Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

Home again

Well, we're finally home again. We actually returned Saturday afternoon, but I haven't had a lot of time to blog. I'm trying to keep up my homeschool blog too, so I'm just now getting here. We spent the weekend just reveling in our time with Daddy, went to church and out to dinner. Karl had to be back in Miami for two days starting Monday, so it was a short weekend, but he came home Tuesday night. All the kids love their Daddy of course, but Emma is just riveted by him. She grunted and whined fr him to hold her most of the evening, and he complied as much as possible. He's so good with her....even if he does spoil her, just a little. ;)

This morning we had to be 30 minutes north by 9 a.m. for Logan and Hailey to start their year-end testing. It went fine and we made it there early...a small miracle I think! I got up earlier than the kids so I could be ready to go, they all got up and fed themselves, we prepared snacks, grabbed books to take (for them to read if they finished early), and Emma's diaper bag, flush with snacks. It was an easy drive if a bit long. Fortunately for us the last two days of testing are available at our church, which is only 5 minutes away, so next week it will be a quick and easy drop-off and we can get back here to let Emma nap and Corbin can do some school work with me. While we waited for them to finish we explored the church...it was the main campus for our church (we attend a satellite church where we watch the pastor on screen each week). We made a purchase (rather large :0) at the bookstore, had a snack from the cafe, and let Emma play a bit on the floor of the cafe. She visited with another baby and a couple of nice ladies.....quite the quick one when she's crawling! Then, we stopped at Chick-fil-a for lunch to bring home since it was on the way.

Emma is now napping, the kids are all reading quietly, and I may actually have time to lie down.....whether I will do it is the question. I am tired, so maybe....
