Homeschooling and Homemaking while Pregnant

How do you do it?  These are the questions people often ask me.  Actually, I really don't know how. I know it is the grace of God.  I am by far an organized person.  I really desire to be like those mommys who have a great schedule or have a master grocery list or an organized homeschool portfolio.  

My Waking time:
Many times I wake up late.  The past few months I have been trying to get up around 5 am but noooo, not happening.  I told myself if I can get up around 7 at the latest then I am somewhat ok.  I definitely need to get up before the children.  I also need to get bed on time!!  I will someday get this down.  Hopefully sooner than later. 

My Grocery list:
I sometimes have such a hard time figuring out what I am going to make let alone what do I buy for these next few weeks or even month.  Yikes!!  While I am pregnant sometimes I can't actually think.  I have to sit down and think very HARD.  I finally found a small little system that works for me.  If I can plan my dinners then it is downhill from there.  I go onto my computer calendar and schedule the meals out this way.  It has worked.  Then my email sends me a reminder as to what I am making that day.  So far it has worked.  Hallelujah, thank you Lord. 

My Homeschooling:
Sometimes I wonder why God has entrusted me to homeschool my children.  This is my flesh speaking and I have to remember what God said years ago when my oldest was in 1st grade.  You are going to homeschool!!  So here I am and my oldest is in high school now and boy, sometimes it can be tempting to put him in school.  But again, I have to remember the "word of the Lord".  And then I say to myself---"I can do ALL things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me." 

My husband has been schooling my oldest and doing some science and history with my 11yr old girl.  So all I have to worry about is the Shiloh and Tsavah's schooling day.  Lately, even this has been a challenge. I know it is only a season and this is what I am reminded of.  When the baby comes, I won't feel so tired.  Honestly, once my babies are born, I actually have so much energy and I don't get very sleepy.  Even when I am waking every two-three hours, oh....and just to have my body shrink back ,is a relief.  I know I will be back to thinking more clearly and probably doing all kinds of schooling once Spring gets here.  

As for now, I am taking it one day at a time and enjoying my time of pregnancy.  I am counting down the weeks because I can't wait to meet my new little girl.  We are so excited about her joining our family.  Especially her older sisters.  

Blessings

Meet Sweet Kara Faith

My sweet friend Nancy from Mom Just Like You , delivered sweet Kara Faith on January 8, 2010 at around 6:45 AM. Nancy's husband Stu calls me around 5:30 AM to let me know Nancy's contractions never let up and she was going to be delivering their long awaited miracle baby Kara. It has been an emotional battle these past 4 to 5 months for Nancy and Stu. Kara was diagnosed with Alobar HPE on the same day they found out they were having a baby girl, their 8th child, third daughter. Their heart was broken not knowing what the future held for them. Nancy leaned on the only source she had in her life: The Lord. I have been friends with Nancy for 5 plus years now (we met on MOMYS). When I found out Nancy was going to have a special baby, immediately my mommy heart was aching for my sweet friend. I went into deep prayer and intercession for them. I was grieving along with them, but deep down in my heart I knew God was and is Faithful. As I prayed one evening at worship nigh
