Little Changes, Big Difference

Trying to get to the bottom of it, Gabrielle and her husband made a few changes around the house: they pulled her out of preschool, removed television and got rid of most of her toys. The result was a night-and-day change in her behavior. Gone was the anxiety, the tantrums, the anger. In its place, Gabrielle had a content 4-year-old who learned how to entertain herself (and her little sister).

Decisions

He went home that night pondering the school and started praying about it. He felt very very pressed that we should put the boys there instead of homeschooling them. The more he prayed about it, the more he felt like that was the right decision.

A Fresh Outlook & A New Schedule

I had my day and my week planned down to the minute. My home ran like a well oiled machine. Things would interrupt that smooth operation — an out of town trip, the early stages of garden growing when you have to be outside tending the garden constantly, a night with no sleep and a cranky child — but for the most part, it was all good. For three years I excelled at the housekeeping part of homemaking.

A New Experience

Our church has an awesome preschool through elementary school. I checked into it to know what my options were and discovered that they have a part time program on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. But the more we looked at that option, the less we liked it. I home school preschool, and we have invested a lot of time, prayer, and money into building our preschool curriculum. Consequently, I didn’t want them in a preschool environment two days a week on top of what we were doing at home. That would seem counter-productive.

♫ There Are Twelve Months in a Year ♫

In the hallway outside of the kids’ rooms, there hangs a calendar.

I bought it in a teachers’ supply section of an office store. It was designed to hang on a bulletin board so that you could use staples or thumbtacks to hang it up.

This hangs on the hall wall. We use tape. I tried to use that sticky gum stuff so that it wouldn’t rip the base or the numbers, but Johnathan ate it.
