Day Lengths and Pics.

Hey all!

Thanks for the flexibility with the days. Since everyone has been able to experience what we do at the school with homeschooling on Fridays, this next part may not seem as crazy.

Over the last couple weeks, we have played around with doing our science/social studies in the morning... not necessitating the afternoon/lunch period. It has worked out well so far. We have one family now homeschooling during the week in conjunction with attending school one day a week.

We had all the parents sign on as homeschool teachers for their children this year for this purpose. The parent's role in a child's education is irreplaceable. I am so thankful to be in a community where so many parents are willing to take on this challenge!

That being said, I  love the opportunity to teach the children about Jesus and watch them enjoy each other's presence. Even with the shortened days, we still have plenty of time to explore freely. So I continue to dance through this life and learn, grow, and adapt. Keeps life exciting anyway. :)

So here is my current proposal.

Before  Christmas :
Mondays 8:15 to 2:00
Tuesdays 8:15 to 12:30
Wednesdays 8:15 to 2:00
Thursday 8:15 to 12:30

No lunch needed on  Tuesday or Thursday... and will pack a lunch instead for Monday and Wednesday until the end of the year.

After Christmas, all days will be from 8:15 to 12:30. We are simply using the afternoon for program practice on Monday and Wednesday during December. No lunch will be needed.

We still plan to do ice skating together some afternoons - and I would love to fill our afternoons with other mission and/or community opportunities. Maybe even find a soccer coach for the spring. :)

I would love to hear your feedback on this proposal!

Freedom to Choose.

It’s crazy, but while we live in a ‘free’ country - many of us live lives that speak otherwise. We are bound by expectations and man-made plans. We do what we do mostly because that is what we are told or expected to do... and then something like this happens where we are given the freedom of time... and choices... a blessing most of us are not sure what to do with. 
I can’t help but spend time right now reveling in the truth that we are created in God’s image... It doesn’t take much exploring of God’s creation to see that we have a very creative God. I truly believe somewhere within each one of us, whether it be building, sculpting, photography, painting, planting, music, crafts, writing, etc - we have a desire to create and explore, a sometimes very buried or hidden desire - but a desire... a yearning in our soul. 
I’m so incredibly thankful for a break from the chaos. An opportunity to slow down and connect with God. I pray with all my heart - as a culture - we are able to let go of …

Philippians 3:1-11... Into the Unknown! :).. Sing it out!

I just wanted to elaborate on the beautiful scripture we read this morning. Philippians 3:1-11
Paul talks about how there is no human effort that can bring us to God, but that it is a gift given to us because of what Christ Jesus has done for us. And that although Paul, when he was Saul, walked a near blameless life as far as the written law, Paul now counts it as nothing because of what Christ has done - the infinite value in His love for us. And then the clincher: “For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.” -Philippians 3:9. 
And this is where the Holy Spirit... the miracle of the Holy Spirit within each one of us comes to life. Faith being an intangible, untouchable, mystical element is not for us to hold onto or rationalize - the Holy Spirit acts as a bridge for our souls to connect with the mystical... and venture  “into the unknown!” :) yes, I even sang it this morning. 
The Holy Spirit, Jesus’ presence multiplied infinitely because of His death on the cross …
