Last night, my son ate two huge plates of lasagna and french bread. He ate more than me. I was so excited that I took to Twitter to celebrate. A lot of people out there don’t understand why that’s such a big deal, so I thought that I would share with you why we care so much.
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!
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.

So let me back up and tell you about what happened today. I’ll give you the short version.
