New season...

       I was telling someone the other day how I feel like my family and I  have started a new book in our lives. The funny things is, that it happened so fast I didn't even realize we were done with the last book. (horrible analogy, but you get my drift.) So as this new season or whatever you want to call has begun I am reminded about how grateful I am that the Lord directs our steps. Who knows where we would be if I took over.;)

    My husband is a police officer and for the first time since we have been together (10 years) he is now working days. The Lord really pressed it on his heart to leave his "fun" community policing team and go back into the bid shifts ( soooo not a fun place to be, you can put down what you want to work, but may not get it.) In a way it was a step down, we lost a lot of money that we really couldn't afford to lose. BUT God really laid it on his heart and hubby knew that by switching his schedule ( I have been begging him to do it for years) He would have more time to be with the family and to also serve our church better ( he is an elder). What a great  man of God. Money isn't everything folks.

    Our schooling so far this year has been great! I am so thankful that the Lord has been by my side and has guided me with how I should schedule everything. This is the first year that I have had to really make a lesson plan and figure everything out, even the fun outings. What an honor it is to be able to teach my babies about the Lord all day long. There are still somethings I need to change, but we are getting there.  Included in our school this year, God has graciously provided a way for my kiddos to go to Co-op once a week. I am a teachers aide in the kindergarten room while my kiddos are off with other classes. They love it and so do I. My daughter is in a first grade class and they are learning about children all over the world who don't have anything. They are going to be sending photos and toys to these other kids in need. I LOVE it! Someone is reiterating what we are all ready doing at home. How great is our God! I am so excited for all that God has planned.

Here is a picture of their first day at co-op. Seriously they are the cutest kids ever!




  1. I love the beginning of the homeschool year! We've gotten off to a disjointed start, with Labor Day weekend, but I'm ready to enjoy a full week of school beginning Monday. Yes, your kids are very cute!


  2. Sounds like though changes have come, that you are being protected by His hand and guided by His Spirit.

    Your cutie-patooties are so tiny (in comparison to mine)...enjoy your homeschool year...this is our fifteenth year, I can hardly believe it. Where does the time go?
