Homeschool Mom

I am a home school mom. I chose this path because I feel like I was called to do so. I never thought I would even contemplate that role!

I’m not your typical housewife, you know, the one that’s organized and appears to have everything together. Oh, no, I’m quite the opposite. I have piles of laundry in baskets — clean — wrinkling by the minute. I have an overbearing stack of dishes in the sink — the load in the dishwasher is clean. I have grand ideas for responsibility charts, science experiments and art projects — all waiting to be done. I have folders of recipes on Pinterest still waiting to be made.

I may not be your typical Betty Crocker, picture perfect housewife. But here’s what I am. I am a mom of three very adventurous boys. Outside of God and my husband, they are the loves of my life. I am the best mom for the job. I am their biggest influence. They look up to me. They depend on me. And because of all those things, I am their best teacher. That is why I stepped into the role of home school mom, and I do not regret saying yes to the job no matter where this journey will take me. We will see how this role unfolds …

My Daddy

Happy Father’s Day!!!

***

My daddy taught me many things

He taught me how to fly

He believed in me when others wouldn’t

He’d comfort me when I’d cry.

***

My daddy thought the world of me

He said I would do great things

He was always in my corner

Excited for what life would bring.

***

My daddy cheered me on

He was my biggest fan

He always saw the best in me

He knew God had a plan.

***

Now I am away from home

With a family of my own

But he still believes in me

Even though I’m grown.

***

My children now adore him

He teaches them to fly

My boys love spending time there

Which brings tears to my eyes.

***

My daddy means the world to me

I love him through and through

He is the best dad I could ask for

His belief in me I will live up to.
