A Sad Wrap-up

We were chugging along so good, until Thursday. Kyndal decided that she couldn't live under the constraints of the rules of our home anymore, so she moved out with a friend. She has made plans to move to Missouri with her dad next week. She refuses to see me or talk to me. She claims I don't love her.

Needless-to-say, it's been a difficult weekend. Not only have I had to suffer the loss of my daughter and our relationship, but I have encountered other selfishness as well that has really taken a toll on me. To say I am fed up with the world right now would be an extreme understatement!

Rick and I are in the midst of trying to make plans for our future. We have determined that what we have been doing just has not been working. Something needs to change. Hopefully there will be news on that front soon.

In the meantime, we still have seven days left of this semester and I need to get myself in gear!

Dawson and I will be wrapping up our unit on slavery and pre-Civil War. We plan to take it kind of easy this week by finishing Uncle Tom's Cabin and watching the original mini-series Roots.

Brynne and I will concentrate this week on our Christmas books and activities. Later today, I will give a preview about what we are doing this week.

I feel like we have done really well this semester, despite the upheaval and turmoil we have experienced.

Stick with me. I'll be back to my old self soon.


  1. So sorry about the pain you are going through! May this season be one of healing for you.

  2. Praying for you ALL! Run to His arms and he'll give you what you need. Peace & Hugs to you...

  3. Nicole, I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter. I'm sure it's nothing you've done or not done....just her being a teenager (not that that's any comfort, probably). Hang in there.

    Sending positive thoughts your way and hoping the changes you make are just what you all need.

  4. Just stopped in from "Say What?!" and read about Kyndal. I'm so sorry . . . I'm in the middle of a custody issue and, my goodness, the selfishness is Hope it's encouraging to know that you have one more person praying for you this evening. A peaceful heart, trusting the Lord has a plan for you!

  5. Just now seeing this Nicole. I am so sorry. I will be praying for you all. The teen years can be tough for sure. Rest assured, God has a plan!


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
