It is Indian summer here in Alabama, and cooler nights have finally brought autumn's first blush to our woodland home.  The trees are slow to turn as summer lingers at our doorstep, kissing us a fond farewell.  It was a glorious summer for us - the best ever, I think.  And in God's great wisdom, mercy, and love, he gives us the gift of autumn to ease her passing.

Many of you have asked how the home school is going, and I am warmed by your thoughtfulness and caring.  To be very honest, it's harder than I thought it would be, and I knew it wasn't going to be easy.  Some days I feel quite overwhelmed, but other days I wonder why we waited so long to do this.  It's a tremendous commitment and responsibility, but like all things that are worth doing, the rewards far exceed the difficulties.  I feel so blessed to be able to home school my children, and I'm giving it everything I've got, so if I'm absent for long stretches, please forgive.  It's a lifestyle change, and I'm not sure how I will ever find time for regular blogging again anytime soon, but only time will tell.  Thank you for your visits and your kind words.  I am truly humbled by how many people I've never even met can be so kind and caring toward me and my family.  Bless you.  See you soon! xoxo
