I do have to say I'm very very excited. We spent the last week completely organizing our home (like, fine-tooth-comb style). We got rid of 100 useless (to us) things and brought in nothing to replace them. That felt great!
I have bins of supplies, ziplocs full of stickers & binders with endless notes -- I am feeling as ready as I think I can feel when beginning a journey like this.
Homeschooling... I never thought we would do it, but here we are!
If you are in our life (or, even if you are not!), we would love your prayers for a fun & efficient year. I really do feel that this is what God wants, right now, for our family and mainly for J, so I am feeling truly expectant that the Lord will have His hand on us as we learn together & that it will be a blessing to all of us.
I was joking around with the girls from our youth group the other night that my biggest prayer is that I will be able to follow along with the Kindergarten academics! I say it mostly as a joke, but I've been boldly reminded of how much learning you really have to do when you teach. (I realized that first as a voice teacher, had it reiterated to me as a youth leader & now feel that the point will be truly driven home as this next chapter of our life begins.).
So, friends, as I said, we would love it if you would pray for us; and as we move into life as a homeschool family, I remember these precious verses:
"Delight yourself in the Lord & He will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
"Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think." Ephesians 3:20
