A New, Previously Attempted (but failed), Experiment
We have decided to to try our hand at homeschooling again- with Sam only. He is entering seventh grade and, pretty much everyone I know had horrible seventh grade experiences. We are not trying to shelter him. In fact, I hope that by homeschooling we will be able to expose him to experiences that will open his eyes to this hurting world. I hope we will be able to inspire him to think outside of his sweet little middle school self and that he will recognize his need and the world's need for Jesus.
I am excited and scared and cautiously optimistic. My prayer journal is filled with words like, "Lord, have mercy." "Lord, give me wisdom." "Lord, have patience."
2012 has been filled with a lot of changes for our family. For a while now, Jeff and I have felt strongly there would be more changes. I can not write about them yet (just to torture you), but I can assure you that I am not pregnant and we are all healthy (except for Jeff who recently dislocated his shoulder and is seeing an orthopedist soon.)
