I AM GETTIN' EXCITED!!!
The Fall is approaching...
and the McCarthy Home School is brewing...
like a tea kettle on the stove top...
at any moment...the whistle will BLOW!
Today was an interesting day.
Been vascilating back and forth as to ...should I or shouldn't I embark on
Home Schooling...with all the upheaval we are going through right now.
"Lord, what do I do? Am I crazy to even think I COULD do this NOW?"
We had a down day today.
I watched the children and imagined what our lives would look like as a Home Schooling family, again, with 5 now instead of 3.
Then tonight I hit the internet...and OH! what a WEALTH!!
What a remembrance! What JOY filled me as I read blog after blog, forum after forum, website after website!
I remembered ALL the long hours of researching 6 years ago and discovering how PASSIONATELY I embraced Charlotte Mason!
I started getting EXCITED about all the FUN and DISCOVERY we will have this new year
as a TRIBE...as our new Pastor Mark refers to us...The McCarthy Tribe!
Doing things like ...this...
Going out on Adventures together!
Learning and Growing
and in His
Encouraging eachother and others...
There won't be any days with
backpacks waiting and staring
out into the dark for
your early morning ride in
the dead of winter. = )
Sweet Momma, moments...in the middle of the day!
LOTS of SWEET MOMMA Moments! = )
As I read the blogs and was placed in the Home School Life, again, through all the
pictures and words, and stories...I just WELLED inside and thought
"If not now, when?"
We only have our little ones for a brief time. How much time we waste not
TRULY pouring into them...if Home Schooling is where the Lord is leading. He will give the increase...He will expand the tent.
My prayer is that the Lord will FUEL me with this excitement and vision
and that He will heal me and work with us as we embark on
this new school year.
We travel to New Bern on Friday...
I have a week alone to gather my thoughts, PRAY, and discern this new year.
The future is SO bright!
Gotta put our SUNGLASSES ON!!! = )
