Learning to Care
The kids and I spent this week caring for my Dad. We brought him home last Friday. I am so proud of how much love and joy my kids bring to a situation. Ryan and his grinning face and Arianna and her helping hand.
I didn't know how the kids would react to being around my Dad since he is "different" doesn't have movement on his left side and can be prone to be moody at times. Both kids enjoyed his wheelchair and didn't show any fear to Grandaddy being so different. I think they enjoyed spending the time at Mema's farm with Daddy as much as I did. I hope they are learning a bit about caring for others through this situation.
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” - Fred Rogers

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor souls who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." --Theodore Roosevelt
Who am I? That is a difficult question to answer! I am a wife to a loving man! I am a Mom of 2 wonderful children of which I homeschool. I love to scrapbook and take pictures mainly of the kids. I have five dachshund that are as close to kids as they get.
