uggghhh. Things have been so poopy around here lately!! Honestly! The attitude here (my own) has been not. good. I'm slowly working on the deeper reasons (something about my anchor being in our God rather than family, church family, you, or any other circumstances) but for some short-term peppiness in order to help things along we're doing "30 Days of Happy"! Which means that for 30 days we are going to focus on being happy and positive and doing things that bring us joy.
I'm so excited to do this! I don't really have an exact plan, but I have a few ideas to get started. For example: homeschool? Not doin' it!! (partaaaaay!) OK, we'll definitely be learning during this time, but not as formally as we usually do. We're doing more hands-on stuff and less textbook. Rediscover the joy of learning. Paige is thrilled to death! We're also going to be putting up some good verses about joy and gratefulness around the house to keep it fresh in our minds.
I'll be blogging our adventure, so hopefully you'll come along for the ride and maybe be cheered a little yourself! Goodness knows we all need it. Between you and me, I think this world is just really depressing sometimes. So much darkness. So many meanies. But we can't let them win. Light is more powerful than darkness.
Wish us luck! We're officially starting tomorrow, so I'll begin blogging about it on Friday. See you then!
Love you! :o)
