You know the old saying, "If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans"?
I keep going back to that, with my recent musings on planning, homeschooling, being flexible and changing directions.
I hope to write a real post about this in the next day or two, but for now, just think about this:
If, two years ago, you could have peeked into the future, would you have been able to predict everything that's happened in the last two years? What about five years? Ten?
Nope. I couldn't have.
Maybe the reason I don't stress too terribly (I do have my days, though ... please don't picture me serenely floating through each and every moment) about changes in our homeschool (style, curriculum, whatever) is that I've seen the many, many surprises God has sent our way. And, no matter how much they threw me for a loop at the time, they've been good.
Very, very good.
God has laughed at me so many times that I've lost count.
And, that's all I have time for right now -- bedtime stories are calling. Back soon.
