Finally!! Time to sit out on the deck and relax a little bit and catch up. I didn't get to add this to my blog on Reagan's birthday like I wanted to. I just can't believe my middle baby is 7. We did pull out the baby book on his birthday and I told him how much I loved holding him and kissing his fat rolls! You would never know how chubby he was by looking at him today. I am so proud of my Reagan! He is so inquisitive, sweet, funny, and he is crazy about Legos!! I was worried about homeschooling at first but he makes it fun. I want to stay home and homeschool but that's just not possible right now. Maybe next year. I just think of all the fun and wonderful things we could do if I could be with them all day. It is in God's hands so we will see what He has planned for me. I hate that Kelly lost his job but I can also see the blessing in it. He has spent more time with the kids and I can see the result. I love to see them hugging on him and playing together and now Kelly and the boys are doing Boy Scouts together. I can see their relationship getting stronger and stronger. Even though times get tough I just have to remember that we are so blessed and that we have a Savior who loves us and takes care of us!
Happy Birthday to my sweet, sweet Reagie Bug!!

It is quite an understatement when I say I have been busy! I don't know how I have made it through some days. I think I can be superwoman and then get upset when I am not. I have spent more time reading God's word and praying. I have to get those in or I would have already fallen apart. I have a verse that I go to a lot! Psalm 31:3 For You are my rock and my fortress; Therefore, for Your name's sake, Lead me and guide me. I gave this verse to my students at the beginning of the year with a small rock and told them to remember the verse and hold on to their rock this year to help them get through the tough times. I have found myself holding my rock quite a bit lately. I pray that God will send me a sign of what I need to do. It is so hard teaching and trying to homeschool Reagan. I don't feel like I can do my best because I don't have the time to really focus on one or the other. Reagan seems to be enjoying homeschool. He loves to be challenged and he is so loving! I wish I could work part-time or find something that doesn't take the planning and grading that I have to do right now. I pray that Kelly would find a job with good pay and benefits that would allow me to spend more time at home. It is hard for me to be patient and maybe that's what God is trying to teach me right now. I don't know what His plans are for me and my family but I know He is there and He knows. I just have to remind myself to be patient and have faith that He will provide and make His plans known in His time. Lead me and guide me Lord and give me the strength to keep going!
