A friend of mine mentioned how some blogs can be a bit discouraging because the blogger lists all kinds of wonderful, fabulous extraordinary things they do with their kids. It would appear that they might could possibly be super-mom. You know, I can understand that feeling! To be honest, I don’t need any*more* pressure put on me other than what I’m already putting on myself! (and well, truly I don’t even need what I put on myself!)
So, I started thinking about my own blog…am I real? Do I share struggles? Do I only share the great days we have? I think I do share struggles, but mostly concerning spiritaul and emotional things. (well, cause those things probably weigh on my mind more than anything else!) But, I want to be sure, completely sure, that all my readers know that when it comes to homeschooling I most certainly do NOT have it all together! LOL! In fact, I really wanted to drive this point home, so I thought I’d share a picture with you…
This is a picture of our school table from oh, um, 2 minutes ago.
Now, seriously, I wish I could stinkin’ BLOW this picture up to some huge size so that you can see how it looks in *my* eyes. This picture really doesn’t even do it justice, but trust me, there is paper and paper scraps everywhere. This table is just the epitome of where my kids are right now, but gosh does it drive.me.nuts. Very crazy. I’m soooo thrilled that my kids enjoy being creative. Cutting, pasting, coloring. Cutting out again. Did I mention they cut things out and leave tiny scraps of paper under that table like every 5 minutes?!?!
So, there you have it. I cannot keep up with the messes my kids make. Can anyone relate?!?!
