It's Time

It's time to face the reality that I will no longer be a homeschooling Momma. I still miss it and likely always will, but I know that right now the time is not right to have five little girls learning at home with me. I want to be a good mom and a happy mom. One who can be there for them not only physically, but emotionally, and the reality of it is that I cannot do that if I home school them. I could keep home one or two, but that isn't fair to the others. Happily, they're all thriving socially in school and most are thriving academically. Those that aren't get lots of help at home. After all, it's not like I don't know how to educate my children :o).

Any guesses as to what my project will be for the next few weeks?

  1. We are so hard on ourselves as mothers. Your children will know and live out your wisdom in this as in all things. I have no idea on the project- maybe read some of those mighty books you listed last month? Maybe not make any more hearts for a while- but goodness those pictures alone are fabulous!!

  2. Well, I know that was a tough decision but I'm sure that God will confirm to you that the decision is the best for all!
    My guess is that you are going to cull through your homeschooling supplies and room and find a "home" for items that you are no longer going to use.
    Am I correct?

  4. I am thinking the same thing...getting rid of curriculum?

    Are you home schooling now? I can't remember?

  5. I know that you prayed through this decision. I pray that God will help all of your children thrive in school. Will Peanut start preschool next year? Or is she in it right now?

    I'm guessing, going through homeschool things and possible making a new room or area in replace of where your homeschool stuff was. Something close maybe?

  6. Deborah,
    Things do change as do the circumstances. Nine years ago I thought I would never homeschool again...I even sold quite a few of my books and supplies.

    It came as a surprise to me when I realized I would be homeschooling again in 2007, different reasons and different circumstances.( Of course, the LORD had to work in my heart on that one). But now I am thankful we are currently homeschooling. But I can't say I will do it until Charlotte graduates, because like I said,"different....."

    You have a tremendously full plate, I admire you so much.

    I am holding tight yet...I know I need to let go!
    Love you and I love your heart!

  8. I ditto the others as to what your project might be.

    I can only imagine how hard that would be, but take courage you are doing the best for your family. You are a great mom!!!

    We all need to bloom right where the Lord plants us, whether that involves homeschooling or not. :)
