Life at our House

Life has been busy here. We are getting ready for Christmas; and Zak officially started his Christmas break this afternoon! We don't have a lot of plans - but are looking forward to enjoying time together as a family.

Things have been going well for us here. I feel badly that I have not posted more; but just have not found the time to go and get it done. It is different not having the Internet at the house and having to go out and do any blogging. I suppose if I was organized I would be able to do it; but just have not mastered this at this time. It looks like we will be getting Internet back at the house and that will make this whole thing a lot easier and I will be able to blog more. :)

Zak has gotten back to his normal again. The doctors did diagnosis him with Tourette Syndrome. They have been talking about this for several years now. So, we have another syndrome to add to the list. I guess it makes life interesting and keeps us from being bored. It was a little bit of an upheaval for me; but then I reminded myself that it is just a name to go with what we have been dealing with for the past couple of years; in actuality nothing has changed - we just have a name for it all.

Overall, he is doing well in school and is learning to read. It is fun to watch the lights going on and have him taking in so much. We are so thankful that God led us to put him into school. It has been very good for him and for the entire family.

The school year is going very well. I am teaching the kids for the first time. (In time past we have used the video school.) I really really like teaching them myself. We will go back to using another curriculum next year as I have not been impressed with the one that we have been using; but it has been good to be the one teaching the kids their studies. Rachel also has helped out a lot in teaching subjects that I am not sure of. That would be - MATH! I am thankful that she is home and able to help me.

Well, that is about it for what is happening at our house right now. I hope to get up a Christmas Letter post here this weekend. We will see if I am able to accomplish that. If I do not, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I am glad you did; and I bet you are glad I finally posted something for you to stop by for. LOL

Merry Christmas,
