Work in progress

That's what I feel like today; a work in progress. I have tons of things I need to get accomplished but motivation is far from me this morning. We have school work to dig into today but I have to take Preacher to the doctor in a few to see if they can fix an old injury that the workers comp doctors didn't fix a few years ago. It has never healed and causes him so much pain. Our school work we have to do today can't be taken on the road with us so maybe later today we will watch some more of our movie we are viewing for social studies this year. We got the free dvd from the History channel; America the story of us. We really love it to be honest. We have all learned so much from it. I like how it adds little details that you might not learn from history books. That has been what we looked for all our years of homeschooling. We search out the little things that might not be common knowledge. Makes things lots more interesting that way.I am finding that in some areas we lean toward some unschooling tendencies as we go along our journey lol.
I have tons of work to do for church also. I have to make a new folder for our JR church paperwork because mine seems to have grown legs and walked away. I like keeping track of attendance and who brought their Bibles to church and who read every day. They get to earn prizes for that and for volunteering to do things like leading in prayer, holding flags for the pledges and stuff like that. We have some great kids at our church. VBS time will soon be upon us. Already it seems that this year is flying by. I couldn't wait til Spring and warmer weather got here but now the days are just slipping away. That's what happens when we wish time away I guess.
I have to go take the COMPASS test soon. I must admit that I am feeling a little nervous. I will be so disappointed if I do all of this and the Nursing program doesn't accept me. I will leave it in the Lord's hands though and be content in the knowledge he holds my future. I believe I am doing what He would have me to so no worries if I move inside His will :) I love being a SAHM who homeschools. It has brought me great joy over the years.But I won't be homeschooling forever. My children are growing up and I would like to be able to be a financial helpmeet to my DH.He has worked so hard over the years  so that I could be home with our children. He is a great man and I love him so much more for all the sacrifices he has made for us.Maybe once I am out of school and working he can slow down some and enjoy more time with his kids. He has several health issues and a slower pace would be good for him. He would make a great homeschool Dad lol
Well readers, I must be moving along. My hair won't brush itself lol so I best get busy. Have a great day everyone. Blessings! ~ Nikki

I hope your hubby gets to feeling better. We have that history movie at our house as well. We have not watched the whole thing yet. We watch them in parts and are still not very far along...but have enjoyed what we've seen thus far. Hope you have a wonderful day there.
