The public school here has been in session since the 5th, and every day I am thankful for the Lord placing homeschooling on my heart.
I’d love to say each day is a picnic on the beach (one where sand doesn’t get all up in your potato salad), but really, what part of life ever is? Miss K and I are finding our rhythm and learning how to learn together. This is made a little complicated by the now walking and getting into even more mischief, Mr. D.
The Mister has been away at another school for the Marine Corps, and our little family has felt a little smaller without his larger-than-life presence.
While we deal with the responsibilities of daily life, as well as the new found availability of snuggles in our home, we have the Lord to thank for all these blessings.
Every night my heart grows a little happier as I listen to Miss K saying her prayers. She always prays for her daddy and that he will do well on his tests and will stay safe while he is gone.
We are all growing in our prayer life, and when we say grace we have started adding one thing each we are personally thankful for. Little things like being thankful for the sunshine, or being thankful for the game we got to play.
So, while we are always growing and changing, and with those things often come discomfort, we are grateful for the new closeness and love that is flourishing within the walls of our home.
May you and yours be blessed,
