What Was He Thinking

I remember sitting down at LongHorn last December as we opened up the floodgates about adoption.

I guess it was a total "lay it all on the table" day.

Because, as if the decision to officially enter into adoption wasn't enough, my sweet husband had one more thing he wanted to share heart about.

You see, for years he has wanted to go back to school. Like, school, school.

So, now here we are in September.
And my amazing husband has tackled three semesters of classes at Liberty University this year.
He also attended a week long "Intensive" at the LU campus back in May.
And just this week he started a new semester of classes.

I tell him he's all his teachers favorite. I think more often than not, he's the highest grade in the class. I giggle at him, because he doesn't just want to "wing it", he wants it to be the best it can be. SO, even after 14 years of preaching and teaching, he'll mull over a paper for hours before he turns it in. It's funny. And cute. (Oh yeah, and sometimes a teeny-weeny bit annoying. I wanna scream "It was great the first draft! Just hit submit!")

Our Autumn started high school this year. So, when we found out she had a math class during first semester, my husband decided he would take a math course this semester too. It's kinda cool they get to do that together!

So, while some days I wanna say "What were you THINKING??????"
More times than not, I'm more than willing to shush the kids for an hour while he studies. Or drag them to Publix so that the house is quiet. Or read his paper and give him my thoughts.

Sometimes it's not about what makes sense. It's about what's in your heart, and you go for it!
I'm thankful for a husband who has determination and heart to go after what he feels called to.

Here's to some more crazy wild months ahead!
