Lately, I have moments where I have to stop myself and wonder how it is that I haven’t burst yet!
There’s been SO much happening in the lives of our family lately. I wasn’t able to share any of it for quite a while but now I can begin to share a little. One thing at a time.
I am heading to the airport with our son early tomorrow morning. We have to get up in just 6 hours and 9 minutes actually, but who’s counting right?
He’s heading out to the prairies. He’ll be meeting my husband and spending a very long weekend with him. This will be Joshua’s first time to the prairies, other then the times we’ve driven through, or flown over, back and forth between Ontario and British Columbia.
On Monday Joshua is being interviewed for an apprenticeship program.
To say I am excited for my son would be to put it VERY mildly.
I can’t share a whole lot of details about what the program is exactly, but it’s in the mechanics field for a large company. He hasn’t actually gotten the ‘job’ yet, so I’m trying not to get TOO excited, but they were very impressed with his resume.
Let me just say to homeschooling mom’s everywhere, if you’re ever in doubt of what you’re doing with your children, stop, because if you truly care about your children’s education at all, you have no reason to fear.
I don’t often brag about my kids, I probably should brag about them a whole lot more, but I guess I figure their lives speak loudly enough. However, I have to say that my son’s resume even impressed me.
He has done so much living, and learning, in his short 18 years! Anything he wants to know, because he’s been homeschooled, he’s had the time to figure it out. If he couldn’t figure it out, either he, his father, or myself found someone he could work alongside with so he COULD figure it out.
So often homeschool moms struggle with fears of doubt that weigh so very heavy on them daily. It’s a big responsibility to be in ‘charge’ of your children’s education!
But… I wouldn’t trade the responsibility of home education for anything.
So, tomorrow Joshua heads out. My husband is picking him up in the afternoon and they’ll have a few days of ‘fun’ before Monday. On their way ‘home’ from the airport they are going to do some sight seeing. On Saturday, I’m not sure what they’ll do but I’m sure my husband will want to show our son around town.
Graydon (dh) has said more then once that he’s sure all the ‘town folk’ must think he’s some crazy person with an imaginary family that he constantly talks about, yet they’ve never seen hide nor hair of in the seven months he’s lived there. Now he’ll have some proof that this family really does exist and he’s not some crazy person after all!
I had better stop here. I have to leave the house in less then 6 hours now.
Sleep… what’s that?
