I'm here, really....and smiling
Thursday, September 01, 2011
I've been so busy lately. Schooling all six children with two different curriculi is tough for me this year. I know that I just need to find my groove. I know that I love homeschooling them (and I think they enjoy it, too). I know I love seeing them grow. And so I press on...trying to keep that smile going all the way. I try to laugh instead of cry, give hugs instead of that stern look at times, I count my blessings instead of complain about what's not going right!
I am thankful that I was able to get a walk in yesterday with Rebekah, and boy, it felt good to get out and just do that. Hope to do it again tomorrow.
My garden is nearing the end of its growing season. The canteloupe are coming in...we've had two so far, small but oh so good. My tomatoes are starting to ripen and I'm not sure I'm going to have time to can like I planned. Well, that just means others will be on the receiving end of the extras.
The older three are still playing ball. Rebekah is playind double headers on Saturdays and Sundays and the boys have their football games on Sunday. Thankfully, my dh helps with football practice, it helps that he's assistant coach.
Life is good, no matter what, there are always blessings to count!!! Take time to make a list and thank God for them (especially if you're going through a difficult time right now)! Love you guys! I'll check in when I can.
