I think this about sums up my year…from my 10 year old sweetheart. I am going to have to start her her own blog! She loves to write. I heart her little heart.
Homeschool has been really fun this year. You get to hang out with your family a lot more. It does make crazy changes to your family though. We have another year of homeschool ahead of us next year and I think I will handle it well. I remember the first day of homeschool last year. I was really excited, but had no idea what it was going to be like. I had a lot of changes going on really fast. I am going into 5th grade this year and I am excited. But again, I feel like, what will it be like? More changes or what? Well those questions will be answered throughout the year, but at this time in life, I will focus on enjoying my summer. I am not going to worry about school and be nervous that I will never be at my old school again. Speaking of my old school, I went to Bradshaw Christian School. I really love that school. I had so many friends that I trusted and I loved to hang out with. A few of those people I have seen this year. They are really really good friends. In my life though, my friends come right after family. It is still hard that I can’t see them as much as I used too. Sometimes I get really sad and little tears come out, but I know that God is with me and that makes me feel much better. God is before anything else. God, family, and friends are the most important things to have in my life. Even though I am not at my old school, I still have them all. So I guess, homeschool is not all that bad 🙂

So basically this sweet 10 year old social butterfly has got it. She desperately misses her old school, her friends, the activities, the just being together with lots of people. That is something that can not be duplicated at home. Sure, you can add activities and such, but it is never going to be the same.
So what does this girl do? Look for the positive….being with her family. Accept the situation…she still has her Jesus, family, and friends. Above all else, trust and know that God is with her.
Yes I cried when I read this and my heart melted with happiness. I am so proud of how she has handled this change in her life. As they say….”that which won’t kill you, can only make you stronger.”
Now there is just 24 school days left until summer.
