It is Wednesday...almost there!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a good morning. Not much planned for me and the girls today. Isabella has her well baby appointment at 1 today which means we need to be dressed and out the door by 12. Emily keeps after me to take her to the playground. She went everyday over the week end including Monday so I am thinking that will have to be on our agenda today. I still have so much cleaning to do. I am so behind. I have no energy and haven't for the last 2 months. I am seriously thinking my iron is off again! 

Our little girls are 3 and 1 and we have not began wondering what we are going to do as far as school goes. I have always said my little girls will not be going to public schools. I really do not like them at all and hate what they teach our children nowadays. So yesterday I began looking into Christian schools here in NJ, there are not a lot, and found out they start out at 4000 a year and that is for one child!! I was like man, we are not down south anymore. So needless to say unless they can get a scholarship that is out of the question. I wanted originally to put them in a Christian school until about the 3rd grade then homeschool them after that. Now I am faced with the decision to put them in a public school for a few years and eat my words or to just homeschool them outright. The only thing I am worried about with homeschooling them starting in Kindergarten is my patience and dedication. We are praying about what to do. We want to put her in K-4 next year so please pray for God's guidance on this for us and that we do what is best for them!

I am so looking forward to ordering my drops and starting my diet on the 24th!!! I am psyched! I KNOW I am going to be able to do this because I have put God in control! He has to be or else I know I will fail at it. I have a friend who is also battling his weight and he also has a blog. He is someone I went to college with and is now a preacher. He is an awesome person with one the best attitudes I have seen. Please go to his blog and read it! War on Weight 

Well I am off of her for the day and as always, I hope everyone has a blessed day and remember Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ which strengthenth me."

I thought I would never in my life be able to do homeschool kindergarten myself but I have done it 3 times now and taught my kids to read. I can't say how great that makes me feel. I am working on my almost 3 yr old now. She knows her her ABCs and the sounds already and her colors, shapes, and can count to 20. She can tell you Eph 6:1 and Psalm 100:1. We are working on the her to memorize the whole Psalm. It took 2 days for her to memorize the first verse. If you dedicate yourself like Philippians 4;13 you can do it! I thought just like you did but the LORD changed my heart on that matter. I too am struggling with losing weight myself. It seems like no matter how hard I try it isn't coming off. I workout everyday at the gym except Sunday's because we are in church morning and night. So no time plus I want my afternoon nap.
