I am loving this song today! Really, I have for a while now. I think my favorite line is "Faith is moving without knowing." Every step we have taken toward Montreal has taken us into the unknown. Today for instance, we sign a lease for an apartment we have never entered in a city we have never been to.

God has prepared us to jump off the edge with Him without fear. Satan and society are still trying to instill fear in us. They would have us believe that God won't provide our remaining funds, that something terrible will happen, or that we are just not strong enough to do this. It is just not true!

Following God is the hardest thing we have ever done. It is hard to go into the unknown. We have had a lot of loving support but they are severely outnumbered by those who would have us turn our backs on God and this mission. The thing is, when you turn away from them and move your focus to God, it is sure a lot harder to hear them.
God I want to dream again. Take me where I've never been.

I want to go there. This time I'm not scared.

Now I am unbreakable. It's unmistakable.

No one can touch me. Nothing can stop me.

God calls us. He prepares us. He never guarantees that faith will be easy. Actually, He is pretty clear in the Bible that it will not be easy. But it is worth every difficulty to see God work in your life, in the lives around you, and to know that the path you are following is leading to Him.

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.
