You can do it, Mom!

I read this li'l bit of encouragement this morning, written by a homeschooling mom regarding teaching handwriting:

"Keep persevering. He (or she) will need those skills. Sometimes the best weapons in a homeschool mom’s arsenal are a thick skin and a persistent attitude!"
-Gretchen Roe

Yes!  I needed to remember that!!! :)  This golden nugget can be applied to any area of homeschooling or parenting!

My son, the animal lover

"Mom! Look!  I found a slug!" he says as he ascends the stairs from the basement.

Great, I think to myself.  What kind of disgusting creature did he find down there now?

I start to reach for a paper towel, when he proudly shows me his prized slug—and it really is a slug—which he is holding in his hands.  Which he found. In. Our. Basement.  Gross.

So I made him suggested that he put it into a container... and then wash his hands.

He adores the darn thing!  "I'm going to call him Slimy!" he says.  Yuck.

User error

I learned something important about sunblock today.  When it says on the back of the bottle that you should reapply it every 2 hours, they aren't just being over-precautious. 

I think they really meant it.  Looks like Mom won't be hanging out at the pool for a few days. :(

Look who lost a tooth!

Ta-da!  Finally Ryan lost his first tooth.  (Note that the permanent tooth is already right there behind it!)  It has been wiggly for so long, I finally convinced him to let me pull it out for him.  (I had to use a scrap of paper towel to grasp the slippery little thing!)  He is quite pleased with this new milestone. :)

Mothers Day

I thought this was really appropriate!

Daily connection!

When a believer does not depend on God to meet his daily needs, his love for God grows cold.  This is why we should read our Bibles and connect with God every day!!
