So it was my birthday week this past week. What a year! On my 30th birthday, I was still wondering if we would ever have kids. Mid-thirties, this blog was born and shortly after so was baby #3. And now late-ish (lol) thirties I am homeschooling, enjoying this blog (a little more consistently) and learning even more about myself through Jesus every day. This is how the journey started and what I would like to share with you here.
This is it. The post I’ve been avoiding for over a year now. The school discussion. Despite being confident we are doing what God has called us to do, I have not always felt 100% comfortable in sharing that we.......homeschool. Warning, long post ahead. It’s kinda like therapy for me. ;)
We are only two months in, but 2019 has come in with a bang for our family. Getting back into a routine has been difficult, but somehow, some way a meal plan was made on Sunday and so far it has been followed.....for the most part.
Here we go again, trust issues seem to creep up when you least expect them. At least they do for me. It can be quite unsettling to have the realization that all those unresolved feelings are really an issue with trust. And for me, it’s been my trust in God. As I look back at previous posts, apparently this isn’t new for me.
Food allergies is a topic that is always a little controversial, even in like-minded circles sometimes. Everyone has an opinion and their doctor (or doctors) has an opinion. There are those people that do not even believe food allergies exist and then there are those that may choose to eliminate a food from their diet because it's "trendy" or the "thing to do" right now. Both of these groups are extreme and not ones I would personally take advice from. Everyone's body is unique and responds to foods differently. It's a fairly long post today, documenting our allergy story.
Do your kids trust you to feed them, clothe them and give them shelter? It certainly doesn’t seem as though they always trust us when we are trying to keep them from harm though. It can be quite frustrating. Thankful God is patient when my trust has not always been there. Even though I know it should.
Those Monday mornings when you wake up and just want to stay in bed.....that would be the start of this week. The crankiness, the exhaustion, the lack of motivation, and that was just from me - not even touching the kids’ attitudes. Enter faith, community and a whole lot of Jesus.
So how many different potty training sites, books, opinions can there possibly be on potty training?? They are everywhere. First of all, this is not one of them. This is a story about an unexpected potty training bonus to a new routine in an attempt to ease nap time.
Please check back often as I am adding or modifying pages as time permits.
Scripture/Quote of the Week:
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
