I know this is really random, but I just really enjoyed this post that Amy put up today. It hits home with me a lot. Some people that Del works with think he's a slave driver since I'm always cooking dinner or pregnant or something awful like that. I really like her point about "isms." It's a long read, but it's worth it, if you haven't checked it out yet.
On another note, this week Marie will be working her last day at KPMG and then coming home to Caleb. I wish I could throw her a "WELCOME HOME" party or something like that. And I wish we all lived closer since being a Full-time Mom (phrase given to me by Marie) is a job that needs a lot of support and I wish I could be there to support her. It'd be really good for me, too. Let's pick a place in the middle and all move there. I sure do miss you guys. It's lonely here.
And hey, if you're new to homeschooling, thinking about homeschooling, or thinking of doing classical education with your kids, make sure you read Susan Wise-Bauer's blog. She has recently put up her notes of what her days were like 1998, 1999 and 2000 and will be putting up a fourth. She had three older kids and an infant in 2000. I re-read these on her website lots of times and they were such an encouragement to me. Homeschooling is not like public school. Make it YOUR school and don't let anyone tell you you're not doing a good enough job because you're not schooling every minute of the day between 8 AM and 4 PM. Go read and get encouraged!
