The last few months have flown by and I haven’t been able to blog as much as I would like. So here is a Williams “Catch Up” post.
It’s hard to believe that it is already the middle of March. This past year has flown by. In January we started back at the Consortium each Wednesday. (Our church has been so gracious to open up the building as well as serve lunch to all the students and teachers each week. I am truly blessed to be a part of Cornerstone and what God is doing there.) The three A’s each took a full day’s worth of classes and really enjoyed them (plus all the socializing with friends).
Dana taught a Biblical Greek class. The class learned a lot of practical application on how to study their Bible and seemed to enjoy it, but they did complain about all the homework. I tried to tell him that homeschooling students are not use to doing homework…..
I taught Blogging 101. During the class we created an ETC Youth blog. You can check it out here. My students also created their own personal blogs just for fun. Aaron complains that they never gets visitors, so please go check out their blogs …..poor things.
At the end of the quarter we held an Exhibition Program at Cornerstone. There were tons of great performances. We have a lot of talented children in our 65+ family homeschool group. During the night the Drama Class put on short play called the Emperors New Rags. Guess who played the part of the king?
In February Cornerstone hosted a very successful Valentine’s Banquet. One of the best things about our church is the love we have for one another. So this was a wonderful opportunity to share our love and God’s love with others outside the church.
The children enjoyed a small snow day during the month of February. Being our first year back in Arkansas I, of course, expected a bigger winter. But that’s okay. They still had fun.
It didn’t last long. The next day we were all in t-shirts driving around town with the sunroof open. I do believe that winter is over.
Some of the families in our homeschool group took a field trip to a local fire station a few weeks ago. We took my 2 year old nephew and he spent the day with us. This was his first time to be with us by himself. We are so thankful to be close family again! Have I said that already?
Dana and I have both been extremely busy. He has more projects than I care to mention. But he’s loving every minute of it.
And I have been somewhat consumed finishing up my 4th book.
So, we decided to take a Saturday a couple of weeks ago and spend it at Devil’s Den State Park. Dana and I have not been there in years. We took a picnic and spent the afternoon hiking. It was a wonderful family day.
God has certainly blessed our family. I am looking forward to seeing what He has in store for us and excited about what the future holds. So until next time, I’ll be here….living that abundant life.
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” (Gal 2:20)
