First Week of Homeschool For 2009 School Year

Hello friend's, it has been awhile but with V.B.S. and now school starting I have had no time to even sit for more than 5 or 10 minutes REALLY I need more time lol!!! I have made it through one week of our homeschool year now 35 more weeks to go hee-hee who's counting right?????
So I am really feeling OLD as I was teaching my daughter how to start a car and all the things you do check horn, lights, mirrors and so on WOW I cant believe she is taking Driver's ED. O.M.G. RIGHT??? I remember as though it were yesterday I was teaching her to tie her stinkin shoes and now her DAD will be taking her to drive HIS car I so dont even know what happened to the time it is sooooooo frightening to me. So I was very convicted to not complain to count my EVERY blessing and to CHERISH EVERYDAY as though it were the last cause really friends it very well could be we just will not know when the day or hour may come. I am so blessed to homeschool my kiddo's I cant imagine life without them and this is huge for me I USE TO DREAD homeschool the last few years and could not wait for years end and now I am blessed and desire to teach my children all I can as long as I can and the time really does go by in the blink of an eye we have such a limited window with our kids and we can either be effective in that window or let the opportunities we have with them slip right through our very hands because of our own selfish desires: So I encourage you today if your kids are homeschooled go to public or private schools be involved in their lives make it a priority to put them above your selfish desires, wants, and ambitions there will be plenty of time for those (Lord willing)when our kiddo's are all grown up however the time we have with them as children is fleeting and gone in the blink of an eye so remember the next time you are VERY tired from a hard days worth of work and your child asks you to PLEASE read to me MOMMY OR DADDY and you say NOT NOW maybe LATER that there may be very few laters if any at all really keeping that mind set helps me to grasp EVERY MOMENT I can with ALL my 7 kiddo's....................
Just something to ponder I pray all of you Homeschooled or public schooled have had a blessed first week or week period may God continue to bless each of us and multiply our efforts........

Until Next Time,
