I love Advent and Christmas. My kids are all almost home, which won't happen every year. We run gleefully to church every day and hope that the guy leading all of those services knows how much he is appreciated. I think I will go buy him some oranges so he has a better chance of making it through without taking the fall of sickness this year.
Today, I am making out an update to son number two's transcript so he can continue on his way to working on his bachelors. I am so happy about that. Seriously. It is what he wants and it is finally happening. I'm just glad it is him who has come to this conclusion. Waiting and patience as our kids muddle through without putting the ultimate heat on, is sweet. I don't want to force or coerce my kids to do anything they don't have the heart for.
Me, I am happily practicing my horn and sort of restarting that aspect of my life. Playing the horn takes me to never never land. I suppose it is like taking happy drugs so my family mostly appreciates that. A happy mommy is a happy thing.
Oh, the Marine son, is home on Recruiters Assistant and working on finding some young folk to come in and see if the Marines has a place in their future. He knows more humans than his public school counterparts who were properly socialized.......this is sort of frustrating him as the home school stereo type of being inadequately socialized is said to him. Yes, that was bad grammar but hey, I am just rambling.
We are getting a new baby before Christmas - a baby grand piano will be blessing our living room. I am sooooo excited I can hardly stand it. I best get back to my dear son's transcript update and stop rambling for today.
