In 6 days, we'll be homeschoolers again. This is very exciting for a mama that is missing one-on-one time with her babies something awful. The curriculum is purchased and the lesson plans are made, and I'm thrilled to be starting the new year off this way. It'll make our days off much smoother, too, since we won't have a school schedule to work around and we'll be able to travel a bit farther from home. Yippee! (Remind me of this excitement when I'm beating my head against the wall trying to teach geometry. Eek.)
How was Christmas, y'all? (Remember, I'm a Texan now. Kind of.)
Ours was good... glad the chaos is ending, to be honest. Decorations will be coming down tomorrow, and that will be the end of that. Ahem. As much as I hate snow, it was weird to spend Christmas in a t-shirt. A windstorm Christmas just isn't quite as magical as a white one.
I'm still homesick. Terribly. This is made worse by a really incredible job offer Mr. Smitten received back up in Oregon (home for us). He said no... against his every desire... and now we're fighting the "Are we really supposed to be here?" demons that are creeping up constantly. As if the holidays weren't stressful enough, around every stressful circumstance is doubt of whether we're really in the right place, even when we don't feel like it. I know God knows what He is doing though, and its a good thing, because I don't have a clue. I guess that all remains to be continued.
I'm grateful, though, that a new year is upon us and one with more family time. Helloooo homeschool!
