We believe what we believe..and so we do what we do...

We are winding down here as far as school goes.  I've flipped through Ava's curriculum and we are 'right on schedule' (at least my desired schedule).  We will be done by the end of May.  This has been one of the most exciting experiences and time in my life.  I can not believe I taught Ava to read, to count by 2's, 5's and 10's.  To tell time.  To write her first name and last name.  And sooo many other things.  I am truly amazed..  At myself for following what we believed the direction God was taking our family in.  At myself to stand up to all the naysayers.  To keep our home in order, have a home birth, struggle with my weight and just life happening all around us.

I did it!  We did it!  Ava you did it!  Thank you God for guiding us!  Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

Ok... so we are not done quite yet.. but I am still excited!

I also experienced another first.. I was always told by other homeschooling families that the older children will inevitable teach the younger ones.. and so I thought to myself.. "Nahhhh that won't happen here... "  Well check out the pictures below.  They're true.  They are not staged.  Grace by her own will wanted to sit with Ava while she did her seat work.  And Ava very willingly and happily to have Grace in her lap and explain to her what she was working on.  Now that is life people!  That is how things sink into your brain.  When you can explain something to someone you know you've got it! And understood it YOURSELF!
