The other day it was late morning, the children and I were outside working together hanging up a couple of loads of laundry out on the line. Although my children are still young and not yet tall enough to hang them, they were a blessing to watch try to help me, racing each other to see who could get the next piece of clothing next for mommy to hang up. As we were joyfully hanging up clothing and singing I was watching all the the vehicles and big farm trucks drive by. I was thinking to myself, hmmmm, should my children be out here being that the 2 oldest are school age, and people think they should be in school, and also, the ones that know that we homeschool, do you think they are wondering why I am not inside sitting down teaching my children??? The thought briefly went through my mind and then I said, naahhhh, what better schooling and child training could their be than for my 4 homeschooled children to be right by their mommy, hanging clothes, and singing together.
This is a side note and has nothing to do with my post but, this is the 1st yr that I have a clothes line and I have a feeling that I am going to miss my line. I live in an area that get cold and a lot of snow, do any of you have ideas for what I could do so I don't have to use my dryer that often this winter????? Any comments are welcomed.
