It’s coming to THAT time of the year….sending my guys back to school. Why, do I dread the thought of this so much? I like my kids being home.
Every single year seems to be ‘something new’. We have been in one school district, to home schooling, to another school district, back to homeschooling, back to school, and now waiting on word for another school district. It seems I am always telling the Lord, “I want to do what is BEST for my darling, so what would you have me to do?” I do not regret even one change that we have made each year. Each year is different and so is each child. They all have different desires and needs and we try our best to do right by what the Lord is creating them to be. We, as parents, are the assistant to the ONE who navigates. I always want to be open to what He would have me do to grow them up in the way they should go. Sometimes it is way inconvenient or hard but I KNOW now thru experience, a little bit, that parenting isn’t always easy.
They bring so much joy into my world, I’m so grateful He has seen to it that I am the one He placed these four kiddoes in my care to direct them towards the things of Him and not of this world. That is the goal right? Just finished making a whole bunch of cookies to freeze so that they are ready for lunches when school does get here. Going thru clothes to see what we fit into and what we don’t. We have been talking alot about being ‘content’ with the things that we already have and not be in want. Corvan said this morning to me, “I am content with what I have right here!” I almost kissed him silly and wanted to say, “Just for that attitude LET’S GO SHOPPING!” but I refrained.
I am soaking up every last minute of my summer with kids home, how about you?
A memory I will cherish forever over this summer. Aren’t they handsome?
