We kicked off our Fall schedule the week of August 19th, with the girls and Tom starting school. We are in our sixth year of homeschooling and Tom is in his second year pursuing a Masters of Biblical Counseling, albeit one class at a time. It’s a shocking thought to think we have just five more years with Brooklyn before college.
For a number of years now we have fasted from TV the month of August. This allows us to concentrate more on each other as we play board games or play outside. We wanted August to be a month of “abiding.” We used John 15:5 as a key verse. It reads, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.”
