a sad week

Jonathan finished 1st grade yesterday. He did so well... Made high honor roll all year, all straight A's.. we are so proud of him. We love his school so much. We have been sending him to a Christian school for the past 2 years and haven't once regretted the extra money for tuition. We have been blessed more then we can ask or imagine with the teachers he's had the past 2 years, for Kindergarten and 1st grade.

We found out 2 weeks ago that his school is closing. :( We're so heartbroken. We trust that God knows the future. We know that He is the author of our lives. And we believe that He loves Jonathan more then even we do. We are uncertain about what to do, and right now our immediate future is unsettled for our little guy.

Yesterday was a hard day, saying goodbye to friends and teachers and people we've come to love. Sometimes life really stinks. But we're trying to remember that He is in control. And He loves us. And it's all going to be ok. I will update when we find a school for Jonathan. In the meantime I'd appreciate your thoughts and prayers.

Yuck. Ivy doesn't start until next year and I've already been interviewing schools. I have one that is strongly in front of the others. If it were to close before she even got there, I would be so upset.
Wherever he goes, he'll do great. He's a great kid.

I'm so sorry to hear about this. I hope you find a place that you feel comfortable with----I never knew how hard it would be to find a place where you really feel like it's a good fit. Let us know how your search goes.
