I've been thinking about this blog and what I want it to be. I read somewhere how a good blog should have a mission statement and a purpose. Hmmm... well, I guess this blog won't make the cut. I have no mission statement to share, no inspirational motto to rally the masses. I'm not a motivational speaker; I'm just a mom. All I want to do is share my heart. I want to share pictures of my kids for their grandparents to ooh and aah over. I want to share funny moments that I can look back on one day and remember. I want to share my successes and failures, so my girls, whom I'm assuming will read all of these posts one day, will know that I tried. Nope, no mission statement here.
However, I do intend to take this blog in a slightly different direction from when I initially began it earlier this year. I'm still going to talk about homeschooling with CC and post our activities and weekly plans. But, I'm also going to keep you updated on our life with Gorlin Syndrome. Anna getting that diagnosis was a game-changer. It's a very rare genetic condition, so I'm going to post what's going on with us as we live with it in hopes that our experiences can help other Gorlin patients. Right now, I know of only one other person in Alabama who has been diagnosed with it. If anyone else is out there in our state, please leave a comment and connect with us. I considered starting a separate blog just about all of this, but I really don't need another thing to keep up with, know what I mean?
Well, I have lots of other posts rolling around my head, but I'll save them for another day. I just wanted to send a little shout-out to let you know we're all okay and that I still plan to update this little space.
I'll leave you with a funny video of Mary at our last CC meeting for the year on Tuesday. Her class is rehearsing for their big presentation, and Mary improvs her own hilarious solo at the end of the Greek gods and goddesses song. And check out her hand motions! Love it! And it's so funny when the other kids turn and look at her at the end of her 'solo.' Priceless! Musical theater is soooo in her future! ;)
More ramblings coming soon!
