For all those homeschooling Moms out there--Just in time for
T'was the night before Christmas and all through the home,
Children were still studying for their test on Rome.
Mom was planning, she had just an hour,
To teach 'one more lesson' before their night shower.
A whole week of vacation, the children were thrilled,
But Mom saw the lesson plans, and the blocks were still filled.
"Can I stop for a day, much less a whole week?"
Just the thought of time off, made me shudder and shriek!
Would they remember anything, would they fall behind?
"Lord, I need your help, just give me a sign!!!"
Then out on the sidewalk, I saw my four boys,
And I heard them say, "it's not about toys."
To the neighborhood kids, they explained Jesus' birth,
And how through Jesus, not toys, we gain our worth.
At that point, math and spelling and learning to write,
Meant little to me as I had lost the sight
Of what teaching at home was truly about.
Then I sat at my desk and began to pout.
The pouts turned to sobs, "Lord what have I done?
It's not about grades, but to follow your Son!"
"Please guide me and show me my job is to teach,
and turn them to you, and of Jesus I'll preach."
Now we'll put away books and not open them 'til later,
We'll focus on Jesus, our Lord and Creator.
It's His day and so we will all celebrate,
I'll never mention the words "behind" or "we're late".
So, Thank You, Lord, for blessing me,
With such a great husband and family.
Now homeschooling moms,
TURN OUT THE SCHOOL LIGHT!
And, "Happy Christmas To All And To All A Good Night!"
Just a quick update to let you know we had the baby!! Yay!!!! :D Here name: Ana Karisa (pronounced A-nah Ka-ree-sah ) Born: January 30 at 9:15 PM Weight: 7'2 oz 19 inches Beautiful little girl. Here are some pictures and when I start feeling normal and not so much like a milk cow, then I will post the details of what took place on Delivery day. ( Ana about 5 minutes old) (Here she after her check up--about 30 minutes old) (Coming home!! 1 1/2 days old) We came home yesterday late afternoon, and I am lacking much sleep. I really haven't slept since last Saturday. She is nursing a lot right now to bring down my milk. I've been nursing around the clock. Almost every hour. I am doing this because she has been hungry and I need my milk to come in as soon as possible. I am showing signs today of it coming in. She is not so fussy and more content. It is so easy to forget about those newborn days. It doesn't matter how many babies you have h
