Strange Feelings

This morning I took Caroline, Melanie, and Hannah to school for the first time in two years. I had homeschooled all three one year and then just Caroline last year. I thought that it would be quite simple, but I was wrong. It is way too quiet around here. I miss them all and wish they were here. As a mother I need that constant noise of four sweet children around me. Yes, I know what am I thinking! Well by 3:30 the noise will return and all will be right in the world. I will quickly get used to the peace and quiet eventually but not all the way. Kimberly keeps me very busy with her inquisitive mind. I sure do love my children!

I imagine the difference between all three girls at home and at school was enormous. You'll get used to it, though. Enjoy our Kimberly time. We start tomorrow.

I too love the "white" noise made by children in our homes. Though tempted, I know better than to ask what do you do with your extra time. We miss you too, but glad you are happy. Anywhere you are makes the world a better place.
Love Sherrie

I understand your feelings completely. So many mom's into todays world can't wait for their kids to be somewhere, anywhere, except with them. I have never been that way, I love being with my children, and like you, need the "life" that they bring into my everyday. I am thinking of you and just know you are not alone and you are understood.

Those quiet afternoons become so special to the little left at home don't they? But it is strange at first and pulls on my heartstrings to have the others gone.
