“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Preparing for SCHOOL!
Tomorrow, I will begin to prepare for "School days School Days, Good Ole' golden rule days, Reading and Writing and Rithmatic!"
We have less than a month before school starts.
Anna has announced she needs a new wardrobe.
Sarah has asked to volunteer at the library.
Alli is excited for what we are going to study.
Erika is ready to work hard to get ahead!
This year, we will start a new Geography and History Program. I am really excited to get it going.
We will continue with Apologia Science, and Algebra 1/2 for 3 of the girls. Alli will be doing 7th grade math.
We are planning to try a sports team with a different home school association. I need to make those calls this week to make sure Anna and Alli can get in.
We will continue Friday Soccer for all of the girls.
It has been a really good summer. I'm glad we took the time off. It is the longest summer we have EVER taken! But it was necessary. I needed to really have a break, and Mike has needed me to do extra things in the shoppe with him. I am hoping to continue to help him... but I'll have to be SUPER organized! (not my forte')
So the countdown begins! We start school August 15th! :)
I am starting to get excited to get back on a REAL schedule! I am also excited that our chickens will start to lay eggs soon! I can't wait to STOP buying eggs once again, and get REAL eggs!
Love how the girls have handled summer. We are jelling.... :)
