Homeschooling my children = self-less-ness

(This post is based on my comment of One Mom's Walk lastest post!!)          

I feel like I have been slapped upside the head so many times these last couple of weeks that I can't even see straight!! I have tweaked and tweaked, and things finally do seem to be falling into place. It is such a life change...a good one, but still a change.

The biggest thing that has slapped me upside the head is that I need to work on being more SELF-LESS. When I am less worried about my emails, talking on the phone, blogging, shutterfly, and facebook, it is much easier for me to sit and work with the boys, interact with the girls, etc. I've realized that my being unplugged is as important as them being unplugged.

Being "unplugged" helps me to be PLUGGED into them and allows me to enjoy them so much more rather than just trying to finish. I love My Father's World - I mean I really do enjoy what "we" are learning. I am enjoying researching with the girls, figuring out the time lines, etc. 

I want so much to live not miss the be selfless!!

Philippians 2:4,"Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others."

and whose interests are more important than our children??

Living intentionally,
