This blog is all about life... mainly our home school life. I think the music group Revive sums 'life' up the best - "It happens in a blink, it happens in a flash, it happens in the time it took to look back, I try to hold on tight, but there's no stopping time, what is it I've done with my life?"
Life really does happen in a flash. Before I know it, my kids will be grown and out of the house...no more time for teaching, no more time for training.
I started this blog mainly to keep a record (for myself, my husband, and my family) of what is going on in my kids lives and in their home school adventures. One day, when they are grown, I'd like to go back and reread it all...bringing back all the memories of what happened, what they did, what they learned, etc..., but most importantly, memories about what God has done in their lives.
God gives each parent the same command and promise, "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it" Proverbs 22:6. For me personally, this 'training' involves home school. I didn't start out homeschooling for this reason, but God, in His infinite wisdom, knew what I needed to be doing for my children and guided me in that direction long before I truly knew the reason for doing it.
On a side note, if any of you reading this blog have not read the book Kingdom Education, I highly recommend it. It is a great book and really helped me put things into perspective.
***Now, if you do not homeschool your children, please do not get offended with what I have posted above. This is about my life and what God has shown me that I needed to be doing. I am in no way trying to tell you what you should or should not be doing with your own children, only God can do that. He has a plan for each of our lives and His plans are not always the same for each person.***
So, with that being said - here is what we are doing...
