Reasons for this VANISH are many but the main one is that I had another bought with my health. When this happens truly all things come to a stand still other than things that are the most importance and that is my husband, children, home, and their schooling. Yes...The Lord too. *Smiles* Oh...and my health. *Smiles*
Second reason was that I was feeling a pull to pull back from the internet. I was blogging, using social media, and etc. I was constantly feeling this pulling at my heart to let it go for a bit.
So that is just what I did. I am feeling somewhat better. I have still being having some issues but the Lord has been good and I feel like I am turning a new leaf. I have since dropped my social media accounts and it has been so refreshing.
Since my last time on here (April I think) we have had a 16th birthday party, celebrated Mother's Day, wrapped a very good "home"school year up, had a high schooler take the ACT and did exceptionally well and now is enrolled in a top 100 college in America while being in High School. He will graduate high school with a year of college under his belt. He will homeschool the remainder of his High School and dual credit with the University in our area. This will be a big undertaking.
I celebrated my 36th birthday, we celebrated my "baby's" 9th birthday, my daughter started a dog sitting and walking business and has done really well for an 11 year old. I have focused on making personal relationships deeper and more meaningful. I have been opened our home up (which I struggled with for a long time) and began hosting friends, families, and bible students for fellowship.
We have had a wonderful LAZY filled June (Summer Break) and have enjoyed pool time, outings with friends and family, date nights, read great books, playing board games, and just hanging around.
I am very thankful for you all. I hope to be regular now and then. I know that our summer will be wrapping up in a few weeks so I am planning to come out of lazy mode a little and began to prepare our home and family for the homeschool year coming. This takes a lot of prep work.
Love you all!!
