To say that the first semester of our school year was a blur, would be an understatement. I have taken on the role as Director for Classical Conversations, and have started a new community in our small town here. My family needed some change, and this just felt right. It has been a lot of work, but worth EVERY single bit of it. In fact, it is the best thing I have done for my children in a very long time.
We adore the families that God has brought to our CC community. Everyone fits perfectly and my children are thriving. My husband is tutoring Foundations, and I am tutoring Essentials in addition to being the director. We are never bored that is for sure. My children have learned more than I thought possible in this first 12 weeks of class. Our entire family looks forward to each and every Monday. There are CC communities all of the country. If you are interested you should really go and visit a campus close to you, I promise you won’t regret it!
We are now in our winter break for our schooling this year. However, it seems as though my calendar is overwhelmingly full. I was hoping to have a few weeks to rest, but with all the Christmas parties and activities that doesn’t look like it will happen. It’s the time of year that we are start reflecting on the things we would like to change for the upcoming year, and are grateful for the things that went right for us. I just want to encourage you to enjoy every moment of this Holiday season. The one thing that I have realized is that life is a blur. We celebrated our baby turning 1 this week. Where on earth did this past year go? It seems life just keeps flying right on by in high gear. The one thing that I want to change for the upcoming year is to stop and enjoy the small moments a bit more. My kids are getting older, and I want them to remember the sweet memories of our family.
So, even though things are all a hustle and bustle right now, don’t forget to stop and spend some quality time with those closest to you. Especially your little ones, for they won’t be little but for a tiny little season of your life.
