so remember when i wrote a post about our decision to send the kids (well just lily at the time) to a university model private school? i mean i remember that decision making process like it was yesterday. it was so emotional for me. i questioned everything. it felt so serious.
when we first considered a university school i said 'no way, no how' but when the rubber hit the road on actually figuring out kindergarten, i scaled back my personal and work commitments to make it work. i never thought it would be the right thing for us, but it sure was. fast forward three years and i would have told you all along that i would 'no way, no how' homeschool my kids. but here we are. and i'm homeschooling.
i have had so many people ask me why we came to this decision and there are so many facets of it, that i cannot even figure out how to explain it to anyone else other than that it is right for us. that i am fully excited and ready for it. that my kids chose it. that i know without a doubt it will be a challenge, but that it is the best for our family.
what that means for my friendships and community that i have built over the past couple of years? i'm honestly not sure. will i feel completely lonely and isolated? i certainly hope not. i just want to love my girls, help them learn, and enjoy some laughs along the way.
so here goes nothing...
