Cool. Add three more kids to the weird category. Weird means:

Time with my Dad

A simplified life

More time as a family

That sounds SO weird.

When you choose to end EVERY chapter of your life with a semicolon, doors stay wide open. Stop putting the wrong punctuation on chapters. A simple ”mental” punctuation mark can change relationships, create awkwardness and stir up a whole lot of bitterness.

Beating to my own drum as I “skip my way through life” has always worked for me.

  • If I stumble, I get up skipping. It sometimes takes awhile, but I strive for victory.
  • I question decisions and situations briefly, but Jesus reminds me he created me to skip, right on through those barriers.

Watch our journey, pray for us, don’t think too much about our decision. We don’t even have time for that! I promise not to dissect your decisions either.

At the end of the day, making hard decisions to do what is best for our family is how we roll.

Enjoy the journey with us.

Please stay tuned for Brynlee’s video about this decision!!

    My son and his wife have recently made the decision to homeschool their 7 year old son who has been diagnosed with a spectrum disorder. They are nervous and anxious about it, but feel it was the right thing to do for him. I forwarded your blog page to them and told them to view the video clip. I think they will find it inspiring, as I did. Good luck to you all! You are amazing.

    Hi Kristi….First, you are glowing, and that IS wonderful! I want to share that Josh’s wife Teresa has been homeschooling their two boys for years? One is now in fourth, the other in seventh. Both boys are thriving. They have a wonderful Christian home life. Good luck to you, Mama Teacher!

    Kristi, take away the question mark from the statement about years and add a period. I had edited that sentence!!

I would love to hear from you. Your comments and shares are appreciated so much!
