Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Misphah and Shen. He named it Ebenezar, saying , "Thus far the Lord has helped us." 1 Samuel 7:12

I had a chance this morning to fill the planter and put some plants and seeds in the ground. You can read more about the process here and here.
At the far back right I planted my oregano and next to it the thyme. At the front left is the mint and I managed to get 1 and a half rows of carrots in and a row of lettuce.
Another shot of the garden and where it lies in terms of my house, that door... that's my front door. I know they say a nicely presented front door and front of house is a must, well for us it's a work in progress as well as a staging ground for all things explosive. I have big courtyard plans in my head. If you look close enough you'll see the multi-colored house we call home. I think we are ready to paint, one day.
I also thought it would be fun to show pics of our home school in action, my one student however thought differently. So I'll post this one anyway even though there is no student in the pic.
The dining room gets taken over during the weekdays with school. I usually sit in the chair on the right and Justin on the left, he keeps a nice stash of water nearby!
This year I didn't want to hang a dry erase or use the portable one I've used in the past so...
This is a hutch that holds our china and other fancy dishes. I taped two large pieces of paper together and taped them to the inside of the plexi-glass door. Now I can write with a dry erase and when I want my dining room back, voila! take the paper down!
We also like to keep some formulas hanging around.
These all have to do with circles, circumference, radius and diameter.
So that's that on the physical home front.

As for the internal one: I am finding it challenging transitioning back into home life after working, not to mention finding my "fit" again at meetings I use to "work" at. Student Ministries is developing great for this fall, I am super excited but I'd be lying to say it's not challenging. My old job, now someone elses,
and me around to watch it.

Bottom line: I am having some internal struggles with the change of jobs.

Don't get me wrong, I have never been so thrilled to be home and schooling and doing all things home, it's just I got alittle bit of worldly satisfaction with an "outside" job.

Plus I'm like a gerbil,
I don't care much for change.

Well I really need to run, I have to do a limo airport pick-up for my father-in-laws limo business; this will be the 4th job I've done for him, usually I am excited, today?
not so much.
Oh well, I'm sure the QT in the car will do me good.

Lord may I focus my mind on You.

We can start a support group. I am transitioning through lots of state....I am now teaching only online, not on campus (Iowa is a long commute). Somedays I wonder whose life I am living because nothing is familiar except what these three kids look like. It is sometime an out of body experience.
