Friday = Relieved
early start to a Friday, coffee and Jesus at 6 am.
waffles for breakfast amid conversations of public school, I was testing the waters-planting seeds. (and I hate that green table. hate it. impulsive buys at thrift stores aren’t always the best idea. I’m crossing my fingers that this is the year I get a new big farmhouse table)
then off to school at 8:45
yes, that’s a pout there. it was slow going today. really slow.
at 11 I switched students and it got even slower. gah….it’s getting clearer and clearer that we are headed in the right direction for school. even though it’s hard.
didn’t even get to the kindergartener today….she was mastering self timer shots while I was upstairs with the others
12:30 lunch, then zooming off to get chores all done…..
but… in the middle a long conversation with all three kids about sending them to public school. not in the fall but like next month. we’ve been praying for God to prepare their hearts, prepare us and he has. they are so receptive and excited. (even though they are nervous, understandably so.) and I cannot even begin to explain the weight that was lifted during that conversation. I am so relieved. I feel a freedom like I haven’t in a long time. that is good, this is good….on to the rest of the day
afternoon walmart trip
rainy, rainy, rainy
4:30 back home, one to karate, one kid out with a friend, making pizza and settling in
evening activities of americas funniest home videos, just added on netflix. my kids love it so. playmobile playing. and some friend time for the kids.
they went to bed and we started true grit. and nodded off. and so decided to call it a night. cuz we’re crazy old people who think that going to bed (and sleeping) and ten on a friday is living the wild life.
and that is a wonderful way to start the weekend, don't you think?
