I am a warrior

How did it get to be September already?! *sigh* This Summer has flown by. The girls start school on Thursday the 5th. Skylar will be a Senior and Ashlyn will be in 8th grade. We are still trying to create a modified schedule for Ashlyn in hopes that she will be able to attend school this year. This is our 5th year trying and I sure hope she makes it through. At least we have some experience with this and know what works best for her if she becomes to ill to attend once again.
We are just going to have her in the 4 core subjects, math, history, science and language arts. No need to have her in electives, instead she will just go home. A bus will pick her up for school and bring her home when her day is done. We are truly blessed to have this provided for her. It will be nice to not have to take her to school every morning and then pick her up at noon each day. I hope this will not be too much for her, but we have to try and hope for the best. :)

Today, being September 1st, means that it is time for a new word on the Use Your Words challenge blog. The current word is Tough. This challenge was easy for me. Ashlyn is one of the toughest people I know. The title for the layout came from her. She calls herself a Warrior and she could not have chosen a better word to define herself.

Here is my layout:
 
Head on over the blog and check out all the fantastic layouts the design team created! You can also link up for layout using the word tough until the 14th. Hope to see you join us!
