What a GREAT day!!! :)

First of all, we have not received the test results as of yet. I do not know what the hold up is but hopefully we will get them by the end of today. Hopefully sooner rather than later. Until then, keep praying. :)

Now, the reason for this super excited post! I have not said much about our decision to home school for some very good reasons. Not because I am trying to leave anyone out. My main reason is because I don't want criticism and I don't want the people we love to believe that we think their decision to public school their children is wrong. That is NOT it at all. We firmly believe that this is what is best for Claire & Lily right now. In a few years, who knows? Although, it's looking pretty good that we will stick with home schooling. However, we will take it a year at a time.

That said, one thing I was unsure of was the kids not having socialization. Well, God answered that problem BIG TIME!!!!! We have a homeschooling group!! The oldest one being 8 and the youngest 3 months. Claire, Lily & Drew all have kids in their age group! I am SO Excited!!!!!

We met them Saturday and had such a great time eating and visiting!!! The kids had so much fun playing together and they are all such nice children. They are very well behaved and they pray before meals and say" excuse me" and "please"! My kind of kids!!!! The parents are SO super nice and they work hard to include everyone. :)

Today we got together and took the kids to the park. That was loads of fun! The kids DID NOT want to go home! We are going to get together once a week and just so many group activities with the kids. WOW! I am just overwhelmed and so excited at God's answer to our prayers!!!

Anyway, just wanted to blog about that because I had such a great day and the kids did, too! :)

And if anyone is interested in how the kids can play sports being homeschooled? The kids can play summer league and by state law, I believe that the public schools MUST let them play if they wish, I am thinking that is right, anyway.

WOW! I am just so excited and happy right now!!!!!

Although, I would appreciate your prayers for my family right now. My Uncle Roy passed away and his funeral is tomorrow. Please pray for my Aunt Jean and his kids: Tony, Roy Lee & Kathy and all of their grandchildren. Also, pray for my Dad as he is having a rough time of it.

Thanks and ya'll have a great week!!!
