Day 65

We were able to get some schooling in.
Caleb, working on dictation.

 Our James study.
 I really don't know where I'm going with this "Creative" Math. Today we worked with our 'gems' and figured out different ways to come up with the number 48 using all four operations. I know this is easy but we are just having fun with it right now. We'll continue through this month and go from there. If it doesn't work out, then we can always continue with our math books.

 Our gnome family.


  1. I'd miss you :( BTW, I just purchased Accountable Kids and listed your name as where I heard it from. Blessings.

  2. I'd miss you, too! I think we all have ups and downs and that is the beauty of sharing our hearts. We can feel inspired and encouraged from each other. I do understand, though.

  3. I think I'm just going through a weird time. Nothing major but just not sure what to do about a few schooling things.
    Thanks ladies for your kind words =)

  4. Linda, it would make me so sad, but I'd respect your wishes. I hope we could continue emailing. I understand though, maybe what you just need is a bloggy break. Homeschooling is tough, and there's so much to sort out. You wouldn't believe the range of emotions that I go through, especially with two highschool graduates that are not sure about college, and sort of stuck right now. It makes me feel like a total failure many times, but I know that God called me, so I press on.

    It's difficult because we feel that if the children are not thriving, it's our fault. The weight of everything they do seems to fall on our shoulders. It was so easy when my kids were in public school for me to say the school messed them up, but now I feel like all eyes, especially my family's, are on me so the pressure mounts.

    I cry a lot sometimes because homeschooling can also be lonely. It's not the easy road, that's for sure, it's the road less traveled. It takes everything in me, especially with the onslought of the health issues, to keep pressing forward.

    Whatever you decide, I will understand and miss you greatly. I feel your inner pain, Linda. I want you to know that it is normal to go through that range of emotions and that there is a season for everything under the sun and this may just be a different season for you.

    So much love in Christ,


  5. ps Caleb's handwriting is so nice and neat, and the math looks like a really fun addition, sort of reminds me of Miquon.

  6. Dee, thank you for your words of wisdom. I'm thankful I am not alone in this wonderful, homeschooling adventure. I really do enjoy it, but at times it could be overwhelming.
