So, my husband and I made it home safely from our trip to San Diego. It was so wonderful and to be honest a much needed break from everything here. It was great to see my brother and family and I was really spoiled not having to care for the children for several days who by the way were fine:) Alhamdulillah.
Unfortunately, I’m have to admit I am having a difficult time getting back into the swing of things here. Despite my body being here, my mind is still in San Diego. And those of you with a large family know that you have to hit the floor running regardless. As soon as I got back there are Girl Scout meetings to attend and soccer and field hockey games to prepare for. By the way, Jamilah and Jennah did wondefully in their first field hockey game and both of them even scored points.
Sadly, I did loose my phone on the flight, so all of the pictures from this year’s homeschooling are lost. I am not as concerned with having them for the evaluation as now that there are going to be 4 children to evaluate this year, I don’t think we will have time for them anyway. I am more saddened at the fact that we will not be able to have them for ourselves as the children get older. When we reflect over the pictures, it serves as a reminder of their learning despite our insecurities and our happy experiences together. May Allah replace them with something better. Ameen
Anyway, I am grateful to have made it home safely but truly trying to get my heart back into homeschooling. I don’t think it was the trip because I have been feeling this way for years, but the trip just exacerbated my feelings more so. Just going through the homeschooling motions and searching for inspiration.
