Only 5 days left to my fast, counting today. I keep having to remind myself that I WILL get to eat again. I hope that in addition to teaching my flesh that it can't have everything it wants, my children are getting an example in staying with something even when it is hard.
Character development is one of the main things we strive for in our Christian homeschool. Most days I don't feel like I'm making any headway in this area. Constantly dealing with self-absorbed teenagers and one preteen can be quite discouraging. Once in a while I see glimpses of selflessness, like RoboBoy making breakfast for his sister this morning. Maybe there IS hope for these kids yet!

Dee Trope married her hero (John) in 1993. They homeschool 3 teenagers, Manboy (98), Fashionista (00) and RoboBoy (01). RoboBoy and Dee both have Aspergers Syndrome, also known as High Functioning Autism. Dee is a Jesus Freak who loves to crochet and write. She is also a runner. She runs about 3 miles 3 times a week and has participated in numerous 5K races. Her goal is to increase her distance to 10k and eventually be able to run a half marathon. Dee considers herself to be a “geek in training”. As an Aspie, Dee is generally happy to stay home, but loves keeping in touch with her friends via Facebook and Instant Messaging.
You might find her on Facebook (her favorite social media), G+, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, or even Youtube! She keeps a personal blog in which she shares from her quiet times. You can find it at http://dee-lightfullmoments.
