I recently came across this blog, and found this story. I really like it and it says a lot to us mothers. I have really been struggling recently with feeling like I don't spend enough time with my kids doing learning activities together,and just spending time with the kids reading or whatever. I feel frustrated a lot that there is much that I need to get done, and I think of how much time something will take, and I will wonder how I can finish what I have to get done. I have been feeling strongly that maybe I should begin to look into another curriculum. I like my curriculum, but with three kids in school and a baby on the way, I feel like I am missing out on those heart to heart moments in favor of a schedule that MUST get done. This is something that I really need to think and pray about. I feel that another curriculum might be right, but that is a big step to take, especially as we have already bought all our books for this year. I am afraid that if I don't have something laid out for me, that I might miss something the kids should be learning. And I am not good at making my own lesson plans. I seem to jumble things up. I never want to lose my children to "mom is too busy to care about what is going on now". Anyways here is the link to this story. I hope that you will stop over at Audry's blog and read it. Great story, it's called "Sam's Story".
I just wrote that I have nothing to blog about and now I blog all this... :)
