Weekly Wrap-Up: Week, Consider Yourself Wrapped!

Hey Everybody,

Now y'all know I don't talk about my kids much (ROFL), but it's the weekly wrap-up and this is where I indulge in talking about them and what we're doing!

Big news this week: Danya started college. My, oh my--it is so official! We are so excited for her. As a homeschooling mom, I never had to experience dropping my kids off at kindergarten, or watching them climb aboard a big yellow schoolbus...nope, on my child's "first day of school," she drove herself to the university and it was all good.  No sad faces! :) I am praising the Lord for all the years we spent together learning, and I am excited for her in all that God has planned...I know that His plans are to prosper her and not to harm her, to give her a hope and a future! And as far as the past is concerned, when it comes to our decision to homeschool, I have no regrets.

Sure hope my kids don't either! I don't think they do. We were asked once what their biggest complaints were about homeschooling, and Derek responded that we didn't have a house dog.


We don't have a house dog, actually; we have a humongous dog that is most definitely an outside dog, but if that is the kid's only complaint, then I'm good with it! :)

Also big news this week: David started another year of tutorials. What we have is similar to a hybrid school, but it is only one day a week. We have used tutorials for the subjects that I, well, that I cannot bring any degree of enthusiasm to: advanced math courses, foreign language, and chemistry (ugh!). David's math instructor believes that when God said, "Be fruitful and multiply," He meant, Sit down and do your Saxon! LOL! David needs those folks who are crazy about those subjects that hold no appeal for me. It is such a blessing for our family to have those classes available.

Derek, my youngest, just continued to make me smile this week. :) We are enjoying our time together. I am  hugging all of them a little tighter this week because I realize every day how short is the time we have with our kids.

You know, that's why I started the Weekly Wrap-Up...because, in the early days of my blogging, every post was "We got up, we ate breakfast, we did school." I knew that no one wanted to read day after day of that, but I figured everybody could put up with one day of me indulging and talking about my kids and what was going on in our day-to-day life.

Congrats to Danya! I know she's excited and you and your husband are incredibly proud.

Thanks for all the congrats! In my early days of homeschooling, homeschooling through high school seemed far out of reach. It's really not. :) And it has been so worth it, y'all--so hang in there!

My oldest is going to Community College this year. It's hard watching her leave in the morning, but it's so much fun to hear about her day at dinnertime. I hope her enthusiasm carries us through the semester!

I know what you mean! Last year, mine had a job, so she was leaving every morning, and I was able to get used to it then. It was a lot different! Happens fast!

Hope your daughter has a great semester!
