After our long, difficult month of June, things seemed to finally settle back to our normal (if I dare use that word in relation to our life!).
The monsoon rains (finally) started, which cut the temperature considerably. While our rainfall here is below normal, rainy days and overcast skies give a welcome relief from the soaring 100+ temperatures we had been enduring for so long!
|Just a warning..a cool rain shower after soaring heat..tends to bring out the crazy in some....:-)|
And...because summer is officially over here, that means it's time to start school! This may seem strange to my American friends who are still in the middle of their summer, but our school year runs from July to late March or early April We are in the second week of school, and almost back into the swing of things. I don't know about any other homeschoolers, but for us, it takes a couple weeks to get our school schedule synched with our already busy ministry schedule. So here are some pictures of my students!
|Alyssa - 10th|
|Naomi - 9th|
|Melody - 7th|
|Ethan - 5th|
And...last but not least, Kara started kindergarten this year! It doesn't seem possible, but here we are! She is doing great, and flying through her work. She loves school, and usually begs for more work (I wonder how long that will last :-))
