Change is one of God's greatest gifts and one of his most useful tools.  I've learned the hard way that change can push us, pull us, rebuke and remake us.  It can show us who we've become, in the worst ways, and also in the best ways.  I've learned that it's not something to run away from, as though we could, and I've learned that in many cases, change is not a function of life's cruelty but instead a function of God's graciousness.
 Patience and Grace. 
Patience and Grace.
This is my daily  homeschooling prayer
throughout the whole day.
We have been talking  some time now about schooling Miah at home.  It broke my heart sometimes to drop him off every day while the others were at home.  God has been putting it on our hearts for the last few months.  I just had to surrender and listen.  We  have finally made that decision to add him into the mix.  He really struggled with going to public school while we're all at home.  Daily struggles we parents had to deal with that others never saw.   So we decided over break to add him into the mix.  Jeremiah was super excited.  He is doing the Heart of Dakota curriculum just like the rest.  It has been just over a week and he is doing great.  Finding our nitch and groove and getting it to work. Hoping to ignite his fire to learn and to read.  He would rather play and hang around outside.  Grace and patience for this mama are key.  Hoping to nip his foolishness in the butt too!!  The other kids are super excited.  Gabe is loving it. Gabe always asked where Miah went when I took him to school.  He couldn't be happier. 

This is what our quiet time looks like.  Gabe is napping in our bed by himself and we are all reading. 

 love that they love to be together...

I love this journey!
