Pics. Wookey’s. Ice Skating.

Hey all!

I have a couple items for you to consider. I was able to talk to Dala today at Wookey’s, and we are going to try something, with your permission - and you can absolutely opt out if you would prefer. This will not affect the school day as far as the current schedule, as we will be able to supply rides for all children who are interested in trying this.

In watching our culture, I continue to see a growing trend of children wanting attention... always :) and older folks wanting to provide that - and yet we separate them and put them in their respective corners... and never shall the two meet. I feel this burden has been put on my heart to at least ask a few questions and hold God’s hand while He works his magic. We are going to try to HomeSchool with a few of the residents at Wookey’s. It sounded like we should be able to come up with enough residents so there would be a 1 to 1 ratio. Bev said she would help with orchestrating. Bev and Susan both offered to help with driving. If anyone else would like to volunteer, just let me know!

So, on Monday, Feb 3 — school will start at normal time, 8:15..  at 9:00 we will leave for Wookey’s and be back by 11am at the latest... we will finish science/social studies/piano/MB and whatever else we didn’t get done when we get back. School will still dismiss at 12:30. We plan on doing devotions, math facts, cribbage, reading, writing, language arts while we are at Wookey’s.

This is obviously just a rough plan and it may or may not work out - but I feel in my heart it’s at least worth trying.... or maybe it’s just the start of something that I can’t see yet. Please feel free to contact me with your thoughts/questions/concerns... or ideas ;).

If it works to do every Monday - it will replace our Tuesday monthly visits. This is for grades 1-12. As I don’t think it will work with Kindergarten quite yet - but I may be proven wrong later.

Now, Ice Skating. The next ice skating date is Feb 4. Ice Skating starts at 12:30, so we will close the school at 12:00 that day. If you want to send a lunch with your child that day, we will make sure they get a chance to eat it before 12. Or you can grab lunch after. Your call!

Matthew 20:20 Even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and give His life as a ransom for many.

Thank-you all for continuing this journey with me. We have such an awesome creator!

And some pics...

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 …
