HMWT ~ All About me

My name is Jill, mommy to 5 almost perfect sons, dh is still praying for a daughter.  This is our 5th year to home school.  At first, we started homeschooling for academic reasons.  My oldest son was diagnosed with a mild learning disability and the school was unable to pinpoint the diagnoses.  I wasn’t thrilled with what the public school had to offer my son during the upcoming school year.  So, here we are 5 years later, and it has been the most rewarding decision that I have made in regards to my precious blessings.  I am so glad that I followed the Holy Spirit and didn’t surrender to the outside worlds opinions, this includes family members.

We home school because it my duty and privilege to educate my boys academically, build character, and train my boys to love and fear the Lord.  It is my responsibility as their mother to prepare and equip my boys to be the servant God has designed them to become.  So, to put it in a nutshell, we home school out of  obedience to His divine law.

Our school is called, Climbing the Mountain, and read here why we have chosen this name. I anxiously look forward to meeting more homeschool mommies who have received the calling to educate and train their children at home.  Have a blessed school year.

Oh, about me, I’m just a struggling mother of 5 boys trying to have a quiet and meek spirit everyday despite the chiaotic storms that knock down the house each day.  5 boys hanging out with you 24/7 brings blessings and sometimes frazzles me to want to jump off the nearest bridge.  LOL! But, oh how I am so blessed to be loved by 5 special boys.  So,  nothing special nor ordinary about me.
