God had other plans though. We really want to pay off some debt along with preparing for the adoption costs and despite my efforts, I couldn't come up with a better idea so... YEP... I've gone back to work. In the future I can hopefully, again, be a house wife, but for now we had to make the tough choice.
I called my boss and asked her if she needed anyone during the daytime to work. She was so excited. She said it was a miracle that I was asking because they really needed someone and she would love to have me. That means we would have to put the kids in public school (yikes!). I have always homeschooled them. So, we asked the kids what they thought and they said no way! We continued to talk about it a lot more and somewhere along the way God did an amazing work in their little hearts and in mine too. Within just a few days we were all excited about the change. ONLY God could have done that in our hearts!
Scott and I walked them into their classrooms together and met their teachers. They are both very sweet. In fact, Silas's teacher is a friend of ours from church and was in our community group for awhile. That was a nice suprise.
They started school on Tuesday this week and I started work on Wednesday. We are all tired from the change in schedule, but we had a great week. I love my job and the kids love school. In fact, Sophia is at a birthday party now with all her new school friends and was greeted at the door with hugs from four of the girls in her class. Praise God for that. Our children adjust to change so well. When we moved here to OK from TN they never skipped a beat and now it seems the same. Silas loves his class too and his teacher. He was tested this week and is one of the top in his class. That doesn't surprise me at all. He could probably do just fine in 1st grade, but I want to keep him with his age group. I will just have to challenge him more at home. I didn't realize how much "busy work" they give them in public school. It is crazy how many papers Silas brought home in the four days he went this week and to me it all seems like preschool work. So, it will be a challenge to keep him from getting bored. Sophia's class seems to be right on track for her. She is doing great in her class and participating a lot already.
Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know what the Kingsbury's have been up to in the last week. Crazy change around her, but God is in control!!!!!!!! I prayed at the beginning of the week that God would take care of every little detail so that I wouldn't have to worry about them. And He did more that I could have ever done on my own. It really is amazing how faithful God is in every situation when you give Him control. Thank you Lord for Your Peace!
