He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young
. {Isaiah 40:11}

14 June 2012


It's been one of THOSE past seven days.
The kind where I overbook myself and don't realize it until it's too late.
The kind where it hit me that I have a ridiculous number of children crazy-close together!
The kind where I don't feel like I can get a grip on our household and all the noise and messiness that happens here.
The kind where my 3 year old decides he's going to whine like it's his job and inform me of how "that's not fair" and "I don't want to" all while piling toys in front of the basement bathroom in an attempt to block my path to the laundry room because "I don't like you, mom". {But if you notice I'm making progress on removing the wallpaper... which is nice.}
The kind where my 2 year old cries over every little thing...
The kind where my 1 year old gets the fever that her siblings had and doesn't seem to be handling it as well as the other two did.
And this weekend is my very first home school convention...
you know... the place you go to learn about all the more work that you're gonna be taking on on top of the work you already do in your home!
Amazingly... it's also the place you go to learn that you're not alone in this world and you don't have to  be supermom because, quite frankly, supermom "isn't real!" 
I snuck away for a few hours to sit it on some classes this afternoon and I cannot explain the rest I found there. I attended three seminars and, until 3:30 this afternoon, I somehow I missed how this was a Christian convention of sorts and was so refreshed by the Word of God being spoken along with state legal requirements and organizing your time.
The body of Christ is so beautiful and I am genuinely sad for those who miss out on the sheer sweetness of it all.
I already have a few notes that I want to share with on what I've heard {hopefully sooner rather than later}.
I am already feeling renewed and for that, especially right now, I am incredibly grateful. God is good.

Enjoy your weekend, friends! 
It looks as though I'm going to be enjoying mine! 


  1. I am completely excited about your Homeschool Convention!! I haven't been to one and will soak up any and all information you get!!!!

  2. What a blessing to have such a big awesome basement. Even if CJ is blocking your path ;) Can't wait to hear about your experience at the conference.


I always love a good comment.
