Just a little update to let you know what has been going on around here.
First of all I have been staying as far away from the computer as possible. It just began to feel like it was eating up so much of my time. I was forever on it searching out things pertaining to homeschooling or reading homeschooling blogs trying to find something that would motivate me a little. Still have yet to find it. I just keep praying for the Lord to send me a friend who knows exactly what I am going through and also that the girls will find friends as well. It is so hard for the three of us to sit here and stare at each other all day.
We are also winding down on our time before Dh leaves for Iraq again. We have about four months left. I keep praying that maybe, just maybe he won’t have to go again. So that is another reason I have not had much time on the computer. We have been having so much family fun that nothing else seems important right now.
Dh is trying to teach me and the girls to play golf and boy are we a mess. I just can’t seem to get it. Dd1 is doing well and Dd2 gets it, but you just never know where my ball is going to go, if it even goes at all. Let’s just put it like this, I can probably hit my tee further than anyone, yet my ball is still in the spot where the tee was. Kind of makes you think of pulling a tablecloth off of a table and all of the dishes stay in the same spot. It’s pretty funny.
School has been going ok. Nothing to brag about. We are not doing as good as I had hoped for at this time, but that’s ok. We seem to be forever tweaking our schedules. I just need to learn to relax a little more and trust that the Lord will lead us in the right direction. I just need to listen to what He is telling me.
It is raining today. I seems like it has been forever since it has rained. I have all of the windows open and I am sitting here on the computer listening to the rain and feeling the breeze that is coming through the windows. It it wonderful. Do I really have to wake the kids?
