6-10-12

 This week has been a busy one.  We chose June 8th as our last day of school and I'm glad we are done.  Officially.  We will continue learning through the summer, "unofficially".  Friday we finished up our standardized testing with the math portion.  This was the first time the girls have ever taken them and I was sweating bullets.  I mean, think about it, I'm their mother and their teacher so if they don't do well it's all on me.  In my opinion, those tests aren't a good representation of what my kids know, but the law requires them so they took them. 

We've been camping a couple of times this year with plans to do it a few more this year.  It's a great mini-getaway and we enjoy it so much.

A major trip to Goodwill is scheduled for tomorrow because we have been cleaning out stuff like crazy.  It feels so good to get rid of stuff that just clutters up our house and our lives.  I like having closets that aren't busting at the seams and you can actually find what's in them.

We skyped with Trev and Jess tonight and it's one my favorite things to do.  If we can't be with them, Skype is the next best thing.  I just hate it when we have to say goodbye.  That's the worst part.  Tonight Mike said it's beginning to be the worst part for him, too. We miss them so much.

We have Rejoice from FWBBC coming tomorrow to spend a couple of days with us and singing at our church Tuesday night.  It'll be fun to have them here.  Mike is planning an outreach activity for them so that should be interesting.

This week is going to be crazy.  It will include the students staying with us, a trip south, State Conference, cousins, fun, sweet fellowship, and some time of refreshment with just my husband.

There were 35 people today at church.  Mike preached a great sermon with the Gospel well presented.  We're so thankful for all the prayers.  It's only by God's power and grace that we can do what He's called us to do.
