In between knitting, getting us all settled in Virginia, and growing a new baby, I have managed to keep on top of home schooling Jack, Emily and Molly. Some days I do a better job than others. But I try my best most everyday and worry about what I am NOT doing the other half of the days.
I am constantly praying that I am doing the right thing for all of us. Some days it all feels so right and other days it feels so...HARD!! Emily is in 5th grade and is now 10. She is a good student and a HUGE help to me with everything this family does. Molly is in 3rd grade and follows Emily's example of being a good student. I am super grateful for the work they put in and I know it could be a lot harder if it were not for there willingness to do good in school.
And then there is my Jack. My boy. My boy who is very different than my girls. He makes me run through every emotion possible when we are doing his lessons. At one moment I want to squeeze him because he is so stinkin' cute...and moments later I want to ring his neck because sometimes the lights are on and NOBODY SEEMS TO BE HOME. But overall this year is about me doing something everyday with him to get him reading and he is on lesson 70 of his 100 easy lessons and so far so good. He is doing a great job...just his own style and pacing...not his sisters'.
Blogging and photography has been a bit weak over the last few months. I enjoy this space so much and want to be better about adding more things. I love that people read this blog and I cherish each comment people leave.
I may never write a book , or change your life by what I share here....but I have fun sharing and I love that you are here!!
p.s I am not sure if that is EXACTLY what I would have written in a Christmas letter....but you get the point...life is hard, full and ever changing and that is exactly what I hope to share!
