Let Them....

Let them be happy...

let them play...

let them enjoy...

the fun in today.

It was 8:30 and time for Bible,
but it was SILENT in the house.  Kalyn and I kind of held our breath as we sat on the couches...her with her book, and me with a bible study book that I have been wanting to get into on prayer.  The children were being SO GOOD playing outside together, and even though it was time to start school, I continued to sit there on the couch enjoying this rare moment to study the Bible and journal.  Kalyn looked up after 20 minutes or so and asked if I was starting school yet.  I whispered “No, they are being so good".  A few minutes later she whispered “It is so quiet.”.  

Well, it is now 9:40, and I am still hesitant to bring them in...
but I really should start school...
Goodness, what’s a home school mother to do?
Should I call them all in now?
Should I tip toe over to that sewing project?
May be I should bake some cookies?
Or read a book?
Play in Adobe Elements with some photos?
Noooo, I think I’ll just go out on the trampoline with them for awhile.


  1. Good call! They'll remember that mom jumped with them. Time we spend teaching our little ones joy is time well spent.

  2. The best choice Mama.

    I love those moments with my little ones.

    Blessings and love,

  3. LOVE it!

    I, too, love the flexibility of homeschooling. They may not have been reading their books this morning, but they were all certainly learning ... about each other ... about God's creation in your beautiful backyard ... about physical education ...

    Let them learn ...

    Laurel :)

  4. Isn't it sweet when the kids just enjoy being together!? But really, Shonni, while I appreciate that you would want to join in the fun, do you think that in light of recent events, you should be on a trampoline? ;o)

    hugs and love!
