After much, much, much, much, much, (nonstop really) prayer, we have made a decision I didn't think I'd make in a million years. In fact, had somebody told me this 9 years ago as I sat through hours of class at my University, I would have laughed, out loud, for weeks. Are you ready? We are going to homeschool B. Are you now laughing? Are you concerned? Are you going to call me in the morning with a "What are you thinking????" You are not alone. These thoughts are going through my mind as well. Not as doubts, but as "Can I really do this? What is God thinking?" I'm a little (a lot) scared. But I am also excited. God has a perfect plan and I can't wait to see his blessings when we are obedient to Him. Please know that: a.) This is God's decision and it's the path we will follow unless He leads us in another direction. b.) B has lots of interaction and with other children so don't worry. We have more opportunities than we will even be able to commit to! c.) We feel we are best able to provide him with the environment and guidance he needs to learn at this point in his life and development. d.) I'm very new to this kind of life so support and encouragement would be awesome! e.) We'll start with Kindergarten and reevaluate our decision (God's decision) each year.
Okay, I realize I look like I am defending this move and maybe I am a little. God knows (boy does he know!) I've wrestled with this for months. Soon, I will share everything that took us to this place because it is a great story of God's leading. But not tonight...or this morning (Morning! Yikes!) Tired mommies are not patient mommies.
