Well, it's here what can I say?

Well it's's over. I'm 40. Yikes! Still can't believe it. I thought you stayed in your 30's forever! Not true, I've discovered. So far can't tell too much difference between 30 and 40. Still have to cook (yuck), still have to do laundry (the laundry fairy still hasn't found my house), still have to clean the house (my kids haven't become neat freaks all of the sudden); yep, it's still the same so far. I'll let you know how it goes...

it's been three years, really??

I can hardly believe it's been 3 years since we first became a home schooling family. I never started out with a desire to homeschool. It was never something I thought I would do. We took our first born to kindergarten just like everyone else. She did well there. We took our second born to kindergarten just like everyone else. He did well there also.

I know exactly the day and time that God first laid the desire to home school on my heart. Although, it took a while for me to obey this direction. Now fast forward to today, three years later. We finished with our third year Friday (although I do like one thing more to accomplish).

There are days where I LOVE home schooling our children and there are days where I don't like it so much, but there are never days where I wish I didn't do it. Yes, we yell. Yes, we sometimes fight.  Yes, we laugh. Yes, we have fun. And yes, we learn in the midst of all of that.  Homeschooling has brought my family close. My children are each others best friends (even when they fight!), and I wouldn't change that. It works for us. It might not work for everybody and that's ok.

But I am so very happy to say "SCHOOLS OUT FOR SUMMER!" well till July at least!
