Merry Christmas and Thank you!

Just wanted to wish each one a Merry Christmas.

Thank you for all the kind comments that you left after my last post. I am still in my first trimester, not far left though. I have really had a bumpy start to this pregnancy: ended up in the hospital twice. We’re praying that the baby survives everything that I’ve been through.

Homeschooling has been very challenging while I’ve been so sick.  My kids have learned a few important things though–how to do the laundry, how to make meals, how to do lots of cleaning. All things that I had tried to teach them before too, but now they have to do it in order for us to survive. So I think it’s a growing experience for them too. We’ve managed to do some math and some reading, but otherwise it has been purely unschooling.

I was afraid we wouldn’t have Christmas at our house, but some very lovely friends gave us a tree and helped the kids decorate it. I don’t know why that makes all the difference, but though there hasn’t been much preparation put into Christmas around here, having a tree and playing music has made it seem festive and happy.

So a very Merry Christmas to each of you and hopefully soon, I’ll be able to report on the fun things and learning that is happening around our home.

    I have thought about you every time I look at your blog and don't see an entry, hoping that you don't feel awful all the time. I hope you will start to feel better soon.

    Blessings

    Congratulations on your pregnancy ~ I'm so sorry that you haven't been feeling good. I think it's absolutely wonderful that your children are helping out so much! Building strong character traits & serving hearts is more important than learning how to write a cursive 'd' ~ wink! Your children are learning more now then they could in any book! You're in my prayers, EMichelle

    I'm sorry you're sick. I hope you feel better soon! I never had that kind of m.s. but I've read about a lot of women who have. I'm glad your kids and neighbors are pitching in and helping out!

    Congrats on the pregnancy. I really hope you feel better soon. I am sure it has been very difficult not being able to do what you want. Know that you are remembered. A happy New Year to you with God's blessings and tender care upon you.
