The past two days I have received the bulk of my school curriculum. I am so excited. There is only one part left to come, but I can't wait now to get started schooling my kids. This looked like some fun things when I was reading about them on the computer, but now having them in my hands seems to be even more exciting to me. Even my husband took interest in it and was becoming more excited the more I was talking and getting excited. Wow! I still have much to do to get ready for school to start, but I can't wait now. It makes me want to go out and buy school supplies and stuff just because. I was talking to a friend of my husbands last night on the phone and they have home schooled for many years. She was giving me some pointers and one of them was on the first day of school only do a half load to ease your way into school. The other thing she has started is buying herself a bouquet of flowers and a card. She has all her kids sign the cards and put them on the kitchen table for everyone to enjoy. She said it was hard for her to hear her friends talk about getting together after the kids went to school on the first day so she started treating herself to flowers to brighten her first day of teaching the new school year. So I think this is a tradition I am going to start also. Besides, I love fresh flowers and what a great reason to get some for my kitchen! So, in a couple of weeks my homeschooling adventure will begin, and I can't wait! Thank You Lord for putting this desire on my heart and not letting me turn away from it!
I am a princess! I have been married to the love of my life for 17 years. We have been blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am able to stay at home with them and train them in the ways of the Lord. I throw some school in there too ;) I never thought I would be where I am at today, but would not trade one moment of my life. My kids are teaching me to slow down and to enjoy the little things again. I love reading, and am learning to dance like David danced!
