Our homeschool plan for this school year!
How you choose to educate your children is not a salvation issue. But it is an important one.
We are halfway through our first “official” year of homeschool. I say “official” because in Indiana, children do not have to be enrolled in school until the fall of the school year in which they will turn 7, so I don’t technically have to keep records this year (although I am). We have twelve weeks… Continue reading Mid Year Thoughts from a First Year CC Mom
I thought… …that I would find more time to blog this year. (obviously, i haven’t) …that a three year old would not still have severe separation anxiety. (he does) …that my own anxiety had lessened. (it hasn’t) …that running/attempting to run would get more enjoyable. (it hasn’t) …that six months after Keith moving to nights,… Continue reading I thought…
I have writer’s block. I don’t know what to write. Somedays I think of grand ideas for posts… and then other days, I think, “Who wants to read about your boring daily life?”. So… tidbits. ***** Last week was rough, what with the death of a former student and all. She was only 12. I… Continue reading Writer’s Block
A seventh grade girl from where I taught passed away yesterday. Suddenly. No warning. She was here. Then she was gone. And while we rejoice with the confidence that she is in Heaven with Jesus right now… I can’t even imagine what her mommy must feel. I went into school today. The school where I… Continue reading I Can’t Even Imagine
Today was the last day of school for me. A parent (one who is generally rude and has raised an incredibly rude child): “So, this is your last day before maternity leave?” Me: “Yes.” Parent: “Well you look great! You’re hardly showing!” Me: “We’re adopting….remember?” Parent: “Oh.” SERIOUSLY??????????????????????????????????????????????? Anyway…I cannot accurately describe the overwhelming joy… Continue reading Apparently I LOOK Pregnant???
Seriously…these are random!! I have the urge to nest: clean & rearrange the kitchen, sterilize the bottles & nipples & pacifiers I’ve gotten, launder all the gender-neutral clothes, spend my gift cards I got at the shower. I also have the adoptive-mommy fears: if I do those things, the adoption will fail, so I may… Continue reading Today’s Random Thoughts
One of my favorite children’s books growing up was “Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day.” If you’ve never read it, hustle to the library and find it. That was today for me. Melba, unfortunately, had a worse day…please pray for her and her nephew Nick. And it’s nothing adoption related. Middle… Continue reading Children’s Book
It’s sex ed week where I teach. And it happens during my class, so I get to “monitor” six lessons every day this week about abstinence, stds, etc. This is the 7th year I’ve sat through this. Is it wrong that every time the instructor says, “You can get pregnant any time you have sex”… Continue reading Sex Ed
