Sleep is important! More important then a schedule. We had a late night and sleep in some. I should have let Megan sleep in more. We ended up with a few tears. (Hers not mine this time. *smile*) Only because my girl was tired. Lesson learned!!
You have to stick with your own convictions. When speaking with those who don't get homeschooling or even those super homeschoolers it's best to give short answers, smile and agree to disagree. The plan for my family may not be what you'd do, but the beauty is we can each do what we think is best.
This, this post right here really spoke to me. I've always felt tremendous pressure to be more, to do more and this post made me realize that the life I live is perfectly fine. It made me cry and realize that maybe I am doing exactly what God always planned for me.
I am having one of those moments where I am emotionally spent. The truck is broken, the lawn tractor died and I am having a health issue (nothing life threatening). I keep giving myself the pep talk to be grateful we have the van for Chuck to drive to work, be grateful that we have a push mower for the lawn and to be grateful that my health isn't worse.
We tried to buy a new lawn tractor. Inventory is low so it isn't a good time. Let's just say it was a disaster. I returned it yesterday and almost cried when leaving Home Depot. My guy came home I fell into his arms and all was right with me again. Life can be hard. Honestly we were never promised easy, but I know it will all work out. I have been praying for God to help me to trust and have faith.
I have joined instagram; wendib_well My account is private so you'll have to send me a request to follow along.
We have a jammed packed weekend planned. Friday we are going to the fair, Saturday we have people coming over to help cut down a tree and Sunday is our day of rest. After school I have to whip my home into shape and then do some grocery shopping for lunch on Saturday. You can't expect six men to work without feeding them. *smile* See you next week!
May your day be filled with joy in the journey!
