Why the Tree of Life?


Dusting Off

Well, we've definitely fallen off our Enki horse. Between house hunting (which is proving to be completely distracting to me) and nasty, violent, exhausting (but blessedly quick) stomach viruses, I barely know what day it is, let alone what we are supposed to be doing.

It was looking like Evan was going to miss getting the virus, but he got sick last night. We had been planning a trip to the ranch to set up a water tank, but one obstacle after another prevented us from being able to go, and we called it off on Friday. But, truly, thank God we weren't up there, because it would have been miserable for Evan to have been sick away from home. And hey, we still had gatorade, saltines and chicken noodle soup left on hand from when the boys and I were sick last week. Things have a way of working out, don't they?

I think I'll stay here on the ground for another day (or week) or so before I dust us all off, and we try to get back up on the horse. That saddle just seems pretty high right now.


  1. Thank goodness homeschooling can be so flexible for times like these!
    Sorry you've all been sick. Tim has been sick for a whole week (not stomach, but everything else). No fun.

  2. Oh, so sorry you all have been sick. That variety, in particular is no fun. No fun at all. Hope you all are better soon and home schooling always seems to get caught up one way or another. We've had 2 weeks ourselves with 2 different bugs. Holding you in the Light.

  3. don't be hard on yourself! we've also been fighting rounds of illness, and also trying to purchase our first house - it is complete insanity! we're lax on our homeschooling of late and the house is a mess. i have started keeping a list of what we DO "accomplish" in a day to remind me that my girls are learning SO much, despite my feeling less attentive than normal. there's grace and flexibility in homeschooling - thank goodness!
