Hope on...Journey on

No time for blogging lately!  My plate is completely full.  With marathon training, college, homeschooling, being Mommy and a wife my days stay pretty busy.  The marathon is about 30 days away and I'm pretty excited about it and scared at the same time.  I'm pretty sure I'll finish it, but unsure of the time it will take me. :) 

I've also completed one class online that I started a few months ago, and registered for two more this semester.  I'm determined to finish my degree this time. 

We've landed back in our home town also.  We needed to be closer to family.  This particular town will likely not stay our home, but we do plan to be closer than 7 hours away this time.  I thought we could come back here after a year and have a fresh start, but some things never change. 

The little kids are attending the local public school and they love it.  They love getting to see and spend time with their friends.  I know most of the teachers there and I honestly couldn't go wrong with any of them. 

Bre started public school, but we withdrew her after 4 days.  Like I said, some things just never change.  It was a very bad atmosphere for her.  She had come so far letting go of the past and anger issues we had dealt with regarding things that went on prior to our move, and I didn't want to see her fall back into that again.  She is now attending an online private christian school which she LOVES!  After she completes the courses she's enrolled in now, she has only 8 credits left to graduate.  She will also graduate with a high school diploma and YES she will walk the stage and receive it!  She has access to all the things that public school offers and more, such as sports, cheerleading, clubs.  She just gets much better field trips. ;)  She's doing great, and is actually ahead of pace and making great grades.  Today she was actually finished with her assignments by 10:00 and is still ahead of pace in her courses.  She recently took her first ACT and scored amazing!  I was so proud of her!  She's excited to begin some college courses next year and continues to go back and forth from law school to pediatric oncology as her future career! I love hearing about her big dreams!

With everything life tends to keep throwing our way, we just HOPE ON...JOURNEY ON.

Things are going ok, but I have to say that I am really missing this place!  I want to get back to my city by the bay.....
