Where Were You?

My mind goes back to this tragic day 7 years ago. I was teaching in a little school when all this took place. My baby (21 months old) was at my mom's a couple blocks away from me and my husband was a work. I remember just wanting my family to be together at that time even while this wasn't close to us as far as distance wise. Things were so uncertain during those following days! I'm glad during those moments and even today I can say with the song " I can trust Jesus, He takes care of me!"

Abigail's First Day of 3rd Grade

I just realized that I have neglected to put pictures on here of my 'not so little' girl who started 3rd Grade this year! This year has taken a new direction for her and for me. I've been feeling the Lord leading me to Home School her. Some may have the opinion it was 'others' who gave us this decision but I believe with all my heart it is the Lord leading. To be honest, no one has even mentioned I needed to do this. I've put MANY of "fleeces" out as this was a BIG step for us and wanted to be sure this was TRULY the Lord. One MAJOR decision was my work schedule. I was working a full time job and I knew in order to homeschool I would need to cut back. Right now my income is NEEDED so I knew cutting out my entire income wasn't possible. I cut back to 24 hours a week to see if we could manage and things have been going very well. Oh we are not rich by no means in the worlds eyes, but I feel I will be richer Spiritually for following God. God has already blessed us in so many ways. We don't have the best of everything, but we have EACH OTHER! We may not get those things we want now, but we have what we NEED! Believe me, we are not going hungry. ANYWAY, this is about Abigail's 3rd Grade year!

When we took Zachary to 'Meet your Teacher' night at school we stopped in to see where Abigail would have been. She was a little disappointed because the teacher she really wanted was going to be her teacher this year. We took a few pictures there. Her sadness didn't last long because she does enjoy being at home and being able to go places with me IF I happen to go anyway.
