First Day of School

This is Madison working on handwriting, leaning back in her chair (the photo is not sideways).
Kaitlyn on the first day back to school working on math...what a genius!
Jett's favorite job was holding the Christian flag...he was an expert in that department!

It's official...we started school yesterday. God was so gracious to us and allowed us the time to get back into the groove of school. What a blessing! The girls are a little "rusty" on some basic math but that just comes back with practice!

Kaitlyn is enjoying reading more than ever and does fabulous with anything relating to math. Madison is our quick memorizer and learns things that Kaitlyn is supposed to know. She loves to read as well and drama is her specialty!
Jett got to hold the Christian flag yesterday and began some basic phonics. He thinks it is fun to "go to school" even if it is only for 30 minutes or so (it may have been more like 20 minutes). He played a lot and seems to enjoy the outdoors the most of all.
JT will be in Arizona until the 23rd...we all miss him terribly. It is a tough time for him to be away, but we all know that his sacrifices are for the Kingdom (we've learned through the years that it is not always a matter of convenience or our feelings but it's about God's timing). We are so thankful for the way JT leads our family, and when he is gone, we all feel a little lost. We can't wait for him to get home!

Having met your son at EN this summer it is just a delight to see him with his forever family.

May the Lord bless your family dearly as you walk with Him!
