Today we got a late start on school. I know that surprises those of you who know me as you know I am always on top of things. Yeah, right. I seem to never get started with school on time anymore. But I will say that since we have changed a few things in our curriculum we have been having a lot more fun. We recently started the study of Anne Frank and the Holocaust. It is certainly an eye opening study. It also makes me remember just how much I enjoyed taking German in high school. It has also made the girls want to study German as well. The only problem is that the person who tutored me years ago lives well over an hour away. The good thing is she will help for free. Something to maybe think about in the time to come.
I am also happy to say that I feel the Lord working in my life once again. Not that he ever stopped. I have been blessed to meet via the internet two homeschooling families in our area. And to top it off they both go to the same church. I am looking forward to getting together with these families to draw strength and support. One of the families even has girls around the ages of ours. So cool.
I have been so busy with daily life that I have not had time to work on my blog much, or even write in my journal. I miss doing both of them. They help to give me a sense of sanity. I feel like I can just be myself when I am writing. My family loves to read my journal and see what kind of thoughts run through my mind. They find it very interesting. I find it as a way of release. When I have had a rough day and the girls just don’t want to be the picture of perfection that I think they should be (nice way to say they just don’t listen) I go to my journal or blog and spill my thoughts out on paper (or keyboard in this instance) and then I have something to reflect back on to see where I could have possibly done something different. I will say this, we do have good girls. I just don’t tell them that too much or they will think they are special or something like that.
Right now as I sit here relaxing the girls are having lunch and Trixie Belle is on the chaise keeping me company. I believe she thinks she is a baby. She has to be rocked at around 2 PM for her afternoon nap and she loves being carried around in her blankies. The girls have even taught her to drink from a bottle. Sad. But I have to say that it is cute. I even bought a baby scrap book this past week on clearance at Target so I could make one of her. They even had the cutest puppy stickers. Now I just have to find the time to get started on it.
Do you have something that you need to do that you have been putting off?
