Had a fun day going to the Mothering Matters picnic. Adelia, your mom is so super sweet! I enjoyed talking to her, and I hope she can move back from Denver.
It was nice to talk to Jennifer, too, and meet her little kiddos. And I do mean "little." You've got some petite little munchkins! :-) Your little boy reminds me of my friend October's son, Diego.
As I walked around chatting with people and playing with the kids, I realized just how many people I've met through Suzanne. Girl, you have a LOT of connections. I guess that's because you are so sweet, funny, generous, and very humble. You laugh everyday at everything, including yourself. I'm trying to take a lesson from that. Anyway, I appreciate you making me feel so welcome in all of your circles.
Even in the homeschooling group, I had felt alone for a long time. I thought I was the youngest mom doing it, the most inexperienced. I lacked confidence. It didn't help that many of my well-meaning friends were very defensive about the public schools, so I couldn't really talk about any difficulties I was having with home education.
But I feel like God has answered so many of my prayers: for peace with our decision, headway with schooling, enthusiastic kids who want to learn, and wonderful friends who encourage and comfort and give advice. I love you all. I appreciate you all. Thank you, Suzanne, for expanding my circle and making me feel like such a wanted part of everything. :-)
And, of course, now here are a few of my park pictures!
