I believe that God has a great sense of humor, as He gave me my most energetic, challenging, “master-of-disaster”, last-born child when I was nearly too old to run and catch her. Sometimes the hustle and bustle of life and homeschooling prevents me from seeing the joy that my 8 year old Abigail Joy brings to our lives.

As a relative “newbie” to homeschooling, I love when I get an occasional email from “Sizzle Life” that make me smile, and remind me of the special gift God gave me with my “sizzler”.

I first heard Carol Barnier at a Convention a few years ago. Her first question “Who has a child who falls off their chair EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. ?” was spot on my life. I’ve since followed her witty writing style and inspiring advice through her books at the Library and on her blog: http://sizzlebopblog.wordpress.com/

Her latest email/blog post had some great ideas on teaching your child to “Hold That Thought” and wanted to pass on to you. I hope to try a few of them with my live-wire.

Blessings,

Denise Simons
