This is a first in a LONG time. A weekly report from Koinonia Academy has not happened since... well last year! *Ü* In fact, Nov 17th was our last! Yikes! It said week 13. Honest, I looked it up!
I hope you all have had a blessed Christmas break! I'm excited to get into the groove of things and fellowship with my weekly reporter peeps!
So with that out in the open, here we are I guess at week 14! 14 down, 22 to go.
This has been a strange and challenging week. Normally just regular routines can be a challenge, but this week was not routine.
Monday, was actually a good day. No one got up on time, school took longer than normal... but it was not stressful in anyway.
Tuesday~ Now this was a great day! Look what we woke up too! More snow!
We also went and spent most of the day in Seattle.
We first hit West lake Center Mall and rode the monorail to the city center.
We took a short walk to the Seattle Children's theater to see The Never Ending Story. This was my husbands first play with us, and he really enjoyed it. In fact he wants to go see Hamlet next month with us.
Next.... the Seattle science center for some relaxing educational fun and kill time!
After all that we were all starving! So we took another short walk to a favorite burger and fry restaurant close by Key arena called Dicks drive in.
It was time to start our journey back to the ferry, so we took a bus to Pike place market for some fresh mini doughnuts and coffee as we walked to the ferry.
See, it was a good day!
Then Wednesday... this day... well it was eventful. School went well, we completed History, literature, math, science, grammar reviewed, Spanish.... accomplished chores... oldest 2 went to youth group. It began to snow just after 9:00 pm so I called my son to hurry him home, and said drive slow. 9:50 I got a call form my son, a bit panicked saying they got in a car accident and totaled his truck. long story short, that is what happened. He slid right into the back of someone. Everyone is fine, but they all had sore backs and necks. Shawn and Christina both have hurting hips too. We are so grateful it wasn't any worse, but it was absolutely horrible having to drive so incredibly slow in the snow to go get them.
Thursday No school for anyone.
Friday was a half day. No one has been able to focus. Especially myself, and if I cant focus, chances are no one else does either.
Recap of week we really completed about 2 maybe 2 1/2 days worth of school our first week back. So in light of it all, we will pick up where we left off here. Next week is another week, just like today is another day!
I read these 2 scriptures this morning... they belssedme so Im sharing them with you too.
Psalm 73:26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
