Yesterday, I found some time to spend with a dear friend of mine here, that is also moving away, she parts Saturday from these parts. She will be 5 hours from me which is farther then I like, but we will still be able to communicate and sometime in the future will need to make a homeschool field trip to visit. My daughter and her adore each other, the boys have fun and I love my talks with my friend. We get into some good deep conversations and she has been such a wealth of help in homeschooling. Plus we just get each other!
This week it seemed there was an appointment to be at every day, I had a dermatology appointment to get a mole removed, this is not my first time doing this, but it is important I keep having my skin checked since I had some precancerous one's removed last year. Abigail had a check-up, we had school to do, and piano lessons today! Earlier in the week, I let Aidan's preschool know when his last day would be at school, sad about it, as we have been a part of KidsFirst for 4 years and so love it there. Abigail attended and graduated from there two years ago. Anyhow, with dates now planned out, I need to adjust some things on our schedule, one is in our homeschool, so instead of taking fall break, we will do school and then take the following week off to finish packing and moving. We may even take an additional week off if need be to take some time adjusting to our new surroundings and do some exploring. Then after that will be back to school and Aidan will be joining us, doing some preschool. I had not planned on that!! So y'all be in prayer for us, this will be a bit of an adjustment, but at the same time, I think it will be great! If I fail, well Abigail will just have to take over, just kidding. Though she loves to play teacher! So they will probably have some fun working together and helping each other out. I have some workbooks picked out so Aidan can work on letters and sounds, coloring sheets, practice drawing and counting numbers. Other than that he will choose then to sit in, listen, and partake in our history and science curriculum, if not then he will have a little free time to play with his tractors.

Encouraging reads of the week:
There are times in your spiritual life when there is confusion, and the way out of it is not simply to say that you should not be confused. It is not a matter of right and wrong, but a matter of God taking you through a way that you temporarily do not understand. And it is only by going through the spiritual confusion that you will come to the understanding of what God wants for you. http://utmost.org/going-through-spiritual-confusion/
