Missing in Action?

I have definitely been both missing and in action, recently!  I have to admit that much of my computer time is spent on Facebook these days, but I treasure being able to connect with our kids in this way, kind of “on their level”, while they still think it is cool for Mom to be their Facebook friend! 

As we gear up for another year of homeschooling, I will share a peak of what is going on in our home.  One daughter (age 18) has decided to study for the GED this next year rather than continue with high school classes – a move that is supported by us.  One son (age 20), who previously obtained his GED, is enrolled in some classes at our local community college.  Another son (age 18), who has FAS, is continuing in some behavioral patterns that have us seriously considering whether we should have him also take the GED and them work towards getting a full time job.  Either that or the Job Corps…  The son (age 21)we had to kick out of our home in October of 2007 has started coming back to visit, having stated his desire to work on repairing the family relationships and possibly move back home eventually (yes, our goal IS to have them all on their own eventually, but we welcome the opportunity to finish parenting him).  Our graduated daughter (age 18) is seeking employment in difficult economic times.  Our married daughter’s (age 22) husband has gotten a union job in Michigan and they are hoping for a sibling for their daughter, soon. Our oldest daughter at home (age 19) has started speech and language therapy and continues to work part time at Chick Fil A.  The rest of the kids (ages 13, 16, 17, and 19) will be hitting the books again in a couple of weeks, with a mom and teacher who will be glad to return to a regular schedule!   Oh, and looking forward to an extended “Parent Teacher Conference” with their principal (aka, Dad, hubby) in September!! 

In a nutshell, lots of ACTION!!  Sorry about the missing part, though… I am at least scheduling time to do some writing, although the fruits of that labor will hopefully be found in book format one of these days… or years…
