This has been one of the most trying years that we have had so I am hoping that next year brings much more consistency with it AND a little boy who has mastered the beginning reading concepts! Boys are so very different from girls and much more challenging in regards to the educational aspect! I was so very blessed by Ann's post this morning as I too was feeling down and discouraged, wanting to give up! She reminded me to praise through these imperfect moments! Please take time to read her post, " What to Do When You Want to Give Up and Stay in Bed" you will be blessed!
