I asked my daughter the artist to draw this home flying away in a tornado.
The reason I asked her to draw it was I was thinking of the scene from (again) The Wizard of Oz. We are currently in the process of selling our home for about the sixth time.
Real Estate deals can get messy…and this one is literally, not just metaphorically!
It feels like our home is flying away like the one in the picture. Our stuff is going into storage and our future address is …unknown. Which is of course the scariest part. What does this have to do with homeschooling though?
I will be sad to say good-bye to my homeschool ‘classroom’ (a folding table in the breakfast nook). I am worried about all my books which are going into storage (because WHAT IF I NEED THEM?!) But mostly I am worried about HOW will I homeschool without a home?!
I guess I have to re-define home…..the saying that comes to mind is the tried and true…”home is where your heart is….” So where is my heart?
Jesus said in Matthew 6:21, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Uh oh. It sounds like my heart is ….in the house. I want my heart to be with the real treasure….
My children are the best treasures God has given me….and thankfully I don’t have to leave them behind! As long as we are together we will be learning…and that’s the heart of homeschooling!
