    This was a week of tremendous “wins” for Teacher Appreciation Week. Saturday, my husband and I went with our oldest son (age 20) to register him for classes at Lincoln Christian University, where he will be transferring in August with a full-tuition scholarship and a nearly perfect 4.0 GPA from our local Jr. College. I went to the Clean Water Festival on Monday with my 2 youngest sons (age 12 and 9). Really fun and interesting field trip! Then, today I went shopping with my 18 year old for graduation party supplies for his upcoming graduation on May 20th.

    I would like to be appreciated for all of the work I put into homeschooling. Some people assume it’s an “easy” job when it is anything but easy. Knowing my children’s education sits on my shoulders can be mentally exhausting. I wish someone would say, “Go take a llong, hot bath. You deserve it.”
