School Starts!

Our first day of homeschooling started yesterday.

For the last couple weeks, we have been busy building desks and gathering supplies. Thanks to Esther's step-dad, Dave, for helping me build the desk, and my dad for adding an electrical outlet and some other finishing touches!

Esther really enjoyed doing a "Welcome To School" bulletin board.

Melanie is in third grade this year. She was so excited about school beginning, she had a hard time getting to sleep the night before.

Alayna begins first grade.

The first day of your new adventure looks like it was a success. The desk turned out great. I believe the kids are going to have a great school year. Let's see, maybe a trip to Florida could be arranged as part of and educational field trip.

Bro. & Sis Hilling so great on how you have set up the school. It is so important to have things looking good to give confedidence not only to the children, but the parent(S) also who is teaching. Keep strong in the things of the Lord and He is going to help you.
Love & Prayers, Eileen
