And the year begins
08 16, 09
Here in the Kirklin house we tend to live our lives around the school year calendar. I don’t know if that’s because of being married to a teacher or having served in our church for so long and that seems to be when the “ministry” year starts.
We are gearing up for the year to begin. I think we can say that it officially begins tomorrow. I need to be up bright and early because the boys that I’m babysitting this year (for Ben’s teacher last year) are set to arrive at 7:30! This is something that is a little new for all of us. The boys are 3 and 1. They are wonderfully behaved boys, but the issue I’m having is my daughter doesn’t seem to like having one so close to her age around. She doesn’t like sharing her momma!
On Tuesday we are going to do a bit of schooling. We’ve had about a four week break this last month and it’s time to get back to it. We officially start school on the 24th. Benjamin is getting use to the idea that mom is going to be his teacher. Becca is totally on board and is excited to learn anything she can.
This week Walter will hopefully be putting the finishing touch on his resume and cover letter and be sending it off to a few churches. There are a few churches that have caught our eye, now we just have to see if Walter catches their eye.
Ministry-wise we are gearing up to continue to host our small group on Thursday nights. We love our small group, it’s an eclectic group of people. An older couple and then two single guys and then Walter and I. But we all have one thing in common and that’s to learn more about the Lord. We are hoping to expand the group a bit. We also might start leading the college group at church.
With homeschooling, doing daycare, soccer for both kids, AWANA and possibly a homeschool co-op group, scouts and piano lessongs for Ben we have a full plate. But I know that God is in control and in charge. And with that I can fully say….. Let the year begin, because HE who is in charge knows how it will end!
