Whatcha Worryin' About Anyway
So, this was the week I had put aside to review the school year and prepare for achievement tests. I, of course, am the only one in the household nervous about this. Not one single child has the decency to be concerned! All three kids will be going to school next week in order to take the SAT. Our private, Christian school has very kindly let us do that a couple times now. Every year, I am a nervous wreck (in a joyful kind of way, of course) and pack as much review into the week as I can. I go to BAM (Books a Million) and buy the practice test books for their respective grades and we go through the whole thing. I am able to see areas they are weaker in and the ones they are excelling in. Of course, all this ever really tells me is what I already knew about each child. One struggles with math and spelling, another struggles with parts of speech, etc. When you are a homeschooling mom, you tend to know these things pretty easily. And with just a week, there isn't much time to do anything about the weaker areas anyway. So, I must just leave it to the Lord, knowing that I have done my best and it's too late to fret now. If I was going to fret, I should have done it much, much sooner! :) I will feel so much better Monday when I know there is nothing else I can do. I will get up early, drive them to school (good practice for next year), pray for them on the way, drop them off, and leave it all in God's hands. Which is exactly what I should be doing at this moment--leaving it in God's hands, I mean!

They'll do great!
Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
