Thankful

Yesterday the kids and I went for a walk to get our free RedBox movie and run a couple other errands. I realized as we were walking there how thankful I am to be able to homeschool the kids and be home with them. I was noticing in them their innocense starting to slip away a bit while they were in school but yesterday reminded me yet again of why having them home is the best thing for us. They were all running down the sidewalk with their scarves on their necks with the tails flying in the wind behind them pretending to fly, it was so sweet and young and free. In our society if seems they are expected to grow up so fast and the other children mine were around were very quick to make fun of, etc. So to see them doing something like that or even skipping instead of running makes me thankful. I know homeschooling is not for everyone, believe me we have our hard days, too. God gives me these little reminders, I just have to sit back and pay attention!

Every morning I get up thankful, thankful for the choices we have made, living off the grid, home schooling, building our own home. It is hard some days, as you mention, but all worth it in the end
