Sunday Visit: My Substitute Teacher

A few weeks ago our friend, Emily, came to stay with the kids while we went on our trip to visit Dimples. The trip was canceled due the unfortunate discovery of a DVT in my leg, but thankfully Emily stayed and cheered us up with her presence. We had a marathon appointment with the hematologist that week and Emily ran the household, including homeschooling the youngest three.

They had a great day, as you will see, but we laughed so hard when we realized just what Emily had forgotten to do. Read along if you have a moment: Homeschooler.

We are having a very interesting weekend; hopefully I’ll have time to write more soon.

Have a wonderful Sunday, friends.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    "ran the household"… I should change my blog title to Proverbs 31 Woman. Clearly.

    I used to dream about homeschooling like that too! Now that I'm on my tenth year of it and have become too rigid in how I go about it, I once again find myself dreaming of long walks, baking cookies, and snuggling up with books. Maybe I should forget about the "school" for a while and get back my original plan – but first I have to do math, and grammar, and history…

    It was great to meet you at the retreat Lisa – You were a huge encouragement to me!

      I loved meeting you too, Erika. I also need to take more walks with my kids.
