A Tale of Ten Homeschoolers- The Week Everything Came Crashing Down

You know how whenever things seem to be going great, something awful usually happens and your world comes crashing down around you? Well, that’s where we’re at right now. So, while I could write about trips to the creek, math practice, and crafts completed, this is not going to be that post.

On Sunday after church, I took a slight detour to return a library book and was in a car accident. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but our van- our only vehicle- was totaled. What this means for a family of twelve living on one income is that we have no transportation for my husband to get to and from work. So, this has been the bulk of our education this week- survival.

To top things off, our homeschool evaluations should be scheduled soon, and I haven’t even gotten around to starting our portfolios yet. Thankfully, our evaluator is very relaxed about that sort of thing. Come to think of it, I have to rewrite all of our resource lists again because I lost all of those files when my MacBook crashed. Fabulous.

This is probably going to be my shortest post ever because I’m honestly so stressed out right now that I can’t even think straight. If you happen to think of it, please pray for our family. We could sure use it right now.

I'm Shelly, a Christ-following, homeschooling Mom of eleven children ( okay, not ALL children. My oldest is 23.) I met my husband right after graduation, and we've been together ever since. Though my life can be hectic at times... okay, ALL the time, I wouldn't change it for anything.
