I've made it!

We've officially survived our first 6 days in Tampa and things have gone well. We spent the night at our new home last night, which was wonderful! DH & I have a new mattress, and I suggest making that investment if you have an old one! Ours was about 15 years old, and a new one made a big difference on our backs!

The children seem to love school. If you have never heard of a Classical Christian school, you should look into it & see if there is one in your area. They have an amazing philosophy for educating children, and you will be AMAZED at what they learn! In third grade, the students begin Latin. Children at the grammar stage (elementary) learn facts easily. The school teaches them this way & it is amazing how they can spout off the timeline beginning with 4000 B.C.! I know I can't tell you what happened chronologically, but these students can!! We are thankful that the Lord has provided a way for our precious children to attend this sweet school.

I am off to unpack some more boxes!

Oops I wasn't finished...yes, my daughter has gotten an incredible education at her school. I can't believe the kind of stuff they learn and at such a young age! I quit being "able" to help with her homework after 2nd grade!!
