My primary reason for creating this blog was to capture our first "official" year of homeschooling. It would be a way to have an electronic dairy of our work and share that with others. It has been an amazing journey learning how to blog and meeting fellow bloggers. It has fulfilled the primary function as a record keeping tool. As I was scrolling through my entries over the last year I was shocked how much work we have done in our first year. This blog helps me appreciate how far we have come in our homeschooling journey.
Over the last 100 days I have not been updating as frequently as I use to because real life demands have left me with very little if any free time. Those who know me personally can testify to the life changing challenges God has presented to our family. I have been documenting those changes offline and will share them later as life slows down. I praised God for his mercy and blessings through it all.
The core lessons from the last 100 days are that:
- God is faithful.
- Change is constant.
I have gained so much from this experience and will be forever changed by it. My prayers at the beginning of the year were to become more a woman of faith, strengthen my marriage, help me appreciate what I have and become a better parent. Granny always said "God will answer all prayers, but not the way YOU want them answered." All of those have been strengthened, flex and stretched to the point of almost breaking. But we are still here and doing great.
At this 100 day mark I just want celebrate being here!
