third year

Our third school year in Davao has begun!
"Try not to have a good time...
this is supposed to be educational." 
-Charles Schulz 

Breaking with tradition, I have no first-day-of-school photos, since I was back in the USA that day.  Amy, Elise and Michael jumped into the home school schedule on their own, while attending classes part-time at the local international school. (Not to mention that at the same time they were cooking the meals, cleaning house, and doctoring Michael who came down with a fever and cold while I was gone.  I'm proud of my students, and of their wonderful dad who kept the laundry washed, the trash managed, and food in the house!  You guys are the best.)

Thanks to Mark's initiative, furnishings in our home have been switched around, and what was before our bedroom is now the school/family room.  It's a smart choice, since this is the coolest room in the house, and the one we all gravitated to for daily study, even if it meant sitting on the bed. Now we can all sit on chairs!  Revolutionary changes, it's true.

The year's schedule is busy, as one of these three students seem to be continually leaving for or coming home from classes throughout the day. 

And not all of the routine is quiet.

But it's all good.

May it be a year of growth for all of us, in knowledge and wisdom, in grace and in godliness...

An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, 
and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.  
Proverbs 18:15
