My good friends and fellow homeschoolers will tell you all that I looked pretty tired and haggard those months. I was a bit flighty due to sleeplessness and sometimes forgot what I was talking about mid-story. LOL But that's over; No more SS friend making for this chick.
I was, however, very excited to put my management skills back to work. It's been quite a while since I've been able to work and I have to say, it feels good to know that I'm still good at it. I have to think of something positive from this experience so I'll take that one. :o) My life is very good. I am blessed beyond measure and my focus will be on that. I've spent a day bawling and another sniffling. I learned a few years ago that life is too short for dwelling on the people who do not care for me or my family. If everybody lived through it, hopefully what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. On we go! :o)
What I will be doing now is sleep at night, blog whenever I dog-gone please and focus on my boys. This little family of ours, 7 strong, is a happy one, so it's time to get back to what I do best. I'm a wife and mother before anything but God, so here I am getting ready for August, when more fun with our schooling will begin.
This year we are going to start Kindergarten with the Daxx and Kole. Brise and Vinze will be having fun with The Dangerous Book for Boys. We will build on the chapters to bring in more writing and math. Kazz begins his second year of college. He turns 16 tomorrow. What a jump he's getting in life.
Today Brian and I went out to buy school supplies for Brise and Vinze. They get tool boxes for school boxes this year. They get to put their gear in it.
Needless to say they were pretty excited. Vinze wanted to take a picture for mom's blog. That made my day. What better way to get back to life before I began this crazy working thing. My sons, this blogs purpose and a smile. I just can't believe my life. :o)
