First Day of Kindergarten !!!

Well today was Addison and Anthony's first day of Kindergarten!I honestly never seen the day where I would be home schooling my children!Last year I had planned that Addison needed to go to public school because I was taking Lillie to therapy 4 different days of the week!We were also going to the doctors it seemed none stop as well. That was before I started praying about what the Lord wanted me to do!My heart wanted to home school really bad but I didn't see how I would home school my kids with Lillie and all her issues she was having!So I wanted to know what the Lord wanted for our children not what I thought It looked like I should do!The lord did answer my prayer and with time Lillie's therapy went to 2 days a week and 2 therapies on each of those days!Then her occupational therapist said Lillie was only 3 or 4 months behind and didn't think regional would pay for her therapy since she was not to far behind(government funded for children with disabilities) so we are not seeing her as of now and we are still waiting for some answers!Since last year Lillie has a diagnoses and so basically It cuts doctors apts because we have a pin point of what doctors now and how often!
I cant begin to say that last year I would have said there was no way to homeschooling but as of 4-5 months ago God made It clear as to what he wanted me to do and that was my hearts desire to Home school my children as long as the lord allows me to!He made everything calm down with Lillie so I could:)Praise God !!! I have such a great feeling homeschooling is going to teach me alot and I mean a lot of things!Oh Iam teaching my children but you see God is teaching me at the very same time:)through my precious children and schooling them:)I already know which child I will be on all the time because I was the same way as a child and I can remember having more important things to do then school work lol and I already know who I can give work to and can trust that they want to and will get it done lol !!!

"therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and bind them as" a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.You shall teach them to your children,speaking of them when you sit in your house,when you walk by the way,when you lie down,and when you rise up.And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates,that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, like the days of the heavens above the earth.
Deuteronomy 11:18-21

Wow Crystal! When I first looked at the top picture (before reading below) I thought it was a classroom, and not your house. Great Job!!! Maybe you can go decorate Wendys house with some schooling decor. ;-) wink wink

So, we moved out to the Vineyard Bluffs (incase you didn't know) but I swear I found the daddy spider to your spider (in one of your posts). It was HUGE! I didn't even try to take a picture of it. My hubby smashed it and flushed it ASAP! Bailey was scared to sleep in her bed after seeing it. It was a big ole' wolf spider!! I guess thats what we get for moving by a field. But, have a good weekend! :-)
