Things have been a little stressful around here lately, my mom being in the hospital (she's okay now!) and one of my very bestest friends in the whole world's husband passing away. I hope that life stays boring and calm for a few weeks :) But honestly these are the times that grow your spirit, help you be better, stronger more in tune with what is important. So life goes forward and we embrace it with all of its hard times and amazing times with gratitude and thanksgiving for the miracle that it is.
In other related news, we're seriously thinking about pulling our daughter out of public school. But holy moly what a commitment that will be time wise from Dave and I! The truth of the matter is we're doing 2 hours a homework a night as a family anyway most nights. I aboslutely think that school works for most a lot kids but I also believe with all my heart it tears other kids to absolute shreds and you realize that your 12 year old daughter probably has an ulcer. They come out of school half the person they could have been because their personality doesn't cope well with the institution. What's a mama to do? I want the very best for her, I want her to be disciplined in her studies and strive for excellence, go the extra mile. But-- in a more creative environment that suits her personality that inspires her to all that she can be.
Anyway I know I keep saying I want to do better with blogging (I really do!) but perhaps I should just accept the fact that I do it when I can and for now that has to do! :D
I'm way behind in sharing some of my art journal pages! Seemed like a great calming activity on a Sunday night!
