Thankful Thursday

I can breathe! Yes, I am being honest. The school year is over, and I can breathe. Please don't misunderstand. Teaching and discipling my kids is my passion. That process is all encompassing leaving little time for, well, breathing.

That said, the first thing I thought of for this week's Thankful Thursday is that God has given me the ability and passion to teach. Although the bookwork is done until August, the teaching will never stop. Our camping trips, visits into the city, gardens, game nights and many other things that fill our summer schedule will all be opportunities to learn.

God has been so gracious to me. He chose to save me as a young girl, yet he continues to teach me daily and show his patience when I mess up and need to be taught again and again and again. Now I have the challenge to show grace and patience to my children as they learn daily.

I joke about being able to breathe, yet I am thankful for the chance to regroup and rebuild my excitement for another year.

Visit here to be blessed by other thankful hearts.

I am glad for summer break as well. It's good for us, especially as homeschool moms. A little less structure is just what we all need!

I hope you enjoy yours!

Good to be finished! Come September it will be the REAL thing for us! Kindergarten already, Lord?!?!
If you can squeeze in a trip out to the other Air and Space, it's well worth the short drive. Have a great trip to DC.
