School Shopping

Now that might sound like shopping for clothes, but we were actually looking at schools. With the new job and the move into Pekin, we as a family are looking at school options for Emily. This afternoon we visited Faith Baptist School here in Pekin. http://www.faithchristianofpekin.org/ It is a K-12 school located on Koch St. They have very high academic standards and teaching about the faith is a major part of the day. There are some differences from what Emily is used to. There is a strict dress code. Modesty is definitely the policy. There is a fine line between high standards and being legalistic. I don't want Emily to grow up thinking there are rules to follow to be one of God's children. However, having high clothing standards can make school a very safe place to be.
Please pray for us as we decide where our school will be next year. Thanks!
