Schools out for SUMMER!!!!!!
These children. These children right here are ROCK STARS!!! We are officially DONE with our first year of homeschooling. I have been seeing a lot of first day of school pictures vs last day of school pictures on Facebook. It is so fun to see how much everyone has changed in 9 short months. The differences in appearance is no different for our children. Their height has changed and their hair has changed too. What you can't see is how much they have changed characteristically and spiritually. The beauty that we get to see on a daily basis is amazing. The love that they show to children who don't have a family is a beautiful sight. The love they show to the neighborhood kids is awesome. The love they show towards each other is pretty great too (don't worry, they are not perfect and its now always perfect ;) )! While they have all 3 done an amazing job academically this year and Jake and I are so proud of their accomplishments, the life lessons that they are learning together while serving here is something you cannot learn in a book. Thank you so much for praying for us. Especially with the whole change from public school to homeschool. It has been a ride for sure. We are amazed how well they did with the transition and we are so blessed that God has given us the drive and desire to work through the bumps. Happy Summer to all of our friends and family in the states!! For those of you in Door County, enjoy the outdoors as much as you can for us as well!!
