PD started football practice this week. He is loving it, which I'm so thankful for, because it is a big commitment. He has practices 4 times a week this first month before the games start. Seems a little crazy to me but I'm not the coach. PD loves to tackle, when he plays football with his brothers he goes slow enough that they can catch him just so they can tackle each other. It will be fun to watch him play.
Last night was Meet your Teacher night at the elementary school that DJ, SJ, and AJ will be going to this year. I'm glad that it looks like all our boys will have good teachers. We are starting something new with all the kids attending public school this year. For the last four years I have been home schooling them. But times and needs change and we really feel like this is what God wants us to do now.
LA passed his driving test yesterday and now has his farm permit. That means he can drive to school and to farm related work by himself. He is sure growing up.
I have no idea what I'm going to do with myself now with all the kids in school all day! I mean, I have a few projects I can work on for a while but then what? I guess I'm having my mid-life crisis. (: I have some ideas but none seem quite right yet. I'm sure with time God will make things clear.
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven.
