School in Penang

As most people know, I love the schools in Liberty Hill.  The teachers, staff, administration are all wonderful.  My kids were blessed with the most amazing teachers each year they were in Liberty Hill.  I thought my kids would start kindergarten in Liberty Hill and then graduate from high school there.  Well, obviously God had different plans for all of us. 
However, God definitely blessed our obedience for moving here to Penang with another amazing school.  The school is an American, Christian school.  So, as you can guess all the teachers, staff, and administration are Christians.  Now, not all the students and parents are Christians, but the atmosphere at the school is very loving and warm.  It was a little strange to think that the school is for 3 year olds up to 12th graders, but it works beautifully.  My kids love getting to see some middle school and high school kids that they know and saying hello. Cara also likes that she gets to have lunch with Cade and some days she chooses to sit next to him at lunch.  Luckily, he hasn't complained about this, yet.  They were even playing American football together at recess one day because they have recess at the same time, too. 
The classrooms do look different since there are I believe 30 different nationalities represented at the school.  I think it is great that my kids are getting to meet people from so many other parts of the world.  Can't wait to see how God uses this later in their lives. 
I have of course found a way to get involved.  I am a lunch "mum" once a week so I get to go help out with lunch and recess with the elementary kids.  I get there early to get the silverware and napkins ready so I get to see the high school kids come in and they are very respectful and polite.  There is also a group that meets to pray each week.  Unfortunately, I had something else scheduled the past two weeks, but I have it on my calendar now and hope to be able to join them each week. 
We are very blessed by the schools our kids have attended so far.  Just a big reminder that God is in control and that I can trust Him with all the details.
