I've really been beating myself up over my homeschooling or lack thereof over the past month.
"I'm so boring"
"I'm not doing enough"
"We are so behind"
"I'm such a bad Mom because I'm just not interested"
But today I had one of those moments where I realized I'm just not sucking as much as I think I am.
We were riding in the car to Grandma's house today where I was going to drop the kids off and head to a meeting that was causing me some stress, worry and doubt. So I let the kids know how anxious I was and asked my oldest to lead us in some prayers for their good ole mom.
Elijah started and his prayers were so wise and profound that I was totally blessed. And one right after the other, all the way down to 5 year old Gabe, they whipped out some heartfelt words and petitions that brought me peace and a sense of covering and a true pride in the little (and big) people they are.
And it suddenly hit me how much they HAVE learned.
I still kind of suck at the academic part lately but I'm pretty happy with the other stuff.
