we've been at it 3 whole days.
this homeschooling thing.
i want to weep with gratitude for the Lord's direction.
i had always known my oldest struggled with math.
i used to sit for an hour a night reteaching it when he was in public school!
but even with all that,
i got the reports he was doing 'average'.
doing his work.
today i felt kicked in the stomach when i asked him to do an assignment,
and he didn't know how to do it.
(it involved #s)
i know i had gone over this with him.
2 years ago!
i showed him the way his homework had said.
he had got it done.
i didn't look back.
he never actually got it!
these last years he has sat through countless instructions,
staring timidly at papers with the anxious feeling of never knowing what he was actually doing.
i researched another way to teach it.
threw aside the 'workbook' for the day.
and taught him.
after 10 minutes,
he lit up.
he said "oh, i get it!"
and looked so stinkin' proud.
this is it folks.
this is me walking in affirmation.
i could feel the Lord's presence around us today.
His conviction came alive in my heart fully.
this is the path i am to walk.
for how long i don't know,
but i'm walking it.
there will be days.
i'll probably have to come reread this post ;)
but i love knowing
we're right where we're supposed to be.
