Just wanted to give a quick update on Matthew and Grace and Andrew and Elizabeth.
Grace is in her second week of homeschooling and doing great!! She is super self disciplined so this works out for everyone. She is taking Biology, Math, History and English writing. For her electives Grace is taking Consumer Math, Home Ec and Art. I mostly just supervise as all of her lessons are on DVD if she needs help with explanations. At Grade 10 level, she needs to be working independently, which she is. We are so pleased it is working out and a super shout out to Aunt Becca and cousins Beth and Brooke for helping us get started so well.
Matthew is in his Senior/Matric year. He has hit the ground running. He is still at Waterstone and is doing the IEB curriculum which is super demanding and LOTS of hard work. Please pray for him. He works quite slowly and needs to learn he must work faster. He also is learning the joy of an alarm clock and getting himself up and being totally responsible for all his assignments. We were quite hands off last year but are trying to teach him before university the importance of time management and getting assignments done. Which honestly he is struggling. Mom is also struggling watching his struggle. Please pray for Matthew. We need our prayer warriors out there to put him at the top of your list. We can always count on you!
Andrew and Elizabeth
The best news of the year is that we are gonna be GRANDPARENTS!! Can I get a WHOOP WHOOP!! We are super excited to announce that Andrew and Elizabeth are gonna be parents. The due date is August 1st and we are trying to work out logistics of coming home and seeing the baby. At this point, David and I will come separately in two week stints, we think. This will also help us in bringing things home. We are praying for a healthy pregnancy and healthy birth and cannot wait! Let the spoiling begin!!
Thanks again to all our prayer warriors who keep our kids at the top of your prayer lists! We couldn’t do this African adventure without you!
