Exciting update!

Hello ladies, remember my post about the class on "Education for the Citizenship" ? I have a good update to share with you about it.
We have been trying to meet with the director of the school even since I wrote this post to find out what to do. Finally today Matthew found him (he has had meetings out of the school all week). He told him that many parents have come to him with the same concern. See, being in the south, and because we live in a small town outside Granada, most people are catholics and are moraly against this class just as we are. Kayla tells me that her and another girl, are the only two that do not go to religion class (they teach catholism). She is in a class of 25. Not good for our church but good for this case :).
He told me the law is out but the school is taking it slowly (elections are in 2 years and if the other political party comes out -more conservative one- they promised to take this class out). Next year they will start in 5 grade and then every year they will come down and add one grade until they get to 1st. That means that we should have 2 years before we deal with it (right on time for furlough), or at least we have next year for sure (in case they can hold it longer). We see once again God's hand on that. We know not all schools are doing the same. The girls getting to this school is probably going to give us some extra time. We have seen God protect the girls so much this last couple of years. He is so good to us.
Thank you so much for your prayers, I appreciate it more than you know it.

Praising the Lord with you for this great news!

Yes, we did find a school for the girls, but they cannot enroll until next school year. It is a small school of only 30 students. They use the Landmark curriculum and do not take students in the middle of the school year. In the meantime they are enrolled in the local public school just to finish out this year. It was a tough decision, but financially it was the decision we had to make for this year. I had many sleepless night over what to do. Aaron did not. He said it was the right thing to do for this year. I followed his lead. I just keep telling myself it is only 3 and 1/2 months. Next year they will Lord willing be attending Grace Baptist Academy. If something happens and we can't, I will definately be homeschooling next year. I am so thankful for all of the information that your aunt/cousin (can't remember the relation exactly) helped me with. I feel more than ready to homeschool if necessary!!

Praise the Lord for this new info. We can rest a little bit but we will keep praying too that the new government will do away with this aweful class! When do they vote on a new president here in Spain?
