What's Your SuperPower?

I thought this was cute since my three yr old tells me everyday that I am her superhero. I know it won't last forever, but I will cherish it for as long as it lasts!

Your Superpower Should Be Mind Reading

You are brilliant, insightful, and intuitive.
You understand people better than they would like to be understood.
Highly sensitive, you are good at putting together seemingly irrelevant details.
You figure out what's going on before anyone knows that anything is going on!

Why you would be a good superhero: You don't care what people think, and you'd do whatever needed to be done

Your biggest problem as a superhero: Feeling even more isolated than you do now

Family News

I'm tired. Very, very tired. I have a migraine and so much writing to do for school. It's going to have to wait another day. I was up until 3 am last night writing a paper. It's not due until Sunday but I wanted to get it done because I have an Algebra exam on Sunday. I will be so glad when I am done with all these writing intensive classes and can concentrate on my science and math.

Monica is doing well in her studies. We are concentrating on social studies this week because next week is her 5th grade social studies standardized test. She tests well and doesn't mind going into the public school for the tests. It saves me the hassle at the end of the year and I get bragging rights when she scores in the highest level. Nope, I don't mind at all.

Lucianna's second blood tests have revealed that her lead levels are coming down and her iron levels are going back up. Whew! That is a relief. This has been a very scary time for us. In the middle of this we have to change pediatricians. I just found out yesterday that our insurance company won't pay a penny of her doctor bills if I continue taking the children there because the doctor is not on the network. I won't even get started on the whole story but I will tell you that they are making an exception for the bills up til now. They admit that the way the doctors are listed on the website is somewhat confusing and they can see why I would think that he was in our plan's network. Oh give me a break.

We Found a New Church!

It has been a year long journey, well not really because I wasn't entirely diligent in my search, but we found a new church for the family. It's right in town and has a great children's program.

My daughter Monica hasn't been this excited about going to church in a LONG time. She has met other girls her age who are also homeschooled. They have invited her to be on the junior Bible Quizzing Team and she has already attended her first youth group meeting.

Alexandra loved it and already has a part in the Christmas pageant as a donkey. Awwww! It will be adorable.

I found myself in a wonderful mixed adult Sunday school class on discipleship. I was so happy to be accepted into a group that reminded me so much of a group I once led in Sunday school back in 2002 (we reluctantly moved from that area so I had to leave that church). I was absolutely floored when the leader of the group handed me the set of study books at the end of class. He told me that they were mine to keep. I looked these books up online and they cost almost $40.00. Wow! I will put the money into offering next week even though I wasn't asked to do so. I expected them to ask for money for the books. I was going to buy them regardless. This group showed me exactly what I wanted to see in a "home church" on my first visit!

Oh, I am so happy. I'm pretty sure God has led me to the church that I can be actively involved in, learn from and call Home!
