My oldest daughter will graduate this year. I have been busy with planning the graduation activites as she is homeschooled. We are having a party for her in June and I am thrilled that she made it through. I have one more to go and she will be awhile yet. I know that she will learn a lot if she applies herself to the work.

I was never able to carry any children Full term otherwise I would have a 22 yr. old, a 19 yr. old, a 17 yr. old and a 13 yr. old. I am sure with your having a child graduating from High School makes you feel old, but you should be proud for seeing her be able to graduate and start a New life on her own. Wishing your daughter the Best.

Thanks! I am sorry that you never got to experience all of the joys that come along with motherhood. Some people are not able to do that and it is sad. I can't imagine the pain that you must have gone through with the loss of four children. My prayers and thoughts are with you.

No, it hasn't. We took our children out of public school to homeschool them and I am glad that we did. I think that it is good for them. My youngest one is really struggling with math and reading but we will get it. I think that she is working harder and stronger than she ever has. I just think she is slow at learning facts.

Thank you! It has been a journey and it has been fun for the most part. We have learned so much together about things that neither of us knew and I am so glad that we have. I will keep up the work with my youngest and I know it will happen eventually.
