Productive Day

Today was a very productive day.  When we bought our house, we opted to not have the landscaping done by the builder.  That choice resulted in a large reduction in asking price.  Our thought process was that we could just do it ourselves.  Of course, once we moved in all we could think was that we had bitten off way more than we could chew.

Thankfully, we have people nearby to give us advice and offer suggestions.  Listening to what everyone said gave us hope in our abilities.

We decided that we would just tackle the landscaping in sections.  Our first section was a small portion of the front yard.

School’s Out for Summer!

We’ve just completed another fabulous homeschooling year. I now have an 8th grader and a 6th grader on my hands. I’m so proud of these two!

Benjamin – 8th grader / Yeva – 6th grader

People sometimes ask me if it is hard to homeschool kids who have special needs.  My answer to anyone out there wondering is that it is no more difficult than homeschooling any other kid.  You plan, you prepare, you create lessons that work, and you deal with each day as it comes.

Benjamin and Yeva have both done very well.  Each year we seem to have new struggles because as children grow the challenges change, but we make it through just fine.

The Lord sees to it that we have just what we need right when we need it.
