Our goal is to train up our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord, so that they come to know and trust Christ in all things, and are adequately prepared for the calling He has on their lives, and that they, in turn will pass on their faith someday to their children.
"Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will never be dismayed." Isa. 28:16
Alot has changed for us since we first created this site when our oldest was in Kindergarten. Now Eric is working for Neighborhood Christian School - where J1 & J3 are attending. Eric teaches 4th grade - J1 is in 5th grade and J3 is in Kindergarten. J2 is still homeschooling with me and we are working with an ISP called Almaden Valley Christian School in San Jose. AVCS specializes in helping parents who are homeschooling kids with special needs.
I would love to have all three boys home with me but J2 needs alot of extra attention. We are hoping that J1 and J3 might be home next year. However, in the meantime we are TOTALLY blessed to have the Christian school available to us!
