So, Josiah's family moved across town.
Moving day(s) are the pits.
I would actually stay in this small house of ours, just so as not to have to move.
I went over to help them clean & organize their new home. I love to clean things when they are so open & spacious!! I must say , though,I am amazed at the amount of STUFF one can accumulate. Myself included I am sure.
Jane is also a homeschooler like myself. And as any homeschooler will tell you, books are a nightmare in a blessing disguise. We can't seem to get rid of them. They are like ball & chains around our ankles and we will never get rid of them to the point of death. You can pry them off our dead cold fingers. Thats about it. We love books. They become like family members and therefore becoming almost sin-like to get rid of them. We may consider loaning them out, but only if we have a clear understanding of who you are, and can be trusted with such a precious possession.
Yes, we homeschooler are ridiculous that way.
BUT WE GOT RID OF BOOKS!!!! Books that we know she will never use again..
I finally talked her into it, and feeling guilty that I did such a thing, I came home and have started getting rid of books in my house also. After all, organization and being able to control your stuff is much more valuable then stuff itself.
