Up and Running

Officially feeling better. That's based on the fact that I no longer feel like I've been hit by a Mack truck. That's official in my book!

So at 4:30 in the morning I found myself at the computer creating a daily school schedule (hey, better late than never I always say!) I love putting it all down in hours and minutes and finding that it really is possible. Somehow it puts my somewhat choleric/sanguine mind at ease. However, when unveiling the prototype to my students their initial response wasn't favorable. My melancholy daughters immediately saw large amounts of black print and felt overwhelmed. The phlegmatic type just kind of shrugged her shoulders. And my little sanguine guy just wanted to see his name somewhere. Well, I was hoping it would be exciting to them, but I can see they don't view it as I do. Hopefully it will prove to be a valuable tool in the long run.

Our new schedule allows for a 20 minute walk each day. This was the perfect inauguration day for such a habit. And it was doubly exciting since it was my first "walk" (i.e. walking just for the sake of walking) since my injury last December. Wonderful!

I've been reflecting freshly upon Proverbs 22.6 -- Train up a child in the way in which he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. I am newly challenged to be mindful of what my children are doing, how they are acting, and what responses are allowed. I will be sharing some thoughts soon. God is so very faithful.


Just an additional "for your information" comment:
i.e. means id est or "that is"

Merrick is too funny! I could just imagine his bright grin when he found HIS name on the "schedule!"

The things that you write are so wonderful. I have posted one of your articles on my website, and also put the link to your blog. You are so encouraging, that I had to let other homeschoolers in our group know. I hope that is alright.
May God Bless you. Jaime

I also had to add that my "choleric" son would be the one who would be, shall we say, "ready and available" to make sure that everyone else in the home is adhering to the new task at hand!!
I've got 'em all!
