We experienced the willy-nillies of the first week of homeschooling.
It felt good to get back into the swing of things today. I've learned some very valuable lessons through the past week.

No.1 While in the midst of the helter-skelter of our home with crying, diapering, feeding, holding, bathing, arguing siblings, whining, and homeschooling, it's hard to see the value of our everyday routine.

There are seasons of life, some more challenging than others. Right now we are in the season of mentoring, teaching, and training our children.
There is no one who will love them more than us, be willing to correct them consistently, teach them godly values, train them the right way, or mentor them by example.
This season will be gone soon and we'll never get it back.

This season is such a blessing to me...I don't want to miss a single second of it.

We are figuring out how to work more independently...without distractions.
I wrote all the children's names on the chalkboard and put a strike next to their name when they interrupted the lesson.
{K} ended up with the most strikes, {L} followed and {M} came out clean with none.
The children love the science experiments, and of course recess!

For the most part we have managed to keep things organized and simple...

{J} is really soaking up the extra attention. He's now a climber. a scooter, a backwards crawler, eight months old, a stinker, and the proud owner of eight teeth.

So while I'm unable to have very many moments to sit and meditate, and seek wisdom...alone...

{I thought I was alone for this moment...apparently not...ha!}

...I still know that I'm on the right path, and I see signs all over telling me that THIS is what we're meant to be doing...

I love these moments of affirmation...
