Away

Reilly has spent most of the summer in Atlanta with my cousin and her husband, helping out with their three little girls. Apart from a little bit of home sickness at the beginning, she has fared well. When we go and get her, she will have been gone almost 6 weeks and I'm discovering that, although it's been nice to have NO ARGUING in the house, I'm really beginning to miss her. I can't wait to hug her neck!

Two days after we return from picking her up (a short 12 hour drive! Woot!) we will begin our 9th year of home schooling. How is it that we've been doing this for this long? Dang! Sometimes, I feel excited about this year because we're not involved in any type of co-op, which means there's no place that we have to be on any regular basis. This excited feeling is sometimes overtaken by panic because WE'RE NOT DOING ANY TYPE OF CO-OP THIS YEAR AND I'M ALL ON MY OWN AND I DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT I'M DOING AND WHO GAVE ME PERMISSION TO DO THIS, ANYWAY?
Yeah, it's a fun ride, lemme tell you!
It'll work out. It always does.
