School continues here, we are close to being done for the year, right now at the rate we are going we will be finished first part of May. So I am starting to look at some summer learning things for us. We won't be doing full-time school this year, but continue on in language arts and possibly start cursive and latin. We will have a fun summer with golf, tball, VBS, and probably swimming lessons again. We are getting ready to get baby chicks for the chicken coop which is about finished, just waiting for the weather to cooperate and hopefully soon start planning the garden. All which will make great learning opportunities. I also need to order our curriculum for the 2015-2016 school year, which will be here sooner then I want it to be. Years fly by too fast!!
During my time of Lent, which has been such a refreshing time being in the Word daily! I am also reading through a few other books too. God has opened my eyes to how I sometimes, just get in HIS way, I try to fix people, instead of letting the ONE fix them, all I need to do is love and point them to the ONE, who can fix all, even what we think it may be impossible. However, nothing is impossible with God! I am also a doer, and will take on task upon task, until I am worn thin. We started homeschooling this year, and I thought that nothing in my life would need to change I could continue to do it all, ha, that has proven wrong. God kept telling me to move out of the way. So I finally did, I stepped away from something I have be doing for about 5 years and that was mom ministry. I started being a part of a group in Texas and started a group here after shortly moving here as there was not one. Mom ministry has been such a blessing to me in my life, I know I would not be where I am without some of those faithful ladies encouraging, praying, and mentoring me. So for now I am stepping away, not that I won't be there, I am in full support (because us mama's we need each other), but stepping down from leadership/coordinating roles. God has a plan, and there will be new leadership, someone that will take this group to the next level, as it continues to grow. We already have a great MOM team! I am taking some personal time to refresh, refuel and hear from God to where he wants me. Right now being a homeschool mom and wife is enough. Funny thing, once I let it go, other things have come up that normally I probably be too busy to say yes to. One thing that I am excited about is the homeschool coop we will be a part of next year! So will see just what God has in store, life is a journey and I am doing my best to follow the lead of the ONE who has it!
