I need motivation! We are almost 6 months into the school year and I am wore out! There are days I want to just call it quits and put the boys back in school. Today as I was going through Blake's Bible lesson (Character Traits-Diligence), this is his verse:
Ecclesiastes 9:10
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do [it] with thy might; for [there is] no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.

Some days I get lost in the monotony . Then I remember that I am doing what God called me to do! The Bible tells us that whatever we do to do it with all of our might. A great reminder...and I needed it!

Austen is doing better in math! I love the fact that his teacher will not hesitate to STOP and pray for wisdom when we hit bumps in the road with Austen. She really seems to care about the small details too! God is so good, neat that he paired us with her on our journey through highschool. I struggle here too because we don't have a support network or group to do activities with. She encourages me to keep at it!

Blake is learning multiplication, geometry, fractions, and division this year. I have really slowed down to make sure he masters multiplication. I want him to enjoy it. Next year I will be doing teaching textbooks for sure. I absolutely LOVE the curriculum. I spent 6 years doing Saxon with Austen and it was very painstaking! He is now having to learn to LIKE math, because before Teaching Textbooks he hated it!

We are in a new Bible study on Wednesdays at church! It is a series on Life's Healing Choices. As I go through the 8 week study I will try and put my notes in my blog. Pastor is also in a series on Sundays called The New You. It really goes hand in hand with Wednesdays Bible study.

It was great news last week to hear God had answered our prayers about Grandma and her cancer! We serve a healing God!
