Update on Our Family

Hello Families,

One of the best parts of my job is that I get to connect with wonderful families. I love seeing your pictures, hearing about your student's milestones, and sharing with you in your hard times too. Over the years I have been privileged to connect with so many great people and hear your stories.

I wanted to update you on my family's life. On August 5 our 13 year old son told us he had a lump on his leg which led to us discovering he had Stage 4 Ewing Sarcoma. We were blown away.

He has had his second round of fourteen two-week chemo treatments (3-6 days of chemo and then we are home). There will also be radiation and surgery. We are looking at 10-15 months of treatment. Our church, friends, and family are trying to help us as we navigate this new normal.

As far as portfolios, I am still accepting them and will continue to accept them for the 2016-2017 school year. It might take me a few days longer so I appreciate your patience. My plan is to still accept portfolios for the 2017-2018 season, but I may need to make modifications to my system. I will post more details in January 2018.

If you would like to keep up with our family's news you are welcome to do so through our Caring Bridge Site.

Thank you,

Becky Boerner

My thoughts are with your family. Thank you for all of the information you have provided online, your site has helped me get started this year with my own curriculum in Ohio. I appreciate your help and guidance on this venture. I hope that everything goes well with your sons treatments. Please take care.

Please know that your family is in my thoughts and prayers as you face this. I am praying deeply for your son specifically and for the medical staff to address his care and needs, also for your husband and you for peace, comfort and strength. For your entire family to come together and lean into Him for the strength needed. In Jesus Precious Name. Amen

We will be keeping you and Jonathan and your whole family in our prayers. I have so loved getting to know you through your site and our assessments, and you've been such an inspiration to me with my own homeschooling. God bless you all! :)
