‘Mothers hold their children’s hands for a while, but their hearts forever’.
We homeschool for a season, but boy, do those seasons move by quickly. Two of my girls have now left the nest, but this week, we have them home again once more. Plus one, of course – we do always seem to have a ‘plus one’ floating around somewhere, don’t we?
This evening, we all attended Mass, and it was very special – it’s amazing how one can miss the simple things in life – like all hopping in the bus and heading off to church as a family, and then returning home to share the evening meal.
It’s wonderful to have our Rebekah here again, and even more wonderful to finally meet ‘her man’ – who, I think, is coping with our rather strange household very well! And the timing is perfect, as Jess has also now completed her studies, and is able to be with us as well.
This coming week, we shall be heading off to show Tim the sights of SA, spending time with friends at a BBQ, and no doubt catching up on a few movies we’ve all been waiting to see. And then, of course, there's Ultrastar, our new singing game (I may be in need of earplugs before too long, and my voice is already threatening to give out! ).
Our holidays have begun – time to put the feet up and relax!
