We haven't forgotten about the blog here! :-) It's been a busy summer...but a good summer! I only have a couple of minutes, but I want to share a few quick thoughts/updates.
*Effective immediately, we have a new email address:
*As I've been praying about, planning for, and talking with Daniel about our upcoming school year/schedule, we have a new plan for the blog here too. Starting soon, Daniel will be giving regular updates on the ministry here and I will continue
to write about the family. Hopefully we'll be able to do more regular updates this way.
*We are leaving tomorrow for our church family camp which runs through Saturday.
Praying for safety and a fun and blessed time together as we fellowship and listen to the preaching of the Word.

I plan on using the family room for all my one on one teaching time this coming year. Last year I began by teaching in the living room, but I couldn't see the children's desks from there and some of them need close supervision to make sure they are staying on task with their assignments :-)
I then switched to teaching right in the dining room at the kitchen table, but then my talking was distracting to those trying to work.

I've always wanted the big, blank walls in there to have something on them, so I picked up a few school decorations at the Dollar Store when we were up north, and we think it looks much cheerier! :) I'm getting excited about doing school again already!
Don't worry...the family room does not normally look that clean! :) Anybody like to iron? :)
