Perhaps I'm Nesting.

I usually start "nesting" right about now. I'm 34 weeks pregnant, tired, and stressed. But do I feel the need to get down on all fours and scrub the floors? Have I turned into a dusting fanatic? Am I reorganizing closets and sorting through clothes? NO!!!!! And to think that for the past four pregnancies, that is what I am doing right about now.

Here is what I am doing. I'm planning out our school schedules, organizing our school room, making new learning spaces, working on lesson plans, making school supply lists, ordering books, working on library lists, etc., etc., etc. Why?? Because I'm freaking out about school!! I'll have a 2nd grader, kindergartner, a preschooler, a toddler, and a newborn! That means that I'll be teaching 3 kids!!!

I want things to run smoothly. I don't want to take time off from teaching. Yet I don't know if I'm being realistic. I've had such great luck in the past with all my children being wonderful babies. I'm kind of expecting that this time around won't be any different. But I still want to have everything organized and ready to go. I seriously doubt that I'll want to spend a day working on lesson plans while being sleep deprived. I would rather nap!

In the end, the best thing I can do is PRAY and have faith that God will not give me anything that I can't handle.

The beauty of homeschooling is that we can take a break when our family needs it. And they get so much more at home than they could ever get at "real" school. We have three and one on the way in February, so I know that there will be interuptions this year. God will bless you and your family for choosing life again and again. He is in-charge and He will make your school year be exactly what it should be. After all He choose you to raise and school your beautiful children. You'll get done what He wants you to get done this year. Enjoy that beautiful new baby. This time will pass so quickly. We will pray for you and your family during this transition time.
