- The toy train that my son loves to push around and around the house, was given to my oldest daughter for her 1st birthday. She never really played with it much, neither did my other daughter, but for some reason, we never gave it away. Now I know why!
- In college, the scholarship program I was in did a lot of community service. Who knew that the sidewalk chalk we used to make signs on campus, would also be the same chalk my children would use to make designs on our patio?
- A bible given to me for my high school graduation, and one in honor of my wedding, are now both used as study Bibles for my daughters in our history lessons.
- All of the puzzles, animal/insect books, construction paper, work/coloring books, pencils that my parents have always given my children for Christmas, birthdays, "just because" days, are now being used in our schoolroom. Who knew we'd ever be a homeschooling family? I had never "planned" to homeschool before becoming a mom, and even years into motherhood. Thank God that He knows much better than me! (Grateful to be homeschooling!)
