I went to a jewelry party yesterday. The gal selling the product was very sweet but like most people her eyes popped out of her head when she asked how many kids I have. She nearly fainted when I told her I home school all of them also. This is a reaction I have grown quite accustomed to and usually find amusing. That is unless their reaction is less than kind. (Hers was kind)
There used to be days that I would question our choice to home school our kids. Those days seemed to come less and less often as time went by.
Spending days with these kids is a gift, a gift I fear I almost completely missed out on. I may not be the worlds' most perfect teacher but when it comes down to it the love that overflows
from my heart for each of these little souls makes me the best choice.
Today I am sick as a dog. My head is pounding, my throat is raw and I wish I could crack open my skull to scratch the itch in my ears. The kids got the basics of their education today and three squares with a snack thrown in. This is a great accomplishment in my book.
We even got a few chores done. The greatest accomplishment for me though was hearing my kids play together and cheer each other on while playing a much earned game of x-box.
To God I send a giant Thank You for the blessings of my six little sweet peas.
