So today has been a crazy day so far. My oldest & youngest child were up before the sun and then the middle child woke up shortly therafter. Needless to say that it didn't work to well with the fact that I hadn't gotten much sleep. So today is a day off of school for us. But I know that it will be ok. This is one of the blessings of Homeschooling. We can take off days to enjoy life & each other. Sometimes we get so overwhelmed with doing things that we forget what is really important. God & Family. We will take this day to thank God for the blessings in our lives & enjoy each other. Thank you God for each new day.

It is amazing how much just a little time off can help you refocus your homeschool. These past 2 days have been great as I have listened to speakers at the Schoolhouse Expo online. I don't have to leave my house or find someone to watch the kids. The speakers have been very informative and in a lot of ways very uplifting. I have especially enjoyed the Devotion period in the expo. It has been a great refresher and has helped me think about my own relationship with God. Sometimes I get so caught up with everything else that I forget to put Him first. If I put Him first in everything that my day would probably go smoother and I might not get flustered so easily. It might also help me realized that my kids are just that, kids. I can't expect perfection from them when they are just learning. Sometimes I forget that fact. I am not perfect. I can only be what God wants me to be and right now He wants me to put him first and then He will give me the strength to deal with things on a day to day basis. Thank you God for your Mercy & Grace!
