Hi Blog family! I’m sorry I haven’t been consistently posting, but I have been consistently reading your posts. Those of you who write daily devotionals…. My hat is off to you! I read in wonder of how you can come up with something daily. But then I remind myself the authors don’t have kids tugging at their brains! Lol.
Being a mom can be mental hard work some days. I will hear my girls bickering, and I just want to pound a gavel to stop the courtroom jibbering and yammering. Other days being a mom is physically draining as I’m bending over and picking up this and that. Folding clothes and frying pans of chicken. They say I’m going to miss these days, y’all. I will, I know I will.
Homeschooling is going good. Anyone have a trick to help a kid hear the short ‘e’ and the short ‘i’? Leah has a hard time differentiating between the two when she is spelling.
Things I’ve learned recently….
1. If you run a funeral dinner, ask those younger than you to help so you’re not the young one doing the lifting and such. My back hurt for two weeks!
2. Not everyone needs to be prayed with at the alter. Some just need time alone with God.
I learned a hi-five goes a long way for a kid that’s not your kid. Most of them welcome interaction with other adults.
3. I learned not to volunteer to help someone if you don’t know how to help. Because you then become more work for them.
I learned if your neighbor’s cows get out of the fence, chasing them with snow shovels does not work! Just get a bucket of grain and they will follow you anywhere! True story.
