Released

I did it. I released myself from the overwhelming burden of having to read all those wonderful, good books to my children. And they were sooooooo excited to be introduced to the quiet time shelf. Oh, never fear, you lovely reading readers, you. I don’t plan to stop reading to the children, but now I can concentrate on reading to them stuff they can’t read/can’t read and comprehend at the same time. This may be the single best schooling decision I have ever made, and today I am really grateful to accept that I just can’t do it all. Sometimes the good really does get in the way of the great. Perhaps without feeling like I have to cram all this reading in, I can take more time to just enjoy being with my children. Thank you, Lord. I’m breathing a big sigh, but its a sigh of relief.

Next up, folding a couple loads of laundry, and that kitchen counter.
