School has started very well this year. I feel a little more settled with it. I finally realized they are doing enough, even if my enough isn't every day!! Kids learn no matter what environment they are in. We had a small hiccup with Averys math. We started with Switched On schOOlHouse, hated it after just two days, and found Rod and Staff instead! She was using them for grammar already and when the hs bookstore didn't have the math I was looking for I decided to give them a try. I found a gigantic blessing in that unanswered prayer!! I am loving R and S more and more, they are no nonsense cut and dry facts only, and we love it!!
So now I just sit back and let the school year unfold, and roll with the punches. Because I have finally figured out it's not about me or them at all...its about Him, and he never fails :)

Tomorrow marks the start of the new school year. We are still waiting on Averys math and the teachers book for ETC for Keegan. I have been praying over our school year that our enthusiasm is maintained throughout the year and our hearts and minds are open. I am really excited about the Apologia science we will be doing this year. I was considering getting myself a notebook to do it along with the kids!!
