I feel like I should post something profound about what I want my blog to be all about here, but I'm not feeling a bit profound at the moment, so I'll just make a list of random thoughts for the day:
I don't love the actual day to day of homeschooling. That's okay. It's still my calling. I will do it with joy because the Lord called me to teach my kids.
I read a quote the other day that Drew Barrymore said. Something about how she felt the most beautiful right after she has worked out, when her face is 3 different colors, she is sweaty, and gasping, because she knows she just did something to help her body be beautiful and healthy. Something to remember, because I have this weird hang up about not wanting to sweat and breathe hard in front of anyone because it's not lady like. Silly me!
Tests. I have never really cared about testing my kids. I know what they know, and am blessed to live in a state that doesn't require testing. The other day I gave one of my children a placement test to see which math program to order. She panicked and missed things that I KNOW she knows. Lesson learned? Test the kids for THEM, not for me. They need to learn that testing isn't a big deal. Next year will be a bit different around here, for sure.
Who decided that women are more beautiful with shaved legs? I wanna talk to him...
Here it is, the middle of May and we don't have our garden in yet. We are getting a load of Llama manure this weekend, so next week it will be done. I'm glad we have a loooong growing season.
Yesterday I met a charismatic Catholic. I never heard of such a thing. I tell ya, the more I learn the less I know.
