So...what have I been up to?? With all this free time with 4...no 3 kids in school...
Well for one I took one of the 4 out of school. My little Lucy June. A little something I may have left out of the last post that spoke of peace and assurance with my decision to send kids to public school, I was a wreck sending Lucy to school.
She is such a spark of light and not having her with me/us during the day felt very..AWFUL!!
She was not LOVING being away from home either. She would wake up and ask if she could stay home. I would want to say yes to her everyday. Pete would remind me that the time was up for Lucy to be at home unless she was HOME SCHOOLED!!! So about 9 days after she went to school, minus one that I let her stay home, I officially pulled her out of school. I. Am. Home Schooling. Again.
And Jack almost came home too. He really wanted to. But like I said my heart is not REALLY into teaching. I actually made a complete fool of myself, in this VERY small town, and pulled him out for the day and told the school I was home schooling him. And then the next day I brought him back and said...I rethought and want him to continue in his class. Ask me why I am so impulsive and I will tell you it is to keep me humble. I have been humbled this week.
And guess what ..not that I should be sharing this...but when I go to confession I ALWAYS have to ask forgiveness for passing judgement on others. I know..shocking. A women living in 2013 passing judgement...well I do. I TRY not to...but by golly sometimes my less than perfected brain goes right to..."How could they be thinking that..."
Well...I have had a SUDDEN change of heart. I guess the Lord saw fit to send me a tutorial on what it feels like to be judged...I am sure a few people scratched their head this week pondering/judging the crazy lady with 6 kids who pulled her son out of school to home school an returned him 12 hours later. That was me..judge away.
All I can say is I have new perspective on crazy...sometimes you may not mean to be..but it just seems that you are.
IN KNITTING NEWS....
I knit this scarf. Scarves are hard to knit because you have done the same thing for 45 inches and still are not done. I am done. I have worn it as much as possible and found that alpaca yarn can be scratchy. I used the Frog Tree Alpaca made in Boliva.
