The Day is Here

PackedBoxesWhat a month! I am very much an introvert and this solid month of family and friend get togethers has been a little tough. It isn't just the days surrounded by people though. It has been very hard to say good-bye to our friends and family. We have continued to stay focused on what God has set before us though. It is an exciting adventure and there is a wonderful group of people in Montreal that are waiting to say hello.

Nearly everything is packed. We are spending the day doing last loads of laundry, packing up all our clothes, and staging the garage for a quick and easy transfer into the U-Haul tomorrow. 2 years ago we had a call with someone from ReachGlobal about possibly being missionaries. It has been a long 2 years. We have had emotional highs and lows that are beyond description. We have grown immensely in our faith and trust in God. Now the day to leave for the field is finally upon us.

Tomorrow we pack our family like sardines into a U-Haul and drive into the unknown. I'm not nervous at all. I can't even sleep at night for excitement and thinking out if everything is done. We know that God goes before us into this and that He will be here watching over the loved ones we are leaving behind. My next post will be from Canada! Crazy! I almost can't believe we are finally leaving tomorrow.

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.
