Blessings Times Two (maybe even Three)!!!

Oh my goodness! I just don't know what to say, except... Praise God! I just can't believe it! (My friend Lisa is smiling as she reads this thinking, "I knew it! I just knew it!)

I spoke to the Principal of First Baptist Academy today (the wonderful school that GameMaster will be going to next year). I had misunderstood what the Board of Directors at the school had offered to me!! The dollar amount that she had quoted me was for ALL THREE of my children to attend their school (not JUST GameMaster)!!! (Are you believing this?!?) They have never done this before, but after reading my letter to the board, and praying about my children, they want all three of them to attend their school - all for a low tuition of just one of them! I'm so freaked out!!

Now, the reason why it may be for only two of them. I've been meeting this year with Princess' teacher and we believe that she could have some special needs. She has been behind all year in kindergarten (she was last year in pre-school as well). It could be that she needs some special help, or it could be she needs to be held back a year. We just aren't sure yet. I'm to meet with her next week to see where she is at now. FBA doesn't accept any special needs children. This is why she may not be able to attend there.

But for now - I've got GameMaster and CandyMan signed up for testing later this month and they will be attending a private Christian school next year!! (Who would've thunk it!??)

(Can you tell I'm excited??) Thank you, God!!

That is soo wonderful! Praise the Lord! I am a member of that church that started FBA-my husband and I would love to send our "future" children there-we don't have any kids yet:) They teach a completely biblical world view-including creation evangelism. I do have two nephews that go there, and a third that's not quite old enough yet. Thanks also for your post on my blog:):)Blessings to you,

Whooo Hooo!!!! If it wouldn't get me in trouble here at the hospital, I would yell out loud!

I am SO, SO excited for you, dear friend.

I actually know the benefits of holding a child back, as that is what we did with JD Green. He is doing much better than he would have if we'd moved him on ahead too soon.

I'll definitely be praying for your meeting with Princess's teacher and the ultimate decision you will have to make where she's concerned.

Praise the Lord for all He is doing and will continue to do on behalf of your precious family!!

Love you!
