Well It was Better than Last Year



1st Day of School

Jack started 1st grade today and only cried for a few minutes when I dropped him off. This is much better than last year when he started crying (and hiding from us) hours before we even left for school. I really like his teacher and feel very good about moving him to the public school here. I know it sounds odd for the pastor's wife to be moving her child from private school to public school, but I learned last year that the kids in private school are going to teach my son all the things that I feared he would learn from the public school kids. The only difference was that it was costing me $400 a month for him to learn them. :) Don't get me wrong, the scripture memory was great too, but for $400 a month I should be able to get a dry erase board and marker and teach my children verses each week. Academically, Jack's new elementary is the best and until God calls me to home school (which I am not opposed to), that is probably where he will be.


Miss Ruthie Mei

When I 1st heard about Ruthie's condition, my standard statement was, "So she will never play a musical instrument. That is no reason to spend the rest of your life in an institution". I stand corrected my friends. My little girl loves musical instruments and just might be determined enough to learn to play one.

BTW, I was SO confused by your comment on my blog post. At first I thought you accidentally left it on the wrong blog. But then I realized you were looking at my kitchen...too funny. Anyway, I am blessed with much kitchen space...this is our 2nd home. We've been here over 7 and 1/2 years now. But our first home had a VERY small kitchen. It was a very cute home, but the kitchen wasn't much better than apartment sized. I actually had to use a hallway closet for more storage. So the kitchen was #1 on my wish-list when we moved...and I got more than I needed this time around. God is GOOD!! :)
