The kids are actually really excited about starting up again.
We have plugged in to our community quite nicely. My son joined up with a great Youth Group and my daughter started GEMS ( Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior).
I also joined a Home School group, to take advantage of some neat field trips and connections.
We are feeling the full benefits of God's gift. It is truly a blessing that we are here. It's almost like starting over fresh. We thank God for this wonderful opportunity.
