quick update

Apr 5, 2012

I have a labral tear.

I need surgery.

Expensive surgery.

I am trying to hold on to faith and not slide over to fear…but some moments the fear takes over.

Tomorrow is Passover.


Passover is my very favorite holiday of the whole year. I cannot even tell you how much I treasure this celebration of God’s love and mercy for his children.

We have invited my Worldviews students and their parents to share our Seder with us.

This is a lot of work.

I think Keziah has been working all day long washing the special dishes, setting the table, making sure everything is just right.

I haven’t figured out how to lay down at the table yet. The table is about 14 inches off the floor and everyone else will be sitting on the floor. Unfortunately, I can’t sit. At all. Any ideas?

In spite of this ridiculous injury, I have decided to do a nationwide Home School Read-A-Thon. It is a lot of work. It is going to make a difference in the world and right now I feel like I am being served and served and served. This is an opportunity for me to help give back some goodness and bless others. If you would like to participate, just leave a comment and I will send the forms. It is open to everyone…not just homeschoolers, but I created it for home schooled students to be able to do something super cool, read a lot, earn books for themselves, and earn books for an organization in their area that needs books. Our local area is donating books to a homeless shelter. So excited about it!

Fisher and Annes are fascinated by the human body right now. They keep finding books about it and having me show them every.single.part.of.the.body. They love figuring out how their poop gets out of their body and where I am injured. Cracks me up to see how interested they are in anat and phys!

Brain spill done. You may now go back to your regularly scheduled lives.
