These are glimpses into our homeschooling, marriage, parenting, and part time missionary life. Phew! I'm already out of breath. Join us on our journey and have some laughs along the way.

There is something demeaning and demoralizing about finding yourself kneeling in front of a little 2 year old, trying over and over to adjust their sock seams correctly while they cry and kick and shout that the seam hurts their toes. Every child raising book I have ever read streams through my thoughts: "Be patient." "Don't raise your voice." "Let her know that her feelings matter." And then, in the end, I am yelling, "WE HAVE TO GO! PUT YOUR SOCKS ON NOW!" So much for my Mother Teresa persona..... : )
