Halfway

I cannot believe it, but we are already over halfway through our short term mission trip in Montreal. Nearly seven months flew by very quickly. It is a very interesting time for us right now. We are picking up the pace in our mission work. Filming projects are piling up and ready to be edited. City Church is continuing to grow and looking at adding and changing many areas of ministry. The church planting conference is just around the corner. It is enough to keep us plenty busy.




There is so much more to think about though. In about 4 months we will be returning to Minnesota. There are living arrangements to plan. We will need an income of some sort. There will be packing to start. Plus we will be arriving just in time for the holidays, which will also need to be planned.




If that was not enough, we are also planning our return to Montreal as long term missionaries. That involves more paperwork, applications, and training. There is also deciding on what our long term ministry will be and preparing for another year or two of church visits and support raising.




With all that is on our plate right now, you would think that we were going mad with anxiety and worry. In actuality, god has given us an incredible amount of peace going forward into the next few months. We are feeling patience with all of the processes and none of the rush. Living day by day is starting to be well balanced with planning ahead and that just feels great.

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.
