School Is Out

Today and tomorrow marks the last day for school for our 2011/2012 school year.  It is a bittersweet moment.  I will be glad to have a break and go back to being a full-time homemaker!  At the same time it is sad.  It means that my young ones are growing up and growing away.  Okay, maybe not like going off to college in the fall, but you know, another year gone.

I was very tearful this afternoon since Daughter #7 finished the first grade.  She is now a second grader!  I have no more little ones to teach first grade!  She has learned so much.  We started the year reviewing simple addition families, one's, two's, etc., and ended the year starting the nineteen family and very simple multiplication!

It will take me some time to close the year out totally.  I have new material to order and old to take off the shelves.  Some items will remain for the next child and some will never be used by us again.  There really is so much to get done, but my house needs my attention!  It is time to get in the nook and crannies!  Watch out kiddos!  Momma will be on a roll!  If you sit too long you might be mistaken for a dust-bunny! *smile*

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!
