Unschooling Snapshots: Growing up
This is one of the reasons I have cut back on the work I am doing.
Our oldest is in a place where she needs her mom more and more often.
We are spending a great deal of time talking about where she is, where she has been, and where she wants to go.
She is growing up quickly. She knows her struggles and is trying to rectify those areas.
She is seeking wisdom, learning to be quiet and wait (a hard lesson for this child who was born talking constantly).
She is slowly gaining it and constantly struggling with herself, trying to get where she is going, trying to grow closer to God.
It is a two steps forward one step back process and it is time consuming and a joy.
A beautiful way to describe the transition you are walking through.
What a cutie. And what a lucky girl to have you for her mama. 🙂
If not for your wonderful picture arrangement, I would have thought you were talking about me.
What a blessing to have a mom willing to take the time to help her along in her journey. 🙂
wow, she’s a doll. love her hair. seems like the two of you have a really special relationship.
