I have a Monday list a mile long. Change oil in car, bank, .... you get the routine. I am sitting here though enjoying a most wonderful cup of coffee from my Keurig. It came Friday and we have been having the best time with it. I will show you tomorrow. Love it!!
Saturday my second daughter is officially graduating from high school. We are having a big party. She has been home schooled her entire life. Not one day in regular school but many days being taught by other wonderful folks and the last two years she has been taking her classes at the local Junior College under a dual enrollment program. She has been a delight her entire life. I love her more than she will ever know. She has always been the sunshine in our home. Big wide smile and sweet disposition. Sharp witted though. She could zing you with a funny comment since she was three. She taught herself to read at four and has always kept wonderful grades and is as organized a kid as you can get. If it wouldn't embarrass her, I would show you her drawers. Perfect. I used to pay her to organize mine. She has the kind of brain I wish I had been born with.
Being able to home school her has been my pleasure and is a wonderful way to really get to know your kid. Nothing like figuring out a math lesson to bring a family together (NOT). You really get a chance to know your kids when you are together so many hours a day. Now some may not like that, but I loved it. My little chicks all around me. I am so used to them being here, I am off balance when most of them are gone. The quiet disturbs me. But I am slowly getting used to them all here less and less. Next year, my third will attend public high school which will be a huge change for us. It is what she wants and she is a great kid so I am letting her flap her wings and move on to another chapter in our home. 17 years of homeschooling behind me. It is a big job when you commit to it, but the rewards are priceless and I am so thankful that I had the honor to teach them, a husband who supported and stood by me and the chance to spend my lunch hour with them all these years. Thanks girls for taking the road with me that everyone thought I was crazy to start all those years ago. We survived and you thrived. Can't ask for anything more than that.
