As you will have noticed I have been very absent from this blog and the website in general. I think I have now recovered from the transition of having my "kids" turn into "teens" before my very eyes. Amazing how much they change during this stage of life! It really has made me think outside my usual homeschooling and parenting boxes! With that said I am hoping to have time to ease back into blogging. Since I am currently busy helping pull the 2012 OHEN Convention together I will start small with "What I am Grateful For" posts. I find that these posts help me the most in keeping a positive attitude about homeschooling, parenting and life in general.
Today I am grateful for my middlest child. She is super spunky yet super shy, super smart but not academic, and she totally keeps me on my toes every single day of her life. Thanks to her I have learned to think WAY outside the box and to appreciate a broader flavor of life. Her compassion and connection with animals is remarkable and reminds me to slow down and really think about my own connection with the animal world. She truly is a "critter whisperer" that both wild and domestic animals are drawn to. She taught me that it is possible to see and taste music...something I would never have dreamed possible. She inspires me regularly and when I'm not busy being the worried mom I know that she will go on to have a wonderful adulthood because she is a wonderful person.
So very grateful that life brought this unique, smart, quirky and fun girl into my life! She has taught me much.
