Summer is still here...but let the schooling begin!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."     Jeremiah 29:11

The school year has begun at Bridwell Christian Academy.  I'm glad we started early because, so far, it's been 2 weeks and we only completed 5 days of school.  Some days are a challenge.  Rhealyn says she doesn't like school, yet she carries around her children's encyclopedia book and loves to look at it.

I feel like I'm neglecting Valor because I'm so concentrated on Rhealyn.  He does good putting puzzles together by himself and playing with his trains and cars, but he also finds my phone and knows how to get to the PBS app I have on there to watch videos.  I want to include him in on the learning, but it's way to advance for him right now.  With a 4 year gap between them I feel like they are so divided.

But then again they get along very well (most of the time) and make each other laugh.  I love watching them interact with Valor following every action Rhealyn does and actually doing what she says.  I can only pray that this connection between never goes away, or better yet, gets stronger.

We had a very fun summer with friends and family gathering for dinners and swim parties.  We are very thankful to have such wonderful and supportive people in our lives.
