This is when another one of my girls came up to me with this note. She quickly ran off, but I called her back to me. I touched her and told her I loved her too. She had nothing to do with the previous conflict, but she sensed my sorrow. She loved me. I told her that her note reminds me of Jesus' love. He loves us, too, even when things go wrong.
They say to look for teachable moments when raising children. This moment was one of God's grace teaching me through my little girl.

|Amy, Lizzy, Peter John, Gretchen on their first day of school.|
|Peter John advanced to Level II in School of Choice (our homeschool Co-op that meets twice a week).|
|Gretchen's in Sixth Grade and Level II at School of Choice|
|Elizabeth is the big Second Grader in Level I at School of Choice|
The rest of the kids have begun Second Grade, Fourth Grade, and Sixth Grade. They are working hard in homeschool, and I have relaxed a bit this year teaching them. The anxiety I first had two years ago has practically disappeared. Thank you, Lord! We still depend on HIm daily, but through Christ, we have strength.
