Just a quick post before bed. I have a big day of planning and organizing tomorrow, and since Jay will be home, I hope to really take advantage of the help!
School has been a bit crazy the past few months for obvious reasons. We were already a bit behind before the accident, and with Fulton's burn happening soon after Christmas, we were not in full school mode anyway. Since returning, things have not gotten much better, as I am notoriously horrible at prioritizing my time.
So here we are, the ides of June, and only one semester into last year's school year! The children have since restarted their math lessons, which is good, but now I need to integrate more classes each day. Praise God, Ryan finished up the last of his classes before flying off to Arizona to jump out of airplanes and train for deep water rescue (be still my pounding heart!) but there are other Poppe children who still need a lot of help. Jay has been blessed with the opportunity to change his work schedule around - at least for the time being - to help take care of Fulton's morning and evening care. His head continues to make progress, though the healing is slow. There will be multiple trips back to Galveston this summer and fall, each requiring one or both of us to be away, so if anyone has any tips on how to get this done, I'm all ears!
We use Mother of Divine Grace curriculum and have enrolled the children so I have more accountability and the children will have official transcripts when they graduate. I am so happy we decided to enroll! My family counselor has done so much to pull me out of panic mode and keep me from despair, and offers me realistic solutions to schooling problems as they come up. If for no other reason, I highly recommend MODG for the support they offer! While signing them up for classes will probably be far beyond our budget this year, at least I know I can call my counselor when I get stuck.
My plan of attack is to get the children through Week 24 by the end of the summer. I have some learning hurdles to overcome this year as well as time issues, so once again the Poppe family could use a few prayers. I know you all are very practiced at that by now! :)
I know that through Him all things are possible - I just can't wait to see how this is all going to work out! I am always ready for miracles!
