Saturday morning we told the kids that when God deals with us, speaks to our hearts about change, it's really important to obey. Obedience brings blessing and disobedience brings heartache. Samuel said, "OK, so what's the change?" I told them I was going to be their teacher. "What? You mean we're going to be homeschooled?" After the initial shock, we talked about the benefits and why we felt like this is a move for us, they were tolerable of the idea.
Monday when I pulled into school, Samuel was yelling to his friend "I'm going to be homeschooled!" with a fair amount of excitement.
