Prayer Quote

“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)

Yes I do!  
We are starting school on August 15th!  Everybody is excited and everybody is concerned.  I have had 2 girls ask if we can delay MATH. :) 
I am excited about GEOGRAPHY and HISTORY.  I am also excited about FINANCE.
We are going to be studying Finance with the help of Larry Burkett.   He wrote a book for kids between 11 and 14. 
I took Miss Alli to open her savings account today.  She was SO PROUD of having a savings account.  I told her, "This is the last thing we have had to accomplish to make you a FULL MINICH!"  She was beaming. :)
I am thrilled that there is a book that reaches out to our girls regarding how to save and plan for the FUTURE!

So, I think tomorrow's math will be filling in bank books. (That is a surprise because they are expecting Algebra!)  On Monday of NEXT week, Algebra resumes. :)

Another surprise is a documentary on Thomas Jefferson. I have been previewing it all week and I think they are going to REALLY like it!

2 of our girlies are "go with the flow".... The other two, which I call my "book ends" are much more stressed when it comes to change.   They are excited and reserved...... I am praying that tomorrow will go well for them.

Today, we had a fun time at a Pizza Parlor with good friends to celebrate "Back to School"....

So when are you all starting school and what subjects are you excited about? :)

How exiting! Funny, because I am just FINISHING my 9th grade year... I take off Sept. - Dec. and resume in January, although all of Sept. I will be doing a crash course on Alg. 1 to make sure I know all of it before I start Algebra 2. Have fun with schooling!!!

We stagger our starts to give each student time to adjust. This year my 9th grader is excited to study driver's education!

Wishing you all a fantastic school year!
