Does Time Really Fly?

It is so hard to believe that our summer is almost gone;  the kids start back to school on Monday...all three of them.  Jack was enrolled in a 3 day a week (half day) program at the girl's school and we found out this week that his teacher had to unexpectedly resign.  Thankfully we were able to move him to another class, with an amazing teacher, who actually taught me as a child and also Lucy, but he will now be going 5 days a week.  I was not mentally prepared to make that decision, but I feel God's peace that we did the right thing.

So as I prepare to send all my babies back to school next week I have spent a lot of time thinking about how far we have all come in the past 2 years.  All of our lives changed so much in what seems like the blink of an eye.  And just like that, Ella is at her first sleep away camp, Lucy is swimming the pool all by herself and Jack is going to preschool!  Our lives have been a roller coaster indeed.

Oh, but these precious children of mine.  They make every day so sweet.  I am going to miss them like crazy when school starts back, but I am grateful for the opportunity they have to learn and grow in their knowledge of life and Christ.

These pictures are from our trip last weekend to our local water park.  Erik's sister was in town visiting and we had a wonderful week with our cousins.

Lucy crashed after playing hard for two hours.  

I wanted to mention that if you are local and are looking for a good Christian school for your children, I encourage you to check out Tipton Christian Academy.  We have an incredible thing going on at TCA and we would love for you to be a part of it!  I would love to go on for days about the accomplishments of our students, but I'll just leave you with this: our SAT-10 scores this year placed all but 2 out of 80 children in our school at least two whole grade levels above their actual grade level.  Tell me that isn't amazing!
