working around Tobias' nap time, so we don't have a set time when we are in the classroom, but that is one benefit of homeschooling! :) Our pastor moved to CO the middle of August, so Chris has been taking over some of his responsibilities until the church decides what they are going to do as far as a pastor.  There is a couple in the church who is taking over the youth ministry, so that is a big relief that he won't be responsible for both positions.  The older kids have started classes at the community center.  Josiah and Sophie are in gymnastic classes.  Kyrie is taking a swim class.  Josiah and Sophie will also be starting AWANAS.  I have been managing everyone's schedule plus keeping up with stuff around the house and trying to get things switched out for fall...I am just tired thinking about it and wondering how we get through our days!!! :) 

So please be in prayer as we are all adjusting to a new a schedule...that God will be our strength.  That we won't get so busy that we forget to put God first and then our family time.  I will try to update frequently...when I have some down time

First Day of School

Well, today we had our first day of school for the 2013-2014 year.  Josiah started Kindergarten,  Sophie started Preschool (K4) and Kyrie started Preschool (K2).  I can't believe how quickly these kiddos are growing.  Even though Tobias didn't start school, he is a big 11 weeks!!!  We started a tradition last year when Josiah was in Preschool...we took the kiddos at to breakfast.  We have continued the tradition this year and hope to do the same in the years to come.  We had a pretty successful day...considering that there were three kids learning and having a newborn.  I look forward to seeing how much these kiddos are going to grow this year.  I am so thankful that I am able to stay home and teach our kiddos...gotta use my degree somehow
