Life Is great, in 08! (do I sound like a highschool cheerleader? READY? OKAY!)


Happy New Years Day! It’s the first day of 08, and…I’m tired. But I spent a lot of 07 tired. I think I need to drink more coffee. Or maybe exercise more, but I like coffee so much more than exercising.

D and I slept late today, which was nice; nothing like starting the year off being lazy.

I have to say that I am looking forward to the next semester of our school and I am giddy. The last semester was a hard one. We had my niece living with us and I was homeschooling her as well as my own. Homeschooling 5 was harder than I thought.

Also, the kids had a lot of places they needed to get to last year. I try very hard to limit our outside activities but last semester it seemed that all the kids had places to go.

A has Scottish Rite dyslexia school 4 days a week for 2 hours a day, right in the middle of the day. We had a carpool set up but still that is a lot of running around. I have Thursday co op where I teach and the kids attend classes, then B has an algebra tutor one a week. Then of course AWANA on Sunday night.

This semester, T is living at home with her parents again and attending public school, and Bryce is driving. That means I don’t have to take him to his activities. WHEW. I feel bon bon’s and couch time in my future. Ha, just kidding, maybe I’ll actually get to keep my house a little cleaner.

So I am looking forward to the New Year. I feel like some things have been taken off my plate, and after last semester, I’m relieved. Last semester was hard, really hard.
Last semester we had…

B broke his jaw

I got shingles (that had me in bed for about a month)

The boys got Chicken pox

Everyone but me got a cold from the dark side that made it sound like I was living in a smokers den.

We had various other health related issues that I won’t go into, because some of them were just, well, eeew.

So I see good things happening this year. God brought us through some hard times, but we are stronger, only because we’re leaning more heavily on Him.

I can’t help but think about how different my friend D’s and E’s life will be this year without Katie. I will spend much time praying God’s blessing for them this year. But I do know that this year for Katie will be amazing!
