Day 15: FrIdAyS
Today I am thankful for Fridays!!!!!! Even though I do not work outside of our home I look forward to Fridays….I home school our children….
I know I may offend someone, but there are days when I wish I could send my kids to school and get something done around here!!! There are days when I do not want to be their teacher. There are days, sometimes weeks, when I feel like I’ve made a complete mess of their education, and I need a weekend just to regroup. But then, there are days when I hear my (almost ADHD) youngest son read words out of the Bible that I thought he would not be able to. Or days when my daughter has finished memorizing a long poem that is 12 sections. Or days when my oldest son spouts out strange scientific facts that he has stored in his brain just because he has read them in his science textbook. Those days make me so thankful that I do get to be a home schooling mom.
So Fridays are wonderful, and I desperately need them. I know I have two whole days coming up to get myself together and do better by Monday!! =)
PS……After I wrote this I saw the news of this awful shooting in Connecticut…..As I hurt for these families and pray for grace and peace for them, I am so very thankful that my kids were with me today!!!! We home school, so they are with me all day! I know anything can happen anywhere, but I know where my kids are at all times and it is one less thing to worry about!!!!
