Lots of Changes Coming....

Been a while. Lots going on here.... lots to share with all of you.  Realizing I need a place to just journal our life. If people stop by....  welcome.... if they do not....  I will still have a place to write out my thoughts and walk out our journey.

In about 26 days I will start my 26 year of home schooling.  I only have two students left. Wyatt will be 9th grade and Wesley will be 8th.  Our Alyssa (Lysa) will start college about 4.5 hours away....  close  to where her older brother live.  I am so excited for her and know this is where God has her to be..... but I am also so very sad. Lysa is our breath of fresh air. She brings sunshine where ever she goes. Lysa started kindergarten when she was almost 7. I am so thankful for that decision. She will turn 19 a week after she goes to college. She is ready. Her major will be inter-culture studies. I am so excited to see where God takes her. Lysa is 4'9 and around 100 pounds but I believe she will do BIG things for the kingdom!

This year we will continue using Heart of Dakota curricula. Last year the boys and I did Revival to Revolution. This year we will be doing Missions to Modern Marvels. I love this level. Lysa did this when she was in 9th grade and LOVED it.  This level MTMM was her favorite of all of Heart of Dakota. I am very excited to do this with Wyatt & Wesley. For Math we use Teaching Textbooks and for English we will be using Easy Grammar with several writing things.

Our kids summer program called SUMMERGIZE.  We all volunteer ..... and it is a great time! I always say the leader have more fun then the kids!

I am also excited that we still have over three weeks left of summer! How are you enjoying your summer? Have you started your school prep?

Sponsor a child.... change a life forever!

  1. Praying for you all as your family adjusts to a new normal. And I'm POSITIVE God has great plans for Lysa - I see Jesus shining through her smile in every photo you post.

    I was just thinking yesterday that I need to start planning for our school year. Maybe I should start with prayer...we wont' start back until mid to late September. Our Classical Conversations group starts back Sept 12, but then the next week my husband and I are going away for our anniversary trip, so we won't seriously start school until after that.

  2. We too have several weeks left of summer here. I will be finalizing our school decisions. I look forward to hearing from you about your mission trip, in your time! I miss talking to you this summer! Praying prayers for Lysa & you all as you adjust. Love ya!
