The new normal
When something traumatic happens, one way to talk yourself down from the ledge of insanity is to say "this is  the new normal"
Only, I feel like I'm saying that every couple of months and nothing traumatic is happening.
Next year Stewart will join John-Thomas at Stanton High School and Emmett will go to Landon Middle.
And Elise?  I had planned on homeschooling her until she reached 6Th grade.
Last year was a very bad year with the contracted home-school company provided by the county.
I thought I was going to have to go it alone.
But God
don't you love it when pastors and teachers use the
But God
Two weeks ago my dad asked me if he could pay for Elise to go to private school.
Four months ago I wondered if my dad would pay for Elise to go to Harvest, the three day a week private/home-school hybrid.
Last week we had a parent information appt. and Elise tested to see if she was qualified to enter their third grade.
Last night we spent an hour filling out paperwork.
Next Monday, God willing, we will drop off the paperwork and registration fee.

Three different schools in the fall with start times all within 40 minutes of each other.
Susan has graciously offered to take Emmett to school.
Now I just have to go to two different schools, 40 minutes apart from each other.
Four kids going to three outstanding schools.

 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,  not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:4-10
