Monday, Moday....

Well, today is the beginning of a new week!
Kids are very much into a routine for school. The only thing is we have been getting up later then I would like. The fibromyalgia has been rearing it's ugly head, but,....if I get my rest I do pretty well most of the day PTL!!
This week we are reading scripture about JOY and how we obtain JOY in our life. Love the verses we looked at today:

Nehemiah 8:10b
Psalm 16:11
John 15:11
John 13:17
Proverbs 15:13
Proverbs 16:20
Phil 4:4
James 1:1-3
1 Pet 3:14
We receive JOY by OBEDIENCE to God right? I encourage you to look up these great verses and share with your children this week! It was a blessing to read God's Word today together :)

I had to say goodbye to a wonderful e-mail group this week, I just have to much on my plate with the homeschool year starting. Blake is doing so well, and is reading chapter books. I really like using the 'Rod and Staff' curriculum because it is VERY Bible based :)

Austen is coming along on his school work, he really enjoys History! We have a field trip coming up at the end of this month, so both kids are really looking forward to that. Austen has been attending a writing class on Friday's with Mrs. Thompson. His writing is getting better :)

Hi Brandie! I am glad your school year is going well. We were stressed for a couple weeks but the flow is going. So much to teach and so little time to teach it! I would like to have a schedule and follow God's lead on each child's needs, but it is always a juggling act. I love it though. God is helping me destress. Keep feeling better!!
