If you ask me, what’s my favorite time of our homeschool schedule, I would have to say that it’s our daily devotions. As we’ve had our daily devotions over the months, I could really see my kids growing in the walk with God. Though I could still see a lot of struggles with their attitudes and the way they deal with each other as siblings, but somehow I see small changes everyday. And with these changes, I’m so happy and I feel fulfilled. Praise the Lord!
My kids love to make their own crafts. I think they somehow understood that I’m a bit lazy on that ‘department’ now. So, that must be the reason why they take their own initiative and create their own stuff. I won’t be surprise if the time will come when my daughter would be searching for DIY projects and crafts in Pinterest. Of course, I will still have to supervise them so they won’t end up making diy pest control products or something that would make unforgiveable mess. But maybe once in a while I should make a fun craft with them. Hmm..let me check on some ideas from Pinterest.
I never thought I’d be a SAHM ( Stay-at-Home-Mom) before. I mean, that was not one of my ‘ambitions’ when I was young. But as we are working in a full time ministry abroad, I didn’t have a choice but to be one especially as I’m also homeschooling my kids. Being a SAHM and a homeschooler is truly rewarding( maybe I can write a separate post on that) , but there are just times that one gets tired and burnt out. I think that’s where I am now in my journey as a SAHM and homeschooler. I wonder how other homeschooler moms handle these situations. I really need to learn from them. I could also just take a step back, evaluate and see what changes I can do to avoid these situation. Or maybe, I can just take a short break .. but how?
My li’l girl will be turning 9 tomorrow! She’s very excited to be 9 years old and I’m not so sure why! lol! A few years ago, she’s excited for her birthdays because of parties and presents, but this time she’s just excited about growing up! Or.. maybe it’s the only thing left for her to be excited of since there are not more parties and less presents as the time goes by.
Anyways, I’m happy for my little girl too. Tomorrow will be a special day for her because it’s a testimony of God’s faithfulness over the years. Indeed, she’s so precious and special for us and we just love her so much!
It just saw the photos of my niece’s birthday celebration. She had a simple ‘pool party’ with her other cousins. It really looked like they enjoyed their celebration with or without hayward salt cell for the pool. I just wished my kids were there to celebrate with her. My kids always love to be with their cousins. When they looked at the photos they told me how they missed their cousins too!
Here’s the birthday girl in her Minnie Mouse swimwear.
