But, you see, I love feeling connected. Connected by passions, commonalities, goals and even *gulp* failures. When I read your blogs, I feel connected to you. So perhaps, regardless of the content, and looking past my shortcomings, you might just feel a little bit more connected to me if I blogged too. So, for me-- and, for you, I'll give it another shot. Just have some grace, please. It probably won't be my last time falling off the horse. (Next time, just prod me like cowboys poke cattle. I think it'll work. Ask Pioneer Woman, she'd know.)
My heart is growing and changing and evolving in ways that I haven't been able to articulate yet. But below are just a few things that stir me up and make me smile (or cry). I'll try to touch on them all at some point.
Orphans and International Adoption
Debt & Student Loans
Writing and Research
Weird combo, huh? True though. I don't even like how disjointed that list is, but it'll do because it's honest. (Honesty and I might have to negotiate a little to make this union work in the future.) As for now, I'm off to read The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home by Jessie Wise and Susan Wise Bauer.
Question of the day: If you're a homeschooling mommy, what method has "clicked" for your family and why?
Discuss amongst yourselves. Not really, please discuss here! ;)
