Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Psalm 126:5-6

Just Rambling

I finally did it. Did what you ask? I got this year's curriculum ordered. I know it shouldn't be such an ordeal but every year I dread it. Once I get it done I am so relieved and ready to start the new year. This year I will officially be schooling 5 children, 1st through 8th grade. Amazing how the more children I school the easier it gets. Next year I will officially have a child in high school. Where has time gone I will never forget her first year using Bob Jones and wondering what have I gotten myself into. Now I couldn't think of doing it any other way. Kind of exciting to think that my children have been with me since day one and I have enjoyed it. Kind of funny in today's society to hear a parent say they love having their children under their feet all day everyday. The Lord really can do change the heart of his people. When I was pregnant with my 3rd child I wanted to get a nanny and go back to school full time. Now look at me pregnant with number 8, homeschooling 5 children and open to the Lord blessing us as he sees fit. Thank you Lord for opening my eyes to your wonderful gifts. Have a great school year everyone.

I just ordered my curriculum last week. I still have my math to oreder though, I guess I better get with it!

Isn't neat how God changes us along the way? I wanted 2 children and a career! After having my first baby I could not handle puting him in the care of someone else!

Thanks for your prayers, they are so much appreciated!

I was a schoolteacher before having kids and couldn't wait to go back after my first child was born. God had other plans, though:). I can't imagine my life any other way and God fulfilled my desire to teach a classroom by opening the door to teach Chemistry in our co-op (and other science classes for the last five years).
Have a great week, Susan=)!
