First Day of School 2017-2018

 I love this class! Yup, we are homeschooling all three this year. And to be perfectly honest, homeschooling both scares and excites me. This morning I was up early asking the Lord to be my strength. I feel so inadequate to provide all that a school would for my kids, and yet I know this is what God has for me to do this year. So, in faith, I trust He will supply all I need to nurture the kids souls and educate their minds. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 is my verse:  But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Geneva is in pre-school! She's 3 years old and loves learning! She asked for more math pages today after completing two :) Geneva wants to be a mermaid when she grows up!! 
  Savannah is in first grade and loves pretending! She has a great imagination. She says she wants to be "a mom just like my mom" when she grows up. She even wants to marry a guy "just like daddy"! 
 Maddie is in third grade. She also wants to be a mom when she grows up. She has such a tender heart. Today she did math, reading, spelling, grammar, cursive penmanship, history, Bible, Science, and journal writing!

Right there with you: Excited and a little scared. Each new year brings new challenges, but you are right that God will provide all that we need. Praying the same prayer for strength and grace. xox
