Getting our prospective on

Well the year is flying by. We are already almost done with July and headed into August. This has been a trying year of hardship and major joy! Life comes fast but it is how you deal with it.

This past year has been anything but boring to say the least. Having a child who wasn't following the rules and to be doing drugs was not the highest point of our family. But God truly does work in mysterious ways. After all the law enforcement arrest and going to court I truly want to believe things are going in better direction for our son and our family. For first time in a while really looking forward to having my second born home with his family. It is a nice feeling.

I at one point did not feel this way. yes sad I know. Your probably thinking how can a mom feel this way about one of her blessings. Well it is quit easy to feel this way. Having a child with mental illness can be trying. But with Gods graces we are pulling through.

We stopped schooling back in March do to my pregnancy was kinda rough for me. So we kinda did here and there schooling. Then Tobin came and nothing was in place. Meaning adjusting to a new borns needs made schooling non exitistent. But now Tobin is 3 months yay starting to become a little human being with personality. We have decided we will start school August 6,2012. We may not be 3/4 of school yr done but a 1/4 is still ahead. My girls work hard.

We are still using same books:
Bible: keys for kids
History: Story of world ( Ancient Times)
Science: Exploring Creation with Botany
Math: Saxon
language Arts: Learning Language arts through Litterature
Spelling: Spelling Workout books
Copy work: memory verses, peoms and quotes
Writing Skills:ABCs and cursive
bible work: memory verse weekly
Art apperication: garden of praise
Music Apperication: classics for kids
computer skills: they have some typing games and skill games

We will be striving to work deligently to have a successful year!
