It is hard to believe her elementary years have come to a close. As I look back on these years, I am so grateful for all of the time we have spent together. Four years ago, we decided to homeschool; making the decision to take it a year at a time. I was scared to head out on this new journey alone, but I clearly see that I have never been alone. God has provided every single step of the way.
There are definitely days when I question myself. Days that are challenging and exhausting. Yet, I truly believe that some of the most rewarding things in life take hard work, perseverance, and complete surrender to God.
As parents we all must make choices for our children and no choice will ever be completely perfect. There are things we sacrifice no matter what direction we chose. Each family and each child is so unique. For us, this lifestyle decision has been such a blessing.
There are new adventures ahead as we will have a 6th grader, 3rd grader, and Kindergartner in the Fall. I feel blessed to have these days with our children, watching their hearts as well as their academics grow. We will continue to take one year at time, seeking His plan for us always. Today, I rejoice in another year of schooling together and look forward to the summer months ahead.
It is when our hearts are stirred that we become most aware of what they contain. -Andy Stanley
My first born child; my tender heart-ed, thoughtful,compassionate girl. This morning I was feeling emotional and was upstairs in the bathroom when you were looking for me. I called down and told you I was upstairs. You could hear it in my voice. You could tell something was wrong. You found me and immediately wrapped me in your arms and asked if I was okay. What a gift you are. I thank God everyday for the love and joy you bring to each of us.
