Home at last.

I used to go to work before the sun came up and return home after the sun had set. I would eat dinner with my family and a couple hours later the kids would go to bed. Not long after that, my wife and I would go to bed, just to start it all over the next day. I saw my co-workers more than I saw my family. The more I did this, the more I realized this is crazy. This is not what God intended when He set the family in order. There once was a time when families all worked together. Children helped farm and learned the family trade. The mother took care of the schooling and meals. The father made products to sell and farmed. Can't that work today? Are we too advanced? Are things really better when we send our children off to be trained by strangers to learn who knows what, as parents go to separate jobs only to see one another briefly at night? Is that progress? I started giving these questions serious thought. As a family, we have started working toward a more self sufficient life where we could produce what we need, together. My wife homeschools the children and we have started growing more and more of our own food and I started getting my shop ready. When things got slow at work, I had a talk with my boss and volunteered to be laid off if he should need to send someone home. It was not too long after, he sent me home. So here we are, everyone at home, working together to make this thing work. Livin' the dream.
