I'm Not Alone

Monday night I went to a Homeschool Mom's Night of Encouragement.  I really went to get to know other home school moms in town and hoped to find someone to connect with for possible co-ops, fellowship, and encouragement.  Guess what?!  I found a mom who uses Tapestry of Grace.  I am not alone here in the Pacific Northwest.   Unfortunately, we are not in the same year.  She is in Year 1 while I am year 2, but at least we can use each other as resources.

Did I tell you I have lost more weight?  I have lost a total of 16 pounds so far.  I had to do a double take when I stepped on the scales the other morning.  The number in the tens place went down a digit.  WooHoo!

We got word from both of our prospective buyers.  The one couple did not want to change their offer but the second couple came up three thousand more.  We should close on our house in two weeks. 

Lastly, I enter the field of a working mom in November.  I have been asked to be the church secretary.  Til the end of the year I will be sharing the office with my mother-in-law.  She will work Monday and Tuesday and I will come in Wednesday through Friday.  However, in January she will retire and I will be there five days a week.  I will still be home schooling.  The kids will be doing their school at church.  We did a trial run of schooling at church while my in laws were on vacation.  The kids said it worked out alright.    The extra income will come in handy for school and it will help us to save up for a house. 

Oh, and I did get all my baking done and the circus was a lot of fun.
