It really is a small world after all. (The new friend.)

OK, so maybe it’s a bit premature in calling her a friend. But, I’m hopeful. 😉

In the dentist’s office on Thursday last week, I got into a little conversation with another waiting mom.  Turns out she has three boys and one girl.  The ages of her children are almost exactly like my kids, minus Fiala.  She is planning on homeschooling all her kids in the fall.  (I feel so badly — I cringe! — that I laughed over why you can start, finally!  That was awful.  Awful.  Please forgive me.)  She’s a Christian.  She lives relatively close by to me.  She has a blog on WordPress.  And, in talking with her, she has a diagnosed wheat allergy, that, from what I can tell, sounds like undiagnosed celiac disease.  Wow.

Divine appointment, surely.

Cool, eh?


About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.

  1. Way cool. Wheat issues, homeschooling, proximity, Christian… sounds fantastic! [smile]
