This Thankful Thursday is all about my thankfulness for God's provision for my daughter. I've already mentioned several times how much I love my daughter's high school and the way God has given us true answer to prayer where her education is concerned.
Last year when I set out to home school, I knew it was what the Lord wanted for us at the time, but I was unsure of the effects it would have if she went back the next year to formal education. Would she be on level? Would she be able to get back into the study mode? Would she pass? Many friends told me that whatever I was unable to provide for her, that God would fill in the gaps. I knew in my heart He would, but I doubted with my mind. Well, God showed me that he is all about filling in gaps, and MORE!!!
Ashley got her first progress report, and she is definitely not failing in this challenging, classical Christian school. In fact most of her grades are A's with a few B's in the subjects that I probably wouldn't even pass. Here is her freshman course list: Greek(by the way she loves this class and has a 99 right now), Ancient Literature, Ancient History, Bible Doctrine, Trivium 1(still don't fully understand what this even is, but I know it has to do with grammar and logic), Algebra 1, Biology, Drama, and Journalism.
Ashley is on a 3 day retreat right now with her classmates in the the Hill Country. Their theme this year is "Solus Christus-Christ Alone". I wish I was going! Maybe next year I can be a chaperon. Please pray for their safety and that they will have a time of growth and fellowship like they've never had before.
