overwhelmed by all your homeschooling info- but it is awesome- kids are sponges fill them up!!! and I really admire your last post. sometimes we just need it all hang out, I think it helps others feel that they are not alone in their thoughts/struggles, and anyone who would judge you... well we know their opinions don't matter. of course I know that's alot easier to day than to follow. I am also on my journey of learning who GOD says I am now and not my past, past situations, past relationships, past everything. a constant journey! but I am thankful I am in it and kwowing I going in the right direction this time woo-hoo! love you, Katie
