“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)

I HEAR THE SCHOOL BELL RINGING!
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? :)
