We passed inspection!

No, not home inspection, although Scott probably thought that was what we were trying to pass with all the cleaning I was doing and wanting him to do.  We passed the Education Welfare Board interview with the very nice Sarah who assessed us on our ability to home school our children.  It turned out to be easy peasy, lemon squeezy.  (And yes I do know that peasy and squeezy are not actual words.)  We did find out that if we wanted the kids to attempt the Irish leaving certificate through the school system, that home school is not an exemption for knowing Gaelic.  Clearly, we won't be teaching them Gaelic so now our options for a high school diploma have been narrowed down to exclude taking the Irish exams through the school system. 

On another note, the Ellis family will be adding another person to their family tomorrow when Jess marries Rob.  Be praying for a great day and a wonderful marriage.  Congrats!
