For the past year, Jana has enjoyed home-schooling Carter, who just turned 5 just last month. We appreciate the benefits of concentrated attention and the flexibility that this type of education style allows since we have been quite mobile in our deputation travels these last few months. Home-schooling will also be the educational system we will use when we move to our new ministry in Honduras.
Carter is developing quickly in his 'readin, riting 'n rithmatic' skills and especially in his desire to do so on his own. It is amusing to watch him attempt to read the Wall Street Journal (intense business reading with very few pictures!) or use his growing math and number recognition skills to memorize almost all of the car numbers of the NASCAR racing series. Most certainly, his learning abilities in these areas is making his father very proud!
