1. Electives have started this week and the boys were happy with their classes: Basketball and Build-it projects for the both of them as well as Finance for Zach and Chess (again) for Joho.
2. Our school is going along slowly but steadily. I am happy to report that there is progress with my middle schooler on the matter of diligence and getting his work done in a timely fashion. Still lots of maturing to do when it comes to precision and attention, but I am counting my blessings and recognize the progress. Thank you Lord!
