A Walk Down Memory Lane:

As 2013 comes to an end, I’ve been reminiscing about how our homeschool has grown and changed over the past 2 1/2 years.  Brendan and Ryan have learned so many new things, they have gotten much more independent with their work, and have adapted well to being taught at home.  We have taken some amazing field trips, shared the ups and downs of life, grown in our faith, memorized lots of scripture, survived some rough days, tried new foods and traditions, made new friends, and served God together.  The boys have both grown taller and stronger…especially Brendan!  My little boy is now towering over me, is almost as tall as his dad, and wears a size 11.5 shoe!!!

I’m soooo thankful that I’ve had the chance to spend every day with my boys and that we get to learn and grow together!  It is scary how QUICKLY the years are passing.  Brendan will be taking high school courses in the fall and Ryan will be stuck with have the great privilege of having me all to himself most days 🙂 .

Check out these pictures from our first month of homeschooling (August 2011):

The kids have changed so much! Ryan is now the age that Brendan was when we started. That means that in a little over 2 years, he’ll probably be taller that me too! Where does the time go??? I wonder if Mary felt the same way as she watched how quickly Jesus grew.  I’m going to try to cherish every moment that I have!

One thought on “A Walk Down Memory Lane:

  1. Oh, Amy, look how the boys have grown! And, they are growing into fine young men! You and Justin have done a wonderful job bringing your sons up in the way they should go! God has blessed you and gifted you with teaching and, of course, being a terrific “Mom” and “Dad!”

    You are right! The time will fly by! So, enjoy your time with your boys!

    Love you all,
