Put Away the Old, Bring Out the New

If anyone has ever misled you that being a home educator is easy, let me lead you into the right path!  It is not!  I do not have time right now to give all the ins and outs of home education, but let me give just an insight to the title above, "Put Away the Old, Bring Out the New".

Our school year has been over for a little over a week.  I am JUST now getting to removing the old material and putting out the new for 2011/2012 school year.  I had hopes-high hopes, I might add-to have the "lockers" {12 cube bookshelf} ready to go last Wednesday, the day following Daughter #2's graduation.  But life is busy and Momma fell short of the goal!  Now, I already felt bad because I did not accomplish what I felt I needed to have done.  But a 'friend' came over one evening last week and asked if I had redone the "lockers".  When I told her no, she stated that she didn't think so, because they did not look any different than before.  I could have cried, screamed, and yelled, but decided to do like I usually do and ignore it.  I did decide to try to "state my case", but I kept getting cut off.  Oh well, life marches on.

So, today is the day to remove and replace.  I have nine scholars material to go through, and eight to replace.  Some of the text books can be reused, some have been revised and need to be replaced, and some need to be stored.  It really is a big job!  

So, I had my lunch break, and this is my tea break!  I've vented and my dining room is a mess!

{Thanks for "listening"!}

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!
