And through it all, I find myself feeling sad, yet excited too. Sad that I can't homeschool the boys right now. But excited for them. Jerimiah starts band this year. Anthony's teacher seems really nice and her room is fun. Plus, they are both going to schools I attended. So there's that cool feeling of nostalgia. I'm blessed to be able to take the day off from work tomorrow, so we can at least start the day with a minimum of crazy. Just one morning. :)
We are reading "Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightening Thief." The boys are really enjoying it. It's a big change from "Little House on the Prairie!" We also continue to cook new food. This summer the boys have made themselves breakfast almost every morning. They can cook eggs just about every way there is!
They are good little men, and we will continue to do school at home- and outside of the home!

We've been steadily working on reading The Little House series.
We just finished The First Four Years. I am glad we are moving on to the Percy Jackson series, but my heart is pretty sad.
We started The Little House books when we began homeschooling. And since we can't homeschool now, it was a way to keep a little piece of that going.
And now it's over.
Logically, I know we still do lots of homeschooling things. Our family is close, and we are investing in our futures. But it's not the same.
Tomorrow night starts a new chapter (a punny!) in our family education. But for tonight, I'm going to take the time to morn our loss.

We needed to fix that.
Today we studied:
“There is no one holy like the Lord ; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.

Maybe you were wondering what happened to us. Maybe not. Either way, here's what we've been up to.
We moved back to Indiana after unexpected financial disaster. We are blessed in that we had a place to go. My wonderful parents have taken us in while we get back on our feet.
We both have jobs, and the boys are back in public school. While it's not what we had wanted, it's what is necessary right now. We are scheduled to move into a new apartment June 1, and things are looking good. Ideally, we will be going back to homeschool in the fall. We will see what God has planned for us.
In the meantime, my guys are scooter-ing on their new scooters. (Thanks, Granny!) The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and He is risen!
