A New One Begins

April 12, 2010

I decided to name our blog And Then There Were Three because we are at a new phase in our lives.  Our oldest child has left for college and now our youngest (and last) child is the only one home full time.  It is a change of time for us and a change in homeschooling for us.  We homeschooled our son all the way through and now our daughter will be beginning high school in the fall.  I can’t believe the years have flown so fast, but I’m thanking God for the friend my daughter is becoming and the chance to learn with her.

Now, lest this sound wrong, we haven’t booted out our son.  He’s here and there all at the same time and seems more mature every time he comes home.  I do promise there will be posts about him, because in my heart we’ll never be just three.  Just in my day to day reality for now.
