Mission Update: Leave Date

It seems like a long time since I was able to share an actual update on our mission trip. We have been going through quite a season of change and waiting over these past months. God has been using this time to prepare us for the mission field. Our family has changed a lot since we first started this journey and I suspect that God will continue to sift and refine us till we leave and every day after.

So what is the new news? We have been working on a leave date with our team. We had to keep in mind when language school would be starting and have time to find an apartment. The date we have agreed upon and are now focusing on is January 1st, 2015. IMG_2185

We will be spending September and October visiting churches and connecting with individuals who may partner with us in God's work. We will be connecting with people about their pledge amounts, looking into final details for travel and arrival, re-packing the few belongings we had unpacked at my parent's house. In November and December we will be visiting with as many of our friends and family as we can so we can say our good-byes. We will also make sure to get final numbers and send out letters for our partners to begin giving. There is a lot of work to be done and though January feels like ages away at times, it will be here in a flash and we will want to be prepared.

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
