Where Oh Where has Mama Henley Gone?

Those who know me know that I love to write and communicate. The written word is a wonderful gift. Unfortunately, life has taken me by the tail and is just now loosening her grip on me! Mama Henley's house is never boring, and this blog has been a respite for me in the midst of daily chaos. As an aside, I adore the chaos that is our life, and would be sad and lonely without it! Anyway, our daily chores and to do's are enough to keep me busy for many years to come. Recently we have had some added things on our proverbial plate. Therefore, I have had no time to breathe, much less blog or keep a perfect house.

We are all well. We have just had some things going on which have led us to a lot of prayer and a time of looking at our priorities for our little family. Thankfully this has nothing to do with our health or Dh's job, but rather how we educate our sweet children. We LOVE a Classical Christian education. It has proven to be the best option for our children. They have truly grown in wisdom and knowledge. Their relationships with the Lord have also grown. They have learned Latin, Singapore Math, and grammar. Their school is a firm foundation, and we are so thankful. The school is going through some changes, so we are praying about where the Lord is leading us for next year. It may look a lot like this year, or He may have a new path for us. Thank you for understanding my absence and for being here upon my return!

This weekend we are excited to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior. Easter Sunday is a reminder of His gift of eternal life. He is RISEN, indeed! Happy EAster, y'all!

Life does have a way of "getting the way" at times.

Happy to hear that all is well with you and your sweet family.
The impact of a sound educational foundation is so important {not just because I'm a teacher} and will see them through their lives. Best wishes that everything works out for the best.

Happy Easter ~

So glad you are back. School choices are some of the hardest ones to make. Schooling impacts those little lives tremendously! May God give you the wisdom you need to make a good choice!

Happy Easter!

We've had much the same kind of's just been a hard one for our family and blogging has been the last thing I have thought about sometimes.
It sounds like you put the family first and your priorities of God and education are perfectly in order. Good for you!!
Glad you're back! Happy Easter!!

I am sure that you will figure out what will be best for your family. Educational decisions are so hard, and yet so very important! Good for you to really discern what the right choice will be. I am interested to hear what you do decide!
Happy Easter!

God will lead you, that is one of the many blessings of being a child of His!

I've said a prayer for you to have discernment and peace.

We are classical educators (with a big splash of Charlotte Mason thrown in) too.

Of course I have been MIA as well, so I didn't just miss you - but everybody in blogland! Trying to get back on track... As soon as baseball is over, our lives may get back to normal in our house! xox

Oh I just love you. Love the way you wrote about this. I think you are taking all the change like a champ and really depending on God which I admire so much!!! Education is so important but if something isn't right you can make changes and survive!
