Going for a un with my big girl...
Funny how those words actually mean so much. How being less is actually being more.
I can remember when my mom was just a mom of three. Homeschooling and having adventures and living life with us. I think those are the best memories of my childhood. I often refer to those days as "the golden years". Not everything was perfect, and not everything was happy all the time, but when I think about the kind of mom I want to be, what kind of life I want for my girls, that is it.
My biggest challenge is the internet. It can be so so so good and have so much help and information... But it can be so so so time sucking too. I need to be careful about that... I am better when I strictly limit my internet time. Right now it is rest time so I am ok... But I have to be careful because even good intentions can lead me astray.
For now, we are figuring a lot of things out. We've started homeschooling and it is going great. I want to get on more of a routine with housework. Since we live with my parents, I dont do really any of the cooking, so I feel like I should be able to get in a laundry and cleaning rhythm. I have been working on decluttering to make everything easier and flow better.
We are also going back and forth to NC a lot. We have the eight hour drive down to an art (art can still be messy lol) and I am hoping to do a post about road trips with kids pretty soon. Now that I am not working, we have a lot more freedom and I am looking forword to the adventures ahead.
God is good. I love my life!
