Bookworm, Mickey, and Curly Girl started attending our church’s Christian school last week. Okay… all you homeschoolers out there pick yourselves up off the floor and breathe! We have prayed much and have great peace about our decision. Still, it is a big adjustment for us after homeschooling for the past four years. The kids are actually having a blast so far. That may change once the workload picks up a bit.
I am not home alone twiddling my thumbs all day. Lil’ Nut is my constant companion and shadow. She helps me around the house and enjoys having Mommy all to herself. We have a flexible daily schedule that includes fun preschool learning and lots of playtime. There’s even a morning designated to visiting the local library. I am looking forward to spending more one-on-one time with my baby.
My handsome hubby takes the kids to school each morning and is able to visit with them during lunchtime since his office is just a few steps away from the cafeteria. I am glad that he is able to check on them throughout the day.
Our afternoons aren’t that much different. There is homework to be done, and the kids still have chores to do. Bookworm has resumed piano lessons with the instructor she first started taking lessons from four years ago. Her studio is conveniently located just down the street from our house. We still have lots of family time each evening. Splashing in the pool is a great way to wind down from a busy day.
We’re happy, healthy, and serving the Lord. Life is good.
