So I have Alexander registered now with Alpha Omega. We should probably have the books in by the second week in September. So we will probably start the third week. We have done our school shopping. And Alex is getting really excited. Although he keeps asking again and again if he is staying home with me instead of going to school. I assure him each time that he is staying home and I am going to be his teacher. I'm really glad we made this decision and I'm getting excited to start soon.

On the adoption front. We are still praying everyday. My heart is so broken for the orphans. And I know without a doubt that this is something He has placed in my heart for a reason. And following these adoption blogs is good for my heart. Everytime I'm thinking there's no way. I should just give up...These blogs keep me praying,keep me believing that It will happen! My husband works construction and well work has been slow. We have been trying to start a savings account to start saving for the adoption, but it's going very slow. Everytime it seems to be going good, he doesnt get work and ewe have to use it for bills...but thank God we have it. And I'm still believing that he is just preparing us. Helping us learn to be very careful with our money. And teaching us patience. I don't honestly know 100% for sure when we will adopt, where from..I just want to put myself out of the way, and Go with God. The when and where doesn't matter to me right now. All I know is he is preparing our hearts and putting us in the place where He wants us. We are commited in our hearts to do this. And are waiting on him to lead us exactly where He wants us. So please pray with us.

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life[b]?  28"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

I'M Back!!!

So my internet has been down recently, which is why I kind of vanished from the blogger world. Thought I would let you guys know that I'm still here:) And that I missed blogger more then anything else on the computer. You really don't realize how much encouragement I get spiritually, from reading your blogs. No matter what I am going through there's always something said that lifts me up. So thanks all my blogger friends for your encouraging blogs.:)♥ Rachel

So i have made a decision. After much consideration me and Eric have decided we definately want our children to be homeschooled. We have found a christian based curriculum that we are going to use and Alexander will be starting kindergarten for sure this fall!! It is more pricey to homeschool..but totally worth it. From what we have seen the schools are a mess these days. I have had people say "well how are they going to be a witness if they don't go to school. And a blog I ran across had a reply to that, and I loved it. Do we want to expose our children to ungodly teaching when they are at a young age and unable to understand what's true from what's not? She asked if we were being selfish to put  our own childs needs before societies needs. Then she went on to talk about how God has given us as parents the responsibility to teach and train our children. And that they can't very well go out and influence the world for good until they have been prepared for it. Proverbs 22:6 says  Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. So that's what I want to do. I want to prepare my children here. Teach them about God and all the other things that they need to be taught. And spend all my time with focusing on equiping them. After all doesn't the bible tell us that children are like arrows? Sharpen them right, teach them right..and these children will be like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, changing this world. I do have to say that this will be a new experience and I'm sure it will take some time to get on track..but I'm excited! So if you are already a homeschooling mama and have some suggestions any tips/websites would be appreciated :)
