For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Happy New Year and an update

Wow, it's been a few weeks since I posted about our life here.

Well, 2011 started with us moving. In this new year, we have a new home, a new church and a new neighbourhood. Our move on the 1st went well with the help of our brethren. The kids got to stay with some friends and had a grand time. I was sick over Christmas and New Year, so I was not much help, but by the grace of God I was still able to do some of what needed to be done. The whole family actually got some cold at some point during this time period.

Now we are all moved in, mostly unpacked and settled in our new environment, and I can finally take a few minutes to post.

We started back school, after a month off, on Tuesday. The kids actually did well and were quite dilligent. Makes you wonder if long breaks do not have benefits . . .

Our schedule changed a bit as my hubby's day off is going to be Thursday now. So, instead of Monday, there won't be any school on Thursday.

Hopefully I'll be posting a bit more in the coming days. I am sorry to my blogosphere friends for the lack of comments, it's been busy. My reader is full, I am scared to even look at it. On top of this I really want to focus more on schooling (instead of reading about others schooling, which I love to do  . . .), and keeping the house in order. Hopefully I'll get to visit you still though.

In the mean time I wish you all a Happy New Year filled with God's blessings and care.

Happy New Year to you, too! I'm your newest rss feed follower! Thanks for visiting today. We started school back last week and it was a struggle (and we only took off 2.5 weeks)! We haven't had complete school this week either due to the snow storm that struck NW GA. ~ Ellen

Glad you and the family are all feeling better. Also glad that you are all moved and settled. I understand about wanting to read and visit everyone. It is so hard. However, we must concentrate on our schooling as well! Blessings!
