Covid -19! Now is the time to home educate your children in South Carolina!

Covid 19!

Public school?

Private School?

Legally Homeschool?? Yes!!

The current pandemic has become a major concern for families with children possibly returning to public school for the 2020-2021 year. And now with the threat of the president cutting federal aid if schools don’t open up in the fall brings added concerns.

HERE IS THE QUESTION:

Since March until June 2020 you have been home educating your child(ren) by ‘force.’ Meaning YOU HAD TO oversee your child’s education while they have been home due to the pandemic – Covid-19.

What will home educating your child look like if you

Enjoy Time Together

It’s the end of June, and my time as a blog writer is coming to an end (at least temporarily). I have enjoyed writing to you guys each week sharing the things that have come into my heart. 

I won’t lie. It has been a challenge juggling all my mommy/wifey duties and doing this each week. However, it has been such a pleasure to have the chance to do something I love…something I miss. 

Thank you all for reading or commenting on my posts. I really pray that something was shared this past year that sincerely blessed you.

This has been a year of many challenges, changes, and unique opportunities for all of us. We have seen things change in ways we never thought we’d see. We have had to change the way we look at the world and question if things will ever be the same again.

As we move into the last part of this year, I pray that you all can find peace and joy in your homes and most importantly with your families. I had the chance to spend a recent Friday night out and about with my hubby and children, and we had a fabulous time.

We drove to an Amish restaurant about 40 minutes away and had one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Our little ones were good (for their ages lol) which made the meal even more enjoyable.

On our way back, we ran across a special little hidden gem which is very unique to South Carolina. We stopped at a place I read about in an article a year or two ago. It’s called God’s Acre Healing Springs. We spent some time learning the history of the Springs, tasted the water, and enjoyed the fireflies at dusk.

We didn’t go far away or do anything expensive. We didn’t have to plan a huge road trip or anything like that. We just spent time together enjoying each other’s company.

That’s what the remainder of this year needs to be for all of us. It needs to be a time filled with reinforcing family bonds and making positive meaningful connections. Just making the most of the time we have together right now. 

We don’t have to run to sandy beaches across the world or visit cities full of strangers to have a good time. If all you have is your family, a picnic lunch, or a local attraction, you already have more than enough. 

“Jehovah bless thee and keep thee;

Jehovah cause His face to shine upon thee, and favour thee;

Jehovah lift up His countenance upon thee, and appoint for thee — peace.

And they have put My name upon the sons of Israel, and I — I do bless them.”

Numbers 6:24-27 YLT

I’m most importantly a follower of Christ by who’s blood we believe there is salvation. We believe in biblical Truth only. Being led by the Spirit of God, we seek to raise our family by that Truth. I am a wife of 8 years, and mom to 8 wonderful children ages 7 years-1 year. We have been homeschooling for 2 years officially (7 if you include preschool). I enjoy music, gardening, and learning to live a healthy, non-toxic lifestyle.

Fun Food for Summer

Summer is here and outdoor grilling season is upon us. If you’re like me, you’re always looking for a new and tasty dish for friends and family to enjoy at each bbq. Here’s a quick and easy recipe for you to try that I know will be a crowd pleaser.

A House Divided

“If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.” Mark 3:25

Do you know what that means? It means that any group that should be unified will crumble and fall if they are divided by their differences (real, manipulated, or perceived). I don’t get political or regurgitate the news simply because most politics are smoke and mirrors, and the news functions as an entertaining puppet, not a tool to inform. However, when certain events take place, it’s difficult to not talk about them.

It’s Time for a Break

I don’t know about you guys, but I am tired. This has been a year of all types of strange ups and downs. I am truly spent. I’m so thankful that we have been able to endure this far. I’m also grateful to meet many milestones and goals.

Now I want a break! I need a break. I think we all do. I know most are going back to work or are finding work. So, taking some time off may not be in your immediate future. However, we can all  find some ways (big or small) to relax.

I’m Expecting Great Things

We have gone through a major crisis these last few months. Many call it epic or unprecedented. (Yet the bible tells us there’s nothing new under the sun.) In most of our lives, we have never endured anything quite like this before.

I have found in the midst of all this I am expecting something great! We learned many weeks ago that we are expecting baby number 9. Last week, we discovered it was a boy. We are all excited about this new addition to our family.

Build that Immune System

Even in my infinite wisdom, I sometimes find I have nothing to talk about. (Ha) So, I’m going to share more of what I love…FOOD! 

As businesses open and lock downs are lifted soon, we will have more contact with others and may find ourselves in contact with more illnesses (not just Covid-19). So to prepare for that, let’s spend some time boosting and feeding our immune systems.
