Our first week of school found us at the park, TWICE!!! I haven't been to the park in years and now I'm there two times in one week!!! The weather was perfect and my heart was ripe for blessing!!
Jon met us there on Tuesday afternoon and along the way we ran into a dear friend, Evan, or Skippy as well like to call him. Jon and Skippy ran cross country for their high school a few years back and due to certain circumstances, Skippy came to live with us for a while! He's another brother to the kids and another son to Bill and I. It was a pleasant surprise to say the least!!
Thursday we went back to the park, this time was for more "serious" reasons, haha!! We have half of a day at home to school and half of a day out to school. With Jessica being in college two afternoons a week, we have some open time to get creative with.
This day we made the park our classroom and set to work!!
I am tempted to wonder why I haven't packed up school and hit the road long before now, but I wont. I understand that God has a reason and a time for everything and I'm so glad that this is our time for schooling at the park!!
It's been a busy, crazy week but I couldn't ask for anything more! We've accomplished all of our work, really taken our time and dug deeper. We're finally incorporating devo's into our school routine and the kids are filling out prayer journals.
I'm balancing homeschooling, taxi cabbing, soccer practices and youth group and though I'm really exhausted and on the verge of melting down, I'm proud of myself for making it through the week. The enemy is really trying to drag me down and that certainly doesn't make it any easier.
how I love an empty board at the end of the day!!
I'm not giving up though! Week one is here and done and we are heading full steam toward week two!! I can't wait to see what amazing things God has in store for us then!!
