about to take their showers after their Fencing class this evening. Muddee and I stayed home to homeschool and practice cello while Robs brought Honey and SLED to Fencing.
a mindful approach to parenting from a book bearing the same name:
A Mindful Approach to Parenting: Insights on Raising Our Children with Wisdom, Awareness, and Acceptance by Geoff Bell-Devaney. This book contains hundreds of timeless quotes on the art of mindful parenting. Here are some of them:
lack of energy and laziness! May is always the busiest time of the schoolyear. After having such a hectic and tiring month, assisting Honey with her transcript requirements and end-of-the-schoolyear evaluations -- not to mention helping to organize this year's Homeschool Graduation for her and the other high school seniors -- I just wanna chill and spend the summer doing my stuff -- like:
- sleep late at night (just love the peace and quiet!)
- sleep in till late in the morning
- blog (which I haven't done in a long while)
- read aloud to the kids
- watch movies with them
- have our discussions, and
- basically, just unschool to our hearts' content without having to do anything else.
But the house also needs picking up, and cleaning, and re-organizing, and I'm just too lazy to do it before the cleaners come, before we have our friends over next Saturday for Honey's Graduation Party! Help, Lord -- give me the energy I need to get everything ready!
Thank You, too, for awarding her with the $1,000 scholarship from the Knights of Columbus at OLH, as well as their annual award for "Outstanding Young Woman of the Year" for all her service and volunteer work! What a wonderful way to end her homeschool years!
