Thankful Thursday/Homeschooling

What are all the things I am thankful for? How much time do you have? I am/was a stay at home mom. (more on that later)
I am thankful for the beautiful sunshine today. Every morning when I wake up and the sun is shinning I am so happy.
I love to look at all the photo's of snow but I love my mostly warm Texas weather.
I lived briefly in Boulder,Colo. now I could have stayed there but the Lord took us to Missouri. And thinking about living there reminds me of something that I am very thankful for.
We had some great family times in both places. I would have to say the best part was I got the opportunity to homeschool our daughter. She happened to be 15 when we moved to Boulder and celebrated her 16th birthday. Because of a lot of circumstances we ended up homeschooling her 10th grade year. I enjoyed no I loved it. We had an awesome time. We were pretty flexible in our curriculum because she had been in Christian Private school. And we knew that she would be back in a school environment. So we only did a computer/keyboarding class,english,history and a home and family living class and P.E. She was able to use her horse back riding as her P.E. credit. (notice no math no science. . . her instructor was not accredited in these areas. LOL)
When I started writing this post I really didn't intend to write about this although I have been thinking about it for awhile. And, I would love to show you some pictures. So I am going to cut this short. And go find some photo's to scan. So hang on and I'll write more a little later about our whole experience. And maybe open a discusion with some of you on Home Schooling and being a Stay at Home Mom. (notice I don't shorten that) If you are a Stay at Home Mom be proud. You are Blessed. You have lots and lots to be Thankful for on this Thankful Thursday.
And most of all don't let anyone challange you or ? you or your sanity or degrade you for your decision to Stay at Home.
If that is the case for you or you struggle remember this . . .

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts him, and I am helped.
My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.
Psalms 28:7
