One of Those Days

We’re over an hour late to start homeschooling. Today has been one of those days.

One of those days where I’ve heard an abundance of invitations to come play among sisters.

One of those days where they’ve found a way for all three of them to participate.

One of those days when toys cover the floor because they’re building a house set-up together, complete with decorated rooms.

One of those days when Hannah’s toddler self isn’t a disruption of play but a welcome addition.

One of those days when Abi’s preschool imagination is overflowing with kitty behavior ideas and an adventurous storyline is being scripted.

One of those days when Kindergartener Rachael is absorbing Abi’s imagination with a passion and dancing along to care for her “baby Hannah” and “kitty Abi”.

One of those days when they have just meshed and play has taken off in a beautiful enjoyment for all.


We’re an hour late. And we may be an hour and a half or two hours late before it’s all said and done.


See, today homeschooling is more about sisterhood than academics. Homeschooling is more about building an investment into each other that isn’t stemming from Mommy’s initiative, but their own desire to just be together. Homeschooling is about building memories of wonderful sister play that they’ll reflect on as “childhood” in years to come.


It’s wonderful to watch God knit them together… to witness their love grow and develop and mature as He intertwines their worlds.


– What a wonderful day. =)



Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
