This School Year

I don't know if you've noticed but things have gotten kind of slow around here lately...with school just around the corner I know it will be harder than ever to keep writing faithfully, so before we let it slow down, I have a question for you...what are you most looking forward to you this school year? How do you want to grow this year? What specific areas can we pray for each other this coming school year as some of us face the new and unknown? Lets try to be faithful to pray for one another and to update as much as we can. I pray this school year will grow us all towards a better understanding of the Gospel and to a closer relationship with God and parents!!

Hey, I just read over your post, and while I don't have much time right now, I figured I could answer at least one of the questions before I hit the sack.

"What are you most looking forward to this school year?"

College. Absolutely the number one thing I'm looking forward to. I love CPCC, and I'm still going to be able to work 4 days a week. I'm taking 3 classes, plus homeschool classes, plus work. Besides all that, I'm going to be playing sports and squeezing in the remaining time hanging with my friends.

In other words, my school year is going to be packed full with stuff. Which is awesome.

haha, I know the feeling Mark, I'll be taking four classes and working about 5 days a week. I think the thing I'm looking forward to most is M28...I'm excited to be apart of it!

Melly Rose said...

I'm also looking forward to CPCC. I was only able to get into one class, but it's exciting for me!
Also, this will be my last year in highschool, so this school year is definitely a biggie.
Quest222 this year should be awesome: new schedule and new activities.


Mark said...

Oh yeah, I had forgotten about the whole new Quest222.

By the way, I second what Melly said; I'm so looking forward to being done with highschool.

What are you most looking forward to this school year? Hmm... CPCC, or having Geometry (math with words!) and Biology (science with words!) in the same year...
How do you want to grow? In having a balanced, "big view" of God - and I'm doing a Bible study I'm really excited about that I hope will help (the study would probably be the most accurate answer to the first question).
Pray? Um, nothing specific with school... though that means I have more trouble getting in contact with people I'm trying to reach out to, so maybe you could pray for that. Thanks!

Cara said...

P.S. I hope to post what I hope to learn :-) about God - kind of like Melly was thinking, though probably once every week or two. First I have to finish reading through the Bible though, so I'm planning on beginning in early September.

"what are you most looking forward to you this school year?"

hm....this is hard. I'm looking forward to a lot of things. Probably just getting back into the routine of school, lol! And I'm looking forward to Q222 as well!

"How do you want to grow this year? What specific areas can we pray for each other this coming school year as some of us face the new and unknown?"

I would like to work on being more motivated with my school work. And having more determination with school. Last year I was constantly behind because I kept pushing things off and such. So I would like to try my best to avoid doing that this year.

hmm...this is hard. I don't really have much to look forward to.
I definitely do have things to work on though. like Emily, I need to work on not pushing things aside. I also need to work on ignoring distractions and not taking all day to finish my work.
