Empty Nest with my Homeschoolers

We talked about this day. We prayed and sought advice. We had long discussions.  This school year we finally walked into a new season for my older children: Sabrina and Matthew.  After 9 years of homeschooling, we have decided to take a new path for their education and bring them back to conventional school.  We did everything last minute. We let them take the exams last week of March. We enrolled them just before school orientation.  We bought their school needs the day before actual school. The truth is it was hard. It was hard for me to finally...

Fighting F.O.M.O.

In this digital day and age so many things are happening all at the same time. There are just so many events and there is just so many opportunities.  John and I are like the “seize the moment” kind of people. We always try our very best to invest in learning, in relationships and in serving.  But we also find ourselves very exhausted trying to be part of everything, everywhere.   Last year in particular, I would be invited to certain activities for let’s say homeschool that I would like to participate in.  As I look through my calendar,...
