A List of Three

1. School: This week in school we didn't. What I mean is that we did two days of science (birds), LA, and math. We then quit for the week in a desperate attempt to do laundry, clean, and switch over our seasonal clothes....and didn't get very far on that either! We did read a great book, Archaeologists Dig For Clues. The kids then excavated a significant portion of our play-yard which yielded a ceramic pot, circa 2000 AD.

2. Grumblings: The ugliness that often comes with Christianity. We are asked to be working towards love, folks. Would Jesus make people sign a Statement of Faith? Would he advise measuring some one's faith by their battle with depression? Or their attire? Or whether they have a wee bit of cotton tacked on their heads? Grrr.

3. Gratitude: My husband, who puts up with how emotional I am, and without whom I may have become a nun. My kids (of course). The awesome diversity that is evident in God's creation. My friends. Nature. Art. Hot showers. Filling an empty stomach. Our home. The ability to serve others. Pushing my comfort zone. St. Mary's RCIA program. My mom, sister, brother, and dad. Passions.

I'm Back?

It has been so long since I've posted that I'm not sure where to start. Here is my list of possibilities:
a. frugality and the desperate home decorator
b. Cathlolic and atheist, happily married
c. our most recent move/home
d. the skirts/dresses only movement
e. how insane topic 'd' makes me
f. realizing that we don't like Sonlight
g. converting to Catholicism
h. the pursuit of a different homeschool curriculum
i. my feelings about unschooling
j. gulp....I think I miss working
k. the fruits of following through with an overscheduled life

What do you think? Where should I start?
