The truth is, I was blessed to attend the Living Education Retreat a week and a half ago and it gave me so much to think about. In regards to homeschooling, of course, but I've also been thinking about the "why" of things. Why do I blog?, for instance. There was so much inspiration and many big ideas were shared at LER; it made me really think about the things under the surface.
There's so much noise in this world right now. Am I just adding to it? (all of these questions are rhetorical.) Do I even have anything to say? How am I growing in my faith, as a mom and wife?
Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23-24
I've been thinking about this and other things, like, why do I feel so busy? #notthefirstpersontoask
My children are small: 8, 6 and almost-3. I know that I won't have this time with them forever. So, what is most important right now?
I've decided to clear my schedule a bit, (starting in September and October) so I can focus more on my kids' education and be home in the evenings more.
I've also decided that I read blogs because I love getting a glimpse into others lives, especially those who are in the same season and who homeschool. I get ideas and inspiration from them!
I hope that's why you read here, too. I hope I never come across as knowing All The Things (I don't know how you would get that impression though, because I obviously don't! HA!) and I hope that you get a few ideas or inspiration. Or maybe you're just curious about one homeschool mom's journey. :)
I don't just want to add to the noise, but as I love reading and connecting with you, I hope you enjoy reading and connecting with me here. :) Relationships are the most important thing! First, at home, then elsewhere.
May the Lord bless you!
