I spend 24 hours a day with my sweetlings and I am supposed to know them better than I do. I am supposed to catch these things before they get out of hand, at least, so I thought.
So yesterday, I really struggled with the patience thing and thought we really had a better day today. I tried the love'em into obedience thing. It seemed to work.
Today, I struggle with not knowing my babies as well as I thought.
Just so you know, everyday is not peaches and cream in the homeschool arena. Some days do not even come close. I still wouldn't take anything, anything AT ALL for being able to do this. I completely feel like this is God's will for our lives. Even when our faith is being tested, my resolve stays the same. I'm just gonna have to pray harder and let my JOY outweigh all of the other stuff. Trust me, next time I make a statement such as my kiddos have not been sick that much since beginning homeschooling, I'm gonna knock on the old proverbial wood. Having sick and hurt babies is NO FUN! It breaks my heart when my babies do not feel good. I just want to make it all better right away.
The upside to this is, I can be here to care for them and love on them and take them to the doctor and make chicken soup and and and and...The world does not stop turning.(Yes, I know this is a run on sentence.)
