The summer is flying by. Daniel graduated on June 30th. It is official; I now only have two more years of homeschooling to go. I can honestly say I won't miss it. It has been and is wonderful and I am blessed to be able to homeschool our children. I wouldn't trade the last 24 years for anything anyone could offer me.
It's just that I have new interests now and I don't seem to have enough time to indulge in them. I am still working in our yard and the change is amazing. I absolutely love what God has provided and enabled us to do with what He's given and provided. My patio isn't finished, but I've decided I'm waiting for cooler weather. I've been harvesting vegetables from my first ever vegetable plot and it is so satisfying to eat what I've planted or set out (my tomatoes and peppers). Donald doesn't even like tomatoes, yet he's eating mine!! Of course there is no comparison between a store bought and home-grown tomato. The kids have enjoyed the okra and squash and I am loving the cucumbers. I've learned a lot with my small raised bed garden this year. Even Donald is talking about expanding our endeavor next year.
I am working part time and though it's not a lot of hours it has changed my little world drastically. I am thankful that God provided this job ahead of when I thought I would search for a part time job. I'd rather it come to me than look for it!
I love my God, my family, and my life. I'm so blessed!!
