I fell off the blogging wagon not very long after I started again. sigh I would like to get posts caught up from May until now but that will take some time. For now, I want to post about the most major change we have had this summer.
Bug came back to live with us! We found out on a Thursday that she might be coming, the following Saturday it was decided for sure, and the following Thursday she moved back in. Whew! We decided that she would need her own room this time so we set up about renovating the storage room for her. We had to clean it out first and that took almost a week! Needless to say there were things in there that had not seen the light of day in over 10 years. ahem Moving on...
The renovations went well and we had several friends come over and help us. We couldn't have done it without their help. Her room took a few weeks to finish but it is a great room for her and is a sanctuary already.
We let her pick out the paint color-which was a little scary! Thankfully the paint color was tempered by the flooring and her bedding. I think we will be adding things here and there until we are satisfied with the final outcome. For now, it is perfect.
The other big change, as if that one wasn't enough, is the fact that we are homeschooling her. We had originally planned to put her in school since that is what she has been doing and was doing very well with it. BUT, when I went to enroll her I was told NO. We don't have guardianship yet and her grandpa isn't in the right district...so no public school. I had been having some doubts as to putting her in such a large school after her very small one but was trusting that God would work it out. He did!
It is going pretty well so far. We are using Time4Learning and she is really enjoying it. We will see what happens as the year progresses.
